Ted Martin replied to Ted Martin's discussion Booth to crowded?
"Thank you Susan, I believe I will be using one table with a full fitted cover. As for the tent it is a 10x10 but just looks large because of the wide angle lens I was using. I hope to do this booth setup again in the near future if it ever stops…"

Ted Martin replied to Ted Martin's discussion Booth to crowded?
"Thanks for taking the time to help me out. I have heard a couple times about to much or to busy looking booth. I think I will go with 2 print bins and one table. I had to put this tent up on my deck because it is still snowing up hear, the photos…"

J. Warren emerson replied to Ted Martin's discussion Booth to crowded?
"I can't tell how you hang your framed photos on the wall.  If you used the top cross bar, what will happen on a very windy day?  If the tent sides start flapping back and forth, what will happen to your framed items.  If a…"

Cindy Welch replied to Ted Martin's discussion Booth to crowded?
"You have received some good advice.  My question is, are those moving blankets on your tables?  That is what they remind me of.  We use them for moving our furniture for my upcycle/repurpose business.  Not attractive for a…"

Susan Callaway replied to Ted Martin's discussion Booth to crowded?
"Stick to one table and hang your work on the walls. Try for a more 'gallery' approach. If you are using six foot tables, they are going to eat up the space inside the booth quickly, once you get people trying to stop and look at each item…"

Sandra J. Atkins-Moran replied to Ted Martin's discussion Booth to crowded?
"Make sure you have enough room for handicapped access.  Wheelchairs do need enough room to maneuver.  These people are your customer, too."

Jan Weaver replied to Ted Martin's discussion Booth to crowded?
"I think you have received excellent advice from other photographers.  You have done many things right, and kudos to you for doing so much so right on your first effort.  I am not a photographer, and will leave that alone, but my first…"

Larry Berman replied to Ted Martin's discussion Booth to crowded?
"Too many print bins and too much going on for a good booth picture. Never have anything on the ground (or outside the 10x10) for a booth picture. It took me years to figure it out and once I did my gross for each show increased. Only two sizes, one…"

Ted Martin replied to Ted Martin's discussion Booth to crowded?
"Thank you for your advice Fletcher. The first thing you mentioned was the large print bin covering the wall art,  it was the angle of the shot...I was on my knees and it will not block my wall images. Good point on the other print bin being to…"
