Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
This may sound like a stupid question (total newbie here), but what do you do when people try to photograph your work in your booth? I participated in my first "supposedly" juried art fair last weekend, (which wasn't really juried, and lame, but that is probably for another thread) and several people took pictures of my work with their cell phones. I asked the one guy who did it why he was photographing my work and he said he wanted to put it on his blog. I didn't know what to think. What do you ya'll tell people to do when this happens?
I'd given up trying to stop people. Then I read here about how inexpencive it is to get a poster size image made from a digital file.
I'm not letting photos be taken now, AND because it might be well intentioned and not an attempt to steal the image, I am offering to send them an appropriately sized image. Something smaller than 1M. This allows me to be friendly, engage the person in conversation, find out their intent, get an address and have a second contact with them when I send the image. You can also send a larger image with a watermark.
Wow, good info. I'll have to look, I select "save for web" and assumed if I also limited my file size I was good.
