Hello,

I am selected for an interview as an photographer in an cruise ship. Now, how shall i show my portfolio?

I plan to copy all photos on an CD and show them... is it ok? Also, do i need to resize the photos in photoshop like 4x6, 5x7 etc... and burn to CD or i can show them in their original size...

Photos OK to edit
I'd do something different and put all your photos on a DVD set to music. But then again, I am married to a video editor.

If you are just showing them on a screen, there is probably no need to change the aspect ratio to 5x7 or 8x10 etc.

If you can, you should use actual prints.

Bring them in a Black folder with dark gray acid free paper separating them. I'm sure that would be very impressive.

However, showing them on disc would also be fine. Or, you could upload them to Flickr and just use their built in slideshow.

You many want to save at various resolutions. Ratio doesn't matter so long as the composition is good.

Save the images so that when viewed on screen they look good at 100%.

On my 1600 x 1050 screen, I find images that are a max of 800px on the long edge work well.

This way you are viewing the images at 100% size and you don't have to zoom in/out to see them properly.

The ratio (whether 10x8 or 7x5) only affects composition. the number of pixels is more important to be able to see the image at 100% on the screen without having to zoom.

Prints are way better for showing your work . "A good bigun beats a good littleun any time"...
BUT if they have specified CD/DVD . you should use that medium . If they have given an instruction as to the way in which your work is to be presented and you show up with other ideas.... It wo'nt matter how good your images are, they will not hire anyone who can't follow simple instructions....
