Ryan Moyer replied to Kirk Bergman's discussion 2 types of photography in 1 booth
"In my experience, the only people who care about the consistency of the work are the jurors. Obviously with a poor layout you can turn people away from your images if you do something like putting a bright vibrant image next to a dark moody one,…"

Ryan Moyer replied to Debbie Friis-Pettitt's discussion Buff Pro Panels for sale
"I am interested but I am a bit confused.  On the pro panels website it shows the "buff" color as tan/brown.  The panels in the image here look grey.  Which color are they?"

Larry Berman replied to Ryan Moyer's discussion When jury and show requirements don't mesh
"Have the jury style of work on the back wall of your booth picture and the other images on a side wall. And like I suggest for other artists who might be challenged about their work, carry an 8x10 or 11x14 print of your booth picture. Having both…"

I recently, for the first time, received some feedback from a jury on a show I had applied to.  The feedback was very helpful, and it ended up highlighting an issue that I have been struggling with for a while.In most applications there is a requirement that the body of images submitted should be representative of the work that will be displayed.  In some cases the applications even go as far as to say that work that is not represented in the application will not be allowed to be displayed at…See More

Ryan Moyer commented on Sandy Walker's blog post What's This Jury Panel all About?
"I'm sorry to bump an old thread here, but I see a lot of people referencing their jury scores here.  How do you get those?  Are they just given with some shows or are people asking the even coordinator for them?"

Larry Berman replied to Ryan Moyer's discussion Any advantage to local scenery in jury images?
"For the better shows it doesn't jury well because they want a more creative presentation. For the lesser quality shows, they might go for it. I've done shows over 35 years and never tried to tailor my subject matter, but I've seen it…"

"I don't think it helps any, and if the image is less impressive than your regular jury shots, you're hurting yourself."

Any advantage to local scenery in jury images?

I am a landscape photographer that generally just does shows regionally. Given that, many of the places with shows I'm applying to are places I have landscape images of.I will certainly be selling those local images at the festivals if I get in to them, but does it make sense to include one or more of them as one of my jury images if it is a good image but not one I would normally count as one of my top 4?That is, does it make sense to include an image taken at Sun Valley when applying for the…See More
