The last few days I've been trying to figure out which pieces I should use for my jury photos. I set everything up and tried to take my beast pictures. These are a few of the ones I have so far. I personally think the gray background washes out some of them out, so I'm off to the craft store to get some more scrap booking paper to redo all of them.
This is honestly very hard for me. I'm not a real great photographer and I cannot afford to pay anyone to take them for me. So hopefully I'll be able to get three good ones this afternoon.
These pictures are the ones of my necklaces. I think I'm going to go with my Sea Shore necklace. It's really hard for me to narrow them down. I know they are going to judge me on the three pictures I pick.
So I think I'm going to go with my Sea Shore necklace, my Art Deco Challenge cuff (Latte at Hotel Mercedes), and my blue beaded hoops with the lampwork beads. I think these represent my work pretty well.
I go back and forth in whether my stuff is good enough for a juried show. Some days I think I have very good pieces, and then other days I feel like I am just adequate and there is no way that I'll be able to make into any shows. I actually had someone I work with tell me she didn't think I had a chance at getting into one of the shows I was applying for. Yeah, thanks for being my friend. So I'm just going to apply and let happen what every happens. What's the worst that can happen, I'll be rejected. That's fine. I think I've come to terms with that.
So hopeful I'll have some new pictures by tomorrow so we can all compare them. I'm off to the store right now.
