7.2: Build Your Digital Photography Portfolio

  • Page ID
    3136
  • In the previous lesson, you selected photos and drafted your reflections. Now, it's time to build your digital photography portfolio. Create a page in the portfolio for each of the topics on the Concept Checklist. For each concept, be sure to include the concept title, a description of the topic and why it's important, your photos that show not applying/applying the concept, and your reflections on how the photos demonstrate what you've learned.

    One way to create the portfolio is to print your photos, attach them to paper or poster board with glue or double-sided tape, and write your reflections next to the photos. You can also create this same look digitally with a word processor like Google Docs word processing or Microsoft Word. This example uses Creative Commons licensed photos. For your portfolio, you must use your own photos!

    Another way to create the portfolio digitally is using presentation software. Again, this example uses Creative Commons licensed photos. For your portfolio, you must use your own photos!

    You could also create the portfolio with Glogster (EDU), VoiceThread, or other Web 2.0 tool.
