|It took me HOURS to decide on this photo.|
Literally~ I've been at this since 8:00 pm and this post is getting ready to go live at 11:30 pm.
So here's what I had to do:
I need to provide a single product shot to use in the High Point Market Week Preview guide.
I needed something that could convey the "look" of Olde Tyme Marketplace.
I knew without a doubt that it had to be chippy AND white. But it also had to say
farmhouse, rustic,weathered, original finish, natural patina, industrial and architectural.
It had to make the readers want to see more.
Sometimes I make stuff just too dang hard.
I kept second guessing myself and thinking that it is soooo different from all the other submissions from last years Market Preview issue. Everything looks so professional and cutting edge and perfect. They all look great!
That's when the light bulb went off! It looks sooo different from the others! Yippee right?
Different is good.
Heck~ different can even be fantastic. So I hit submit button and fully expect a phone call sometime tomorrow from the preview rep asking me if I'm serious about using this photo. LOL! I guess we'll see what happens!
I am more than open to their assistance being a newbie at this.
I also had to add a short description to add under the photo. Here's what I went with:
Olde Tyme Marketplace
A rustic weathered collection of farmhouse, architectural and industrial pieces specializing in original finish.
Or something close to that.
Anyway, let's hope it brings um to the showroom!
I'll let you know if I get the call.
