    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    So I recently had some comments about my portfolio not being exactly what it could be. I know it needs some work, but I don't really know where to go from here. The kind of jobs I am aiming for are photographing (in no particular order):
    Children
    Weddings
    Nightlife/Parties
    People
    Pets
    Events


    I thought that showing in my portfolio, two images of each of the areas that I believe define me as a photographer would help with this. (again in no particular order):
    Children
    Weddings
    Events
    "Art"
    People
    Pets
    Nature
    Events

    What my final product is: www.carolinedixey.com/portfolio

    Critique so far is that the images are out of focus, look like snapshots, and are blown out. So what images <i>should</i> I have in my portfolio? Are the images just plain bad? Do they misrepresent me? I know looking through all my images was enough work for me, so I wouldn't wish that upon anyone else, but a general critique and/or a recommendation of book/website that helps with portfolio building would be much appreciated.

    In case you're interested, nearly all of my photography is stored online and available for viewing at: (I'm still working on making a lot of my images into selections on my website.)
