Marketing Considerations For A Juried Photography Art Show:The Judge   Leave a comment

Cameramotion of Neal Delano Martineau's Will you be my valentine E M J

Marketing becomes part of one’s photography whether one wants money, Fame, Recognition, or merely to share or show-off.  Right now, there’s submitting photodigitals for a juried Photography Art Show-Open.  But what’s the marketing in that-one might wonder. Juried means it’s reviewed by someone who is related to the Industry–someone who has been someone.  Yet, do they judge based on a universal/global standard or personal preference standards?  What is their background?  Do they prefer images along the line of what they do or can they get jealous and shun work similar to theirs or along the line of what they do?-Ernie Moore Jr.

If one is a category photographer it might be good.  I’d heard juried shows might  want cohesiveness.  How this matters: I entered the first photography show they had here.  Others were selected over me and even digitally altered works which I do not by definition accept/consider as Photography.  Four submissions, one photograph each…layered works consisting of several photo-images is a technique photographers might use -Orton-Effect sort of thing.  It becomes graphic design.  A graphic designer uses images-photographs to alter, in non-what-was-there ways. !!(Alert) [Rant]!!-Ernie Moore Jr.

My what I do shows what was there while the shutter was open for that one shot.  I think I take it to a not-too-seen before-level while staying Photography.  If Photography will accept digital non-camera processing not to include cropping and white balance or light filters (these can be done at a camera, pre-shot). And one can cut the edges off of a photograph/negative sort-of-thing.  I make no changes after the shutter closes.  And this is how it should be to call it Photography–pre shot or shot concurrent, yet Not post shot [cropping at worst-although with recent projects I might use Inkscape sort-of-thing to turn an image upright.  Where I would not use a slightly askew image even if there was otherwise perfect composition].   !!(Whew) [end Rant)!!-Ernie Moore Jr.

What’s good about a one category shooter is having images that feel as though they go together.  A Photographer with multi category style or varied technique images…Let me just talk about me.  I shoot sky, Nature, stop motion,camera motion, event, profile, reflections.  But which ones to choose.  So I’m saying from my first run at this I decided pick a style and you get picked because the judge can at least use several of your own works for a section that is similar.-Ernie Moore Jr.

This show was easier as I was prompted to enter by the artist who’s work I’d been camera motioning.  That would be easy except that Camera Motion Image Captures of different paintings can give a different vibe although it’s Camera Motion. [I suppose it’s my comprehending that Camera Motion Image Capture can have differing styles].  I looked-up the judge and will submit works along the studies I’ve seen the judge work-on.  Images I think will appeal to that person, given the work I’ve seen they do.-Ernie Moore Jr.

My Beliefs: Marketing Myself (Ernie Moore Jr.)   Leave a comment

Here is a look at my thinking on Marketing.  Asked to give a talk, it was decided the subject would be My Journey in Niche.  While not certified graphic artist nor paid marketer, I am allowed to and authority on My attempts and thoughts about marketing or the such.  Niche vid -Ernie Moore Jr.

Marketing Me When I Nor What I Do is New Under The Sun   Leave a comment

I presented someone with an alphabet.  Not only that but the half used eighty page spiral bound notebook in which I recorded how I went about it.  Perhaps that would be another web log from me.  I told the person I did it as a pick me-up for person.  I might not have started too close to the beginning but might have included the bare bones of Alphabet Declination-an alphabet formed from an idea or an item having symbols which corelate to English letters of the English Alphabet…writing English in symbols from an idea or item, figure or thought with different symbols than English letters.  That’s typography-a graphic art.  But Mine is the declination.  It’s actually a declining while advancing.  To me Language is not stand still except as Image Capture- for that moment.

Spoken English in the British colony, pet name- America, became southern English.  Southern English went to Economic divisions–rich southern and Poor Southern.  Negroes took Poor Southern to the North and Poor Southern became associated with Negroes and might have been referred to as Nigger talk /Nigger speak.  Segregated in the cities Poor Souther took on cultural and situational nuances becoming essentially a Negro speak. Negro speak is an evolving of the use of language and in England got known as cockney.   I still relate the development of English in the now United States of America by Negroes eventually increasingly widely termed Blacks (1964-1967) to the environment of the city-hence saying someone is country or from the city. What might be academically politically correctly called Ebonics Might better be called Urbanonics or Urbonics, because it is a referential and situational driven use of English But so was earlier English based on popular motifs and urgency.

When speaking, depending some on urgency one might speak faster.  In such cases clarity can diminish. what was a sentence can lose words and become a phrase.  Eventually becoming a word.  Words get shaved or lose defining edges.  As such I thought so of writing.

The person for whom I wrote the alphabet was a graphic designer and instructor of graphic design.  This is why I thought it might be a pick-me-up-because I thought someone who designs words might appreciate something like that, or at least the effort.  Person called what I did Art Brute-someone doing significant-ish efforts without formal training.  I came into Camera motion from trying to draw with light using a camera.  I had not heard of Michael Orton with the terming of Intentional camera motion.  Looking more there’s deliberate camera motion. and the term Image capture has been used.

I’m looking for  wording that is descriptive yet separate from what’s been done before that might get presumed as th quality of my work.  I feel I’ve gone some place different with the caliber of my works than that of professionals relevant to photography or the typicals producing motions captured as images in the camera.
