Booth Photo Question for submission! | Can I set it up in my yard? for Jury Photo?

I have been gathering all the supplies needed to complete my booth set up!  I have finally arrived !  Excited to set it up & take photos of it for submission. 

My question is.. You think it will be ok to set it up in the yard? Or my storage location where there is plenty of room?   Or is a must to have it set up at a actual show?   There are deadlines coming upper some Florida shows and I need to have this done soon.. 

What is the best practice?  Will it work against me if i just set it up at the house?   

Do they care?  any advice for success would be appreciated..   Chris

It should be fine, you will edit it down enough that the outdoor location is unimportant. Try to do it on an overcast day -bright sun is no good.  You need to show all 3 sides down. Set your tripod at around 53 inches high. Look up photographer Larry Berman's booth photo guidelines - extremely helpful. Best wishes! :-)

I've worked with hundreds of artists having them set up their booth at home and emailing me the picture. We go back and forth on the phone with me making suggestions on moving things around or changing camera angle. They end up with a great looking booth picture.

Then there are artists that come to my house and set up their booth for me to photograph it. We analyze the picture on my computer, make changes and reshoot and end up with a great looking booth picture.

If you're going to go through the process, read this article first.

Yes...if you want your booth photo to be spectacular...follow Larry Berman's him n have him walk you thru your shots...he is amazing and his cost is very reasonable.   Best.Investment.Ever...  I set up at a fair n Larry walked me through changes along the way and returned to me a booth shot I am very proud of!

I set mine up on my driveway at the end of winter! I don't think anyone was the wiser.
