Earlier, late summer, I was asked to bring some of my work in to a local store (on consignment) to sell my photos of some of the local hot spots. I am so excited and getting things together and ready. The store is only open during the summer months since that is when our tourists come as well as for the local races at the Watkins Glen Nascar Race Track. So that will all begin around April 2009.
As well as, just recently (a week or so ago), I stopped at the local Antique Mercantile in Montour Falls, NY to do a bit of Christmas shopping and I got to talking to the owner. She wants me to do some photos, vintage style, and bring them in. She wants to put up an area with photos and frames (antique/vintage style) and would like me to do some of our local hot spots as well. She is open all year round and will buy them as soon as I get them to her.
I am so excited. I am working hard on getting a stock supply going of some of the shots I already have. As soon as we get some of that white stuff during winter, I will go out and get some shots of it. Otherwise I really have to wait until spring to start shooting again. All the falls are frozen, trees are bare and the sky is dull gray so….not the best time to shoot. :) I’m just anxious and want to get out there and get some shots. lol Come on weather….give me something to work with. lol
Just wanted to share as I am excited about it all. My first paying photography job..lol Wow! Who would have ever guessed this about 3-4 years ago prior to me starting to really get into digital photography. I’m growing up!!! hehe!
So if anyone has any suggestions or help they might want to offer, I’m open to any and all that I can get. I am still working on the vintage/antique look. Also, I do not often do “hot spots” but just capture a moment I might be in and find a shot. So taking shots of those populated spots will be new for me. If you have any suggestions as to how to compose, capture, etc. those places where there is normally people walking around and in your shot, or how to compose a photo of a local B&B, hotel, etc. I am open to ALL suggestions. Thanks so much for any help you might have to offer.
