Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I usually snap a picture at my shows of my latest booth display.The photo below is from Virginia Beach last weekend. It is the original photo (made smaller for faster uploading). I usually crop these and play with the color and lighting before I upload them to ZAPP. This summer I did not get into all the shows I wanted to. I am planning on shooting my next booth photo indoors in an empty gallery space. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can improve this for jurors? Lighting, arrangement, photo editing, etc. I have a 12 megapixel point and shoot. I can set a timer and have it on a tri-pod; and I have access to good lighting. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

* Looks like you used a floodlight to light the display. So I think the color correction needs to include the center and left walls (and the left-most part of the right wall). EZ to fix this in Photoshop.
* Agree with Larry about the crop. I might even crop down more from the top (see how you like this idea).
* If you reshoot this again, I'd add a rug for a splash of color (even though you're not in the rug business. ;-) ) There are a lot of gray tones in walls of panel, bins, and back wall of the room.
* If you can, burn in the four vertical pieces on the right wall. They're a bit "hot" and missing detail.
