Editing Your Shit

September 06, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I recently watched a documentary on photographer Annie Leibovitz. One part that stuck with me was when she was talking about the move from San Francisco to New York. That a big part of her growth as an artist came when Annie became friends with a Photo editor from Vanity Fair and she started helping Annie edit her work. That it helped her learn to figure out why certain pictures worked and certain pictures didn't from the same session. 

 
Right now I find myself hitting my head trying to figure out which images from my portfolio you feature each week on the new site and which ones to just file away. I have to admit, not feeling confident about this process. (I don't have a friend from Vanity Fair.) I've been procrastinating on it. 
 
But I have noticed from showing people stuff on my IPad, that more isn't better. My current portfolio is probably way too big to be an effective selling tool. I need to learn to edit things down. Any suggestions?
