I think it's wonderful that you're showing your work. The first time is always the hardest! Kuddo's for you.

Yes, I am sure there are photographers out there that can and will say "I could have done that!" - but their photographs are not up on those walls! Your photographs are up on those walls! I know there are photographers out there that can out shoot me. But if I have photographs up on a wall, in a public place, that had to be judged to be good enough to meet some standard, I would take that as a compliment and meaning that I have made it to being a very good photographer. Just keep patting yourself on your back - and then get back to taking more great photographs to put on that wall again. Good job and a job well done.

You might find this interesting. Your comments suggest you are on the right side of the curve: a true expert.

Congratulations. As I was hanging my first show, a lady came in an bought one of my "masterpieces". She said "The red in the photo matches my sofa." Bottom line: When somebody says something stupid about your photos, just smile.


That’s hilarious. I sold two so far and they were both bought by a friend of the gallery manager...not sure how to feel about that! Lol

Congratulations, great work. Hopefully someday in the future I'll have the courage that you have. Getting out there as hard, I'm glad you did, nice photos.

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! Be proud! You earned it and the photos and display look great!

If you don't promote yourself nobody else will. Carry on, and ignore the critics.
