This morning, I stepped out of my studio on a mission: I needed good photos of my art in a craft show or market setting.  I needed to show potential venues how my pieces might look if they invited me to show or sell in their space.  I hoped to shoot some beautiful photos of my pieces telling a more cohesive story.

Last week I reached out and reserved the fellowship hall at my church for a photography session.  I rented a white table cloth, and got all my prints together as well as a few display pieces that I had made for past events. My husband helped me load several boxes into the car. I'm just getting started, but I want to look like I've done this before! 

What I brought:

  • Camera and tripod
  • easels and display pieces
  • art and signage
  • iron and ironing board
  • 6 foot table cloth that I rented

What I used at the church:

  • their beautiful space
  • one 6 foot table
  • natural and overhead lighting

My takeaway: the space was beautiful and provided me with everything I needed to create sharp photos of my art in a potential market setting.  Now, armed with great photos of my work, I'm ready to start applying for some shows! I hope to see some of you in the Anderson and Greenville area as I start planning to attend some markets for the holiday shopping season.

Since I want to focus on creating beautiful art, I’ll let someone else handle the manufacturing, shipping, and delivery. I’ll sell templates, downloads, and of course, my original art on my own site. I’ll still work with a few trusted partners to create things like canvas art and cell phone cases to sell on my own site, but my plan is to shift a lot of the products to places like Redbubble and Zazzle so my international customers can have a better experience with my art.

The CASE actaims to make it easier and more affordable for artists and copyright holders to assert authorship rights if their work is infringed. They could go to small-claims court or a regional court to file a dispute. I still hope that it's a long time before I have to go to battle for my rights as a creator, but I'm grateful that there are other organizations campaigning to make the process easier for creatives like me.
