Sometimes you gotta wing it. I'm still deciding if I want to do this HUGE wholesale trade show this summer but meanwhile I should apply. The application is quite brief and they want a photo of your booth. What do you you do if you've never had a real booth before? (I've done plenty of outside markets and smaller inside craft shows with my table but never needed/used a booth.) You could draw it or do a computer rendering but with so much riding on the image and so much competition for space, I wanted to do the absolute best I could do. So I bought a few more wood displays, I ordered 2 large photos of my work and tore apart the leaving room to have this corner space. I made sure to do this in the morning, when the light was coming in from 2 windows and I used some lamps for more light in the left front of the photo.
|Super pleased with how it came out and I think it conveys enough "boothness".|
|Behind the scenes - couches smooshed over to one side of the living room.|
So I added some stuff to the back wall and stood further back for the photo. I also didn't like how the banner looked so I used the text from it and added it to the wall in photoshop. I like how it looks like decals, and decals are often used on walls in booths. But after looking at the photo on my computer and getting more advice, it seemed I should move things around in the back and better space things out.More behind the scenes! Had to move the couches again, I'm standing over one of them!
A little close up shot, I nailed all the earring cards in place but they weren't hanging straight, a little double sided tape fixed that!
So that's it...just thought I'd share...hope everyone has a great weekend! It's gonna be in the 30's here!
