Say I did a series of mini-sessions on one day. Entirely different clients taking up 9 different 1/2 slots in one day. May I use images from the different time slots that day? Or no go? Thanks!

1/2 hour slots -----not 1/2 slots - my apologies.

Dana - ultimately you're the only one who can answer if your mini sessions meet the criteria (different events, different clients, different jobs), but I would caution that you really want to make sure (assuming you decide these mini sessions meet the criteria), that your set of 20 images shows a good variety of skill sets across the work you do. Do you feel these sessions show a solid cross section of your work? Do they show variety? Remember, it's about showing the very very best of what you do.

I am nervous because I am a strictly natural light shooter. I don't have a studio or strobes. I hope the natural light variety is sufficient for the judges. (I am dreading this protfolio review).

Doesn't matter if you're natural light, studio light, candle light or flashlight... It's about what you do with it :)

You need to show control and forethought in your images and make sure, without question, that they are your very very best. It's not about how quickly they can be pulled together, either, it's about quality. Have you posted any in the anonymous critique gallery yet?

No I have not. How do I do it anonymously, since my name is attached to all my posts? I guess I need to take the time to search this forum more!

I am in a rush, so to speak. I was originally going to wait until the next round, but figured I'd get these in and get some feedback before they tighten the reigns in June.

All my CPP submissions - the first one and for HS Senior Specialty, were of natural-light portraits.

Did you utilize a reflector/diffuser in your images, Cassandra? I did not use it in about 2/3 of them.

Maybe not every one, but unless the light is absolutely perfect I usually need to use something.
