Portfolio making - help

I might have a chance to give a basic photography workshop thanks to my mum shilling me everywhere. They have asked to see a resume kinda thing. My problem is I dont have anything set up for a portfolio and Im not sure how to design it.
Would you all be so kind as to give me a few tips on this?

What was your first major purchase, how much did you spend, and looking back was it a good idea or would you change it?

I don't mean what you bought first. I mean when you decided "I am investing in this hobby"

I'm on the cusp of my tipping point from leaving an old point and shoot, and I'd like to hear your stories.

meta/gear/fagging general

Ohai anons

After shitposting and venting my frustrations about gearfagging on this board in multiple threads, I decided to try and do something constructive instead
I kept seeing these """debates""" about who has more cameras, which ones are allegedly bigger, what mount has more lenses, y'know the typical /gear/ bullshit where nobody really knows anything and just shills something or another

So anyway, bitterness aside, I scraped the data used in the upcoming graphs from dpreview
Not because it has the most complete set of items but because...well it was the first thing that I thought of and apparently there's no nice and easy dataset out there with this stuff, so I had to build it myself via scraping. Maybe dxomark would be a good option as well but I dunno. I am more than open to suggestions

All in all dpreview has roughly 2200 cameras and I think smth like 800 lenses.

Well to start things off, pic related is an overview of lenses indexed, grouped by mount, from the most representative top 10 mounts in the set, so these are the mounts I will be grouping by when it comes to lenses

Feel free to ask questions and make requests!

tl;dr I plotted some shit from dpreview for your entertainment

Why does recovering the shadows in a correctly exposed overall scene result in an underwhelming kind of fake look?
Common example: 1-2 trees in a well lit, well exposed scene. I feel that when i bring the shadows out i have an image that feels less alive

Plea for help/retouching practice

No.3183010 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
Hey guys,

I just got back some rolls from my Pentax 67, and for some reason most of them were horribly underexposed (though some were exposed perfectly, not many in-between except for this photo)

I have tried to salvage this but I was wondering if any of you guys could take a stab at it, I would be extremely grateful.

Here's a high-res of the raw scan:

Thanks in advance to whoever tries
