Okay, guys. I need your advice. To quote my buddy and inspiring photography lover Robin at Bird Tweets, I need a photography secretary.
I'm taking so many photos (and a lot of them that I love) that it's hard keeping them all straight. And even harder to pick my favorites, which is where you guys come in.
I've had several people ask me lately about how, where they can buy prints of my work (and inside my little girl photographer is jumping up and down and clapping her hands in delight). So I need to figure out a way to do that.
But before I even go there, I need to start picking images to put on my Etsy shop, website, whatever--and I have no idea where to even start! I look at all of my photos and I love them all. I'm sitting here in total indecisiveness because there are a lot of images and I can't choose.
So here's where I need your help and there's something in it for you, too, besides my undying love and thanks. I am going to have a contest and some of you will get a print of my work.
Here's how it works:
1. Take a gander at my photos and choose three to five images that, if you were me, you'd think would be important to have in my new "shop." I realize this is no easy task, and yes, I am asking you to do my work for me. But perhaps it will be easier for you to sort the wheat from the chaff.
(Feel free to chose more images if you want. You can pick as many as you like...I just said three to five to get the ball rolling. And if you have ideas about categories, etc., please tell me.)
2. Send me an email with the Subject header "tangobaby contest" and in the email list your picks (please identify the images from either flickr, my photoblog or jpg magazine) AND your mailing address. Also tell me which photo you would like to get, if I pick your name.
Email address is tangobaby2 at gmail dot com.
3. Yes, this is a contest. I won't be able to send each of you a print, but to encourage lots of entries, I will add additional winners if I get lots of emails. I don't know exactly how that will work yet, but the winners will be chosen at random so anyone can win. Maybe I'll enlist The Boy to be my comely assistant and pick the names out of a top hat.
4. Contest ends at end of day Sunday, August 17. Please invite your friends and family to give me their opinions, too. Spread the word! Yay!

Thank you, friends! I can't wait to see what you guys pick!
