Which I am realizing may be very little at this point. Or maybe I am just in that mood, because there is nothing like waking up at 6 in the morning to a criticizing email.
I posted these two pictures on my Facebook page and my instragram page. They were a hit on both. At least as much as they can be on Facebook. Facebook drives me up the wall and I try not to place too much stock in the like and reactions I get on there, but sometimes it is hard. Anyway, with that said-based off the response on both pages, I thought that they were good photos. Perfect? No, the beautiful Do Well Liberty is anything but a cooperative subject. Also, I’m still learning with the whole black background thing. So, are they flawless, no-but I thought that they were good.
Then this morning, one person’s opinion has me wondering. I woke up to an email asking me how much I charge for these photos, but also if they would all be blurry because ALL of my horse photos are. Yes, the email said all of my horse photos are blurry.
The person particular obsessed with the one above. And had to inform me multiple times that it was blurry and wanting to know why. Well, I didn’t realize that it was blurry. I thought that I had done pretty well at picking the best possible shots of her. And also, it is Libby so getting any perfect and flawless shot of her like playing Frogger and not getting hit by a car.
Anyway, I thought that I had done pretty well with these pictures and now all I see when I look at the top one is blur. I knew that it looked soft, but I thought that it was acceptable and now all I want to do is pretend it doesn’t exist (So yes, I post it here). Plus now I keep looking for the slightest bit of blur in all of my photos now.
I know that it is just one person’s opinion, but it doesn’t make it any easier. I was already struggling and stressed out, because I was accepted into the art show that I entered. I should be excited. I want to be excited, but I was already concerned that my photography wouldn’t sell…now, I’m even more worried that it won’t. I guess this is what happens when you wake up to those kind of emails at 6am.
With that said, I hope that you all at least like the photos. If not, it is okay.
Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
