Photo Exhibition Help!
I've been invited to put some photos into a small exhbition in Shropshire - proving it's not "what you do" but "who you know". So, I'm after some suggestions of what are my most saleable pieces - to a general rather than muso audience.

So, I need help from all my friends list in picking out four pieces that might both show off what I can do, and what might sell.

Will this make you officially an exhibitionist? ;P

Was that supposed to be helpful? :-P

Pretty young girls not wearing much clothing or dramatic landscapes, I reckon.

Which is more important from this exhibition, selling the print, or selling what you can do.

(Actual choices will probably have to wait until I get home and can look at strange images on a computer monitor, which I really shouldn't in a big open plan office)

Good question - in this case - selling the print. It's a "local artists thing" rather than an industry/commissioning showcase.

Re: Suggestion...

Good suggestion. I'll think about it, but suspect the landlocked Shropshire might not be the best place for coastal shots.

I think I'll have to face the reality that I've just not got many decent suitable landscapes. I might go "twee" and dig out some of my Shropshire-English-Heritage photos.

I do like that one. Not sure of the wider appeal though.

I think I'll ransack my "people" rather than "music" portfolio for my shortlist.

Your best pic in my book!

admittedly my book is both thin and lacking a chapter on good photography

Go for the "beardy-larper" audience?

Did you get my email btw?

I liked the stained-glass ones quite a lot.

Ok. I suspect, like the English Heritage ones, that might contravene the "personal use only" for photographs in the museum - however I'll do some test prints and see how they look.

The top three aren't specific links - but let's face it that Gary Numan photo has to be up there in the top photos I've taken.

Yeah that picture is awesome. I hadn't seen that one before!

Haven't spent any time looking but the only one which springs to mind as something really super was the marble shot I said I liked. Will look at another time though - S's b'd today so taking him out for the night in 10 mins.
