One Way to Have a Great Weekend – My Way!

It’s been a busy weekend of editing photographs and creating new graphics. All whilst doing some gardening, so nothing happened as fast it could have done. Yet this is not what I had planned for the weekend …

I did have plans to build an eBay store. I saw last week (via someone on Facebook) that we can now build a “my ebay“. This is a great idea! I really should get this done. I have a tonne of stuff I want to sell, including camera bags and lenses. Over the next few nights, hopefully.

As usual, I got distracted by other ideas…

New Shirts

I always have ideas, many of them in progress as we speak! Here are four shirts I finally finished creating. Tell me if you like them … by buying them!

New Photographs

I’m always editing photographs. Thankfully it’s the number-one hobby of mine, plus I make a few extra dollars for my efforts. I currently have three months of photography shot at local attractions that are in various stages of editing. Now that I have a ‘Fine Art America’ account, I’ll be uploading much more photo artwork!

As I am still a Redbubble Addict, I uploaded a few new photographs…

More Graphics

The last thing I did for the weekend was create half-a-dozen graphics. These are for further promoting my redbubble gallery. Now that Redbubble have introduced the new ‘collections’ for categorising our artwork, I felt it was time to also show the world the varying mediums that my photography can be purchased upon. Here goes…

Laminated Photographs Photographs on Posters

Plus the digging in the garden, it has a been a fun weekend. What did you get up to?


13 Posters for Photo Exhibitions

Presenting my chosen photographs within my upcoming SALA exhibition is only half the effort. Printing will happen soon, the pieces have been chosen. Frames were purchased long ago, so mounting will happen within the next 4-6 weeks.

Right now I am designing the flyer for advertising and exhibition handout. I’m seriously considering designing the two as one, thereby reducing costs.

But I’m not having luck choosing a format. So I googled ‘photography gallery exhibition posters’ to get an idea of what could be possible. Wow! So many great results. Have a look at those that appealed to my eyes:

To save space, I’ve put them all onto one image, displayed below. See the full version via these links: #1 , #2 , #3 , #4 , #5 , #6 , #7 , #8 , #9 , #10 , #11 , #12.

12 Poster Designs for Photography Exhibitions

As you can see, there are a lot of different options and all of them with differing ideas on how to layout a poster for a photograph exhibition.

Now to design my own. Which will be the 13th poster in this article. Thus showing if anyone reads my articles or the titles thereof. ;))

Whilst searching I also found this upcoming book of 100 exhibition posters.
