Laura, from your photo, it appears that your grouping is very well arranged and looks quite nice. I can't see the images well enough to know how they actually are. But I assume they're fine. Congratulations on doing this show!

I do shows (both indoor and outdoor), and a common theme with customers when it comes to photography is, "I can do that." And because they have a cell phone that takes pretty good pictures, they believe they can. Sometimes I invite them to do so. It's quite discouraging when one is trying to sell photography. But every now and then someone comes in and expresses amazement or appreciation and that makes up for the disdainers.

Good luck. And I hope you sell. That's icing on the cake!

“I could have done that!” Is simply an ignorant comment.
A kin to "My kid could do that." an actual comment that I over heard at a Jackson Pollack exhibit.

Ignore ignorance!

Shoulda, woulda, coulda, they didn't do that, you did. I've overheard people say that standing in front of a painting of a world famed artist. You had the courage to show your work and your photos look really good.

Congratulations on your show.

You have an eye for photography. DON"T let anyone make you feel different, who knows what you can do in the future!

Laura,

It looks to me when you pause your life to creat one of your images, you are creating something you saw in your mind. Something bigger than what was actually just there, therefore no one else could have done what you did.

Good job, keep creating!
