Photography as art, the vision in my mind, captured by the camera.

Into the Marketplace we go!

I know, it’s been a long, long time since I’ve posted – I’d like to say I’ve been busy taking pictures, and although I have, it’s just life in general that’s prevented me from posting.

However, today, I have news. This weekend, I will have a table at The Hub Market in Fort St. John, BC on Saturday, Nov 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a selection of prints for sale. Printed on fine art paper (Moab, if anyone is interested) and mounted in mats I got from matshop.ca. I’ve spent the last three weeks sorting and editing my pictures – you know how it goes, you take 10 or so pictures to get “the one” that is perfect. So there was a lot to sort through.

I took this picture this summer – the number of bees hanging out in my garden was incredible, and they didn’t even care that I was there, in their faces with my macro lens. They just kept on doing their thing. This is one of the prints I will have at The Hub on Saturday.

It’s kind of exciting to be going to a market for the first time. But also a bit scary. What if no-one buys anything? Although, my oldest daughter says she hopes I don’t sell her favourite prints, because apparently she wants to keep them. I could print one up for her, if she’s really that keen. I might even let her have it for free. But only if she makes a new pot of coffee first.

  1. never worry about how you’ll be received Tania.Always do what you do for you & you’ll never fail.Pictures & people are like locks & keys.There many locks out there & many keys.A person may like a particular picture,but another comes along & doesn’t.’t it’s about finding that one key to open up that one lock.If you create a outstanding shot,many people will want to buy it(many keys) & if it’s a mediocre shot fewer keys are to be had.No matter what the shot is,there is always someone out there who will buy it.It may take longer to find that one key,but you’ll sell.
    We have out Christmas market on the 3rd.Good luck with your market & let me know how you did please?
    thanks for dropping in!
