My outing at the county fair

my annual fair has come and gone Aug 1 thru Aug 6th.

I cleaned house again this year at the county fair.

12 blues, plus best of show. 5 reds, one white (third). and one no show.

I gave a portrait of one of the horse owners to them that I took last year. Also gave away a portrait of a friend's little girl and a teenage boy on a quad ATV tearing up ice on a lake this spring. all three were ecstatic to get a print, and I like doing that..

I entered 4 photos with people in it this year. A first for me to enter even one.

While I was at the fair I was hanging out by rides or carnival games with my camera and if a family or child came along that interested me I asked permission to photograph them, handed a business card and got their cell number on my phone so I could text them a link to their smart phone to retrieve the image(s)

out of 20 people I asked 19 said yes.. all seemed genuinely pleased.

I did this to work on my people skills. I dislike interacting with strangers and nothing like jumping right into it to work on phobias.

I processed their images first and texted them at a sane hour in the morning so I wouldn't wake anyone up. a few mentioned it was a nice surprise to wake up to...

As I get stronger and lose weight (I went on a next to no carb diet and have lost 45 pounds in 3 months - also managed to quit needing insulin) I want to start advertising for portraiture work. I've come full circle and realized there's no money in what I do for fun. Want to make some money gotta be for hire and fill a need. Landscapes and macro shots of flowers don't pay you for shooting them...

Congratulations on your success Loyd - both in the competition and the weight loss.
