@shewolfnm,
You probably want to talk to Quinn / MassCass. She has made a book with her photos in Connecticut, just like the one you're talking about. She's not on A2K anymore, but I'll introduce you on Facebook if you aren't "Friends" there already.

@shewolfnm,
Great pictures! I had to restrict myself to voting up three. Otherwise I might just have voted up all of them.

One question: Do you have a particular target audience in mind for the book? People who like to look at New York pictures are not necessarily the same kind as people who like to look at little-children-pictures. Maybe it would make sense to pick one audience and stick to pictures specifically targeted to it. (Trying to speak in the most tentative language I can. I don't know much about the world of professional photography.)

***

Another possible alternative to restaurants: retirement homes. Back in my teens, when I was considering a carreer as a classical pianist, they proved a very grateful audience to play for. They might well be just as grateful an audience for your photography.

I was at a hospital with my son. On the walls in the admin area were variouse art works by local artists. For sale with a commision to the hospital. for whats its worth i didn't think much of the art works.

baby/small child photos in your maternity section might be worth a look, consider also prenatal clinics

What about those driving pictures when you went to see Dys and Diane? I really liked some of those.

Maybe instead of focusing on one type of photo in the book (kids), keep it very random yet connected. If that makes sense.
Like seeing all of you and not just a part.

@caribou,
I liked some of those driving photos too, as well as the portraits on that trip.

Don't know if you read my last post, shewolf. Anyway, besides the other places I've sold work, and the galleries where I sold my work, and the gallery where we gave solo shows to some photographers, I too have experience with a hospital and my art work. I donated a piece to a breast cancer center, and was later invited to small garden parties with quite select guest lists. The work was popular with patients, or so the staff told me, and was not for sale... at least back then (who knows about now), but in theory, the garden party I did go to was an opportunity, had I considered it that way.

@ossobuco,
Should I post them ?
I had not considered them but I could.

They were photos I did not think were that good.. until you understood how I took them.

My original idea was to make two books but I agree and have changed course to just one.

It does not matter how many you vote up.
I just want to see if there is a general.. pattern.. style.. or even color scheme that seems to attract the most attention.

@shewolfnm,
Yes. Post them.

I'm a toughie, but I want to look at them again. I think they are transient, but starters on observation, some wonderful. No, not classic photos, snaps of interest. You don't answer when I mention photographer names. This has been a few times, not an accusation, but you skip those posts. Have you looked at Alex Soth? Do you just snap away and not look at other photographers photos ever? You want to be pure?

Not saying that would be all bad, or bad at all, since you have a strong melange of instincts, just trying to understand.

@ossobuco,
I look at other photographers all the time.

And more often then not, I do not like them or their work.
Too often they lose their subject in pursuit of perfect rules of composition.
Their photos end up being.. static.. cookie cutter.. common.. maybe with exceptional tweaks in their exposure.

I can appreciate what they do. Perfect exposure is difficult.
But what common photographers do , I dont. And it isnt as if I think I am better than.. I just dont like what they do or what they produce.

but yes, I look around all the time. I get ideas from them and see what not to do .
I will also use their photos to google exposure techniques and styles.
