    I just graduated from college and started getting my portfolio finalized with branding, I am a portrait photographer though I am not so sure if I should include some of my more artist ones. The following is an example series I have entitled "mouthsters." It is an old technique where you photograph the mouth upside down, however I feel I brought a unique twist to it.

    My question is that even though this is not technically a portrait, it can be seen as one. Would it be worth including this in my portfolio? My style is edgier than most people and I believe I have images in my gallery for reference.

    Haha these are hilarious. I've seen it done before, but never with the personality portrayed here.

    Thank you :) and that is what I figured. So far the only portfolios I have sent out with these are the extremely edgy studios!

    I have a couple more I am still fine-tuning, but it has been difficult to portray the same strength of expression with other people :x
