Art Fair Insiders

Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

I'm trying to start attending local art fairs, so this is my first attempt at setting up a booth and taking pics. Simply set it up in the driveway and went from there.  I know it's not great so any suggestions would be very helpful.

Eliminate the table and never put anything on the ground. The center of attention is the gap in the middle between the two sets of panels. The cleanest booth picture for jurying is just three ten foot walls. Then hang the pictures more symmetrically.

Larry always has good advice.  I used three of the tent walls when I took my photos because to me it gives it more of a finished look.

The use of the black panels and the grey panels look strange. Additionally, the gap between the back panels shows too much brick. I also notice too much other distracting stuff outside of the booth shot that is distracting such as the house, basketball goal and trees. There is a wealth of information on this site about improving booth photos that you can read and the vast majority of excellent advice comes from Larry 

Thanks for the advice.  I'll work on it and come back with a better submission next time.  If I go with a single color for the fabric walls should I go with the gray or the black? is a neutral color, and won't DARKEN the area inside your tent.
