I'm debating entering some of my photos into the local fair this year. Mostly, it would be for the thrill of seeing my photography displayed publicly. A little part of me thinks I may even be able to sneak away with a prize or two.
But, I need opinions from you, faithful readers. You are probably the most familiar with my work.
The fair has thirteen lots. You can enter once per lot, in one of three classes. The classes are color, black and white, and groupings. I am almost thinking that groupings is the way to go if I want prizes. My guess is that way fewer people enter the groupings class.
Here are the lots, with the photos I am thinking of entering in that lot grouped with them (some photos may work in more than one lot, but entries are limited to one photo per lot per person, so I am trying to get the best photos into the lots that work the best for them).
4. Waterscape (i.e. rivers, lakes, raindrops, waterfalls, etc.)
8. Portraits and People
10. Altered/Abstract Images
11. “Life in Benton County” people or activities
12. Pattern & Textures
13. Still Life
Probably the hardest one to decide will be the Animals lot. After all, most of my pictures are of animals, be they my dogs or other animals. I figure I may be able to get away with a great Action picture of an animal, if I can find one. And I think I have a candidate for the Altered/Abstract image. The rest of it all, though... I'm not sure. Of course I don't have to enter every lot, but I figure, why go halfway with it?
Here is the link to my full Flickr album of photos I am thinking of entering in the fair. Please comment on the photo or here on the blog and let me know what pictures you think should be entered!
