"Thank you, how do you store the sections? My pieces are heavy (I bought the system used so don't know if the newer pieces are lighter) and carrying them is tough. I decided to use plexiglass rather than glass, they are heavy as well. I guess my…"

"I think straight on looks best. The walls are slanted due to parallax (converging parallel lines). They can easily be straighten in Photoshop but you need a much wider shot to allow room for cropping. Or.. get your camera lower, look at the LCD and…"

Larry Berman replied to Scott Zuziak's discussion Booth critique :)
"If you've shot wider then the booth, it's relatively easy to square up the walls on left and right so the booth doesn't look like things are crooked or falling over. And definitely remove the poster with your name on it, or remove…"

Booth critique :)

Hello everyone.  First art show is this weekend in Reston... I am SOO EXCITED!!!I showed pictures of my booth last year and received a lot of great critique.  Thank you! Here are some updates on my new booth.  I basically re-did everything.  I am really happy with it now.  I did have one question.  When submitting my booth photo for jury, do you prefer the image that is centered or the image that is off center?  I kind of prefer the Off Center because of the orientation of the display case...…See More

"Hi Barry. Yep, the first year we tried to get into Old Town and Lakefront we got it. We were blown away! Didn't always happen after that. As to this: "Seriously, it is easier to get into Old Town, than Lakefront." You are right. Both…"

"Connie, the parking for Old Town is right near the show. Once you set up parking is easy. Maybe there is an airbnb nearby that isn't too expensive. Which one is 3 days? I didn't bother applying to Old Town."

Barry Bernstein replied to Scott Zuziak's discussion Old Town Art Fair OR Lakefront Festival of Arts
"If you were in the clay category, I would say Old Town because I am just on the wait list for Lakefront and I want your space. Perhaps the wait list is not by category. If I was totally honest I would say Lakefront. The greedy person inside me says…"

"Thanks everyone for the advice.   I am not 100%, but I’m leaning toward Milwaukee.  Barry, i am in between old town and Milwaukee and will stay at my house... maybe we will be able to meet? :)  So the travel is not a concern.…"

"Wow. It looks like he lives an hour from both shows, right smack in between them! I had first posted that he was an hour north of Old Town, and since I don't frequent the area I didn't consider that that is exactly the same distance to…"

"Oh no, what a hard decision, Scott. Two good shows. I'd put the choice down to which is most convenient for you. Expenses in Chicago are high (although the last time I was there i found a hostel not too far away). It is congested, parking is…"

"First time applying and getting into two top shows. Congratulations. I'd easily pick Lakefront over Old Town. Besides the potential being much better at Lakefront, it's indoors (large tents that you can drive to your space in) and not as…"
