So you want to enter a fine art festival with your photography, do you? Well, read on. The show starts by reading all the info the show sends out to the artists telling them everything they need to know, from directions on how to get there, to when to pack it up. It's not really surprising to me how many artist don't or can't read, but that's another story. The day of the show begins with booth set up, then highly scientific placement of the art (with a smile). As the public starts to stream in, the questions start. Examples; "Who took these photos?" "Can I hang here because it's shady." "Boy you must have a great camera!" "Where do you get that printed?" "Is that the real price?" Mother to her daughter, "You can do that with your cell phone camera." It goes on and on, but what makes it really worth showing and selling is when someone walks in, and with one verbal discharge says, "Wow!" Yep, that's what it's all about. Oh yeah, it's also nice to have people see a value in your work, that they will pay to have it hanging in their home, office, or garage! Thanks to those that came out to the show! It was all good...
