An experienced artist's suggestions: Forget whether or not you are "worthy." Focus on making your work great by pushing what YOU find most exciting in it. LEARN from other photographs how to improve,. Rock the contacts, "getting it out there."

Best of luck.

Of course you’re qualified. I noticed you have one trait I lack... enough courage to put it out there. I’ve been shooting most of my life and never have had courage to share outside the family. Your stuff looks great in the pictures submitted so go for it!

It's usually the ones that say, "I could have done that" who are the ones who never in a million years could have done that! Well done!

I have my first pop-up show in a small local art gallery! I don’t feel worthy and I’m probably not. Of course, I am nervous that someone will walk in, look at my work and say “I could have done that!” But it is what it is. I am patting myself on the back just because I had the nerve to put myself out there! :)


Congratulations... and feel good about the recognition...

I'll also pat you on your back. No, no one else could've done this. Great job.

Be proud of you're own work. If you are happy with it, there's no need to compare it to anyone else's. Best wishes >Alan

Here's a big "Atta-Boy" Laura!! You did it! The first showing all the way through to the last (late last winter), about a dozen in between, I said the same thing- not worthy, not good enough. But, ya know what Laura, that's your work up there, it is good and you are worthy. Be proud, be happy!!!
