I'm still trying to find and/or create 2 more images for IPC. I should have probably selected backup images before districts but I just couldn't think that far in advance. I'm having a complete creative block right now and it's annoying me.

Just want to air my frustrations.

Browse thru a Loan book or Showcase book for inspiration. Goto the ASP website and look thru the gallery.

Good luck! Been there, done that :)

..aaaannnddd, I *still* haven't decided. Only a few days left and I'm at a complete loss still. I may just use the two from districts, but I really didn't want to send those in. IDK, we shall see.

Amy,

I just posted on another thread, that I'm pushing that deadline too. I didn't send to districts (lots of reasons), but I promised myself, and Keith, that I'd enter this year, even if I don't really feel like they are merit worthy. I however have become my own worst critic, so maybe... Well, at least it will be a learning experience, right?!

I dropped the ball yet again, three year's running. I have switched from when I started competition and my focus is portraiture....and a lot more difficult than the other genres I had mastered before.

I'm way too late for prints and not willing to enter digitally so...going to AGAIN vow to start earlier for next year.

LINDA!!!! Shame on you! I may have to make it a mission to kick you in the behind to get you going next season!!

Amy, how did the ones from District score? I have sent ones that did not seal but came close and had them hang at National. Different panels see things different. SO unless they scored low 70's or you have found some new images I would send them to fill the case. WHat do you have to loose!

two images got seals, and the other two got a 78 & 77. I may just end up sending them in.

I have a maternity session on Sunday and I'm hoping to try to get something then. I'm going to try to redo an image I liked but it needed improving. We'll see. Nothin' like cutting it close, right!

Sarah, that may be JUST what I need! but a little earlier in the year? :)

Rick, it is too late by the time I choose, artwork, have printed and shipped...am going to take the plea that my husband has been ill and has pulled me away this past month from concentrating on competition.

IT'S NOT AN EXCUSE I should have started much earlier but this past month has been rather stressful. He had to go to western Kansas today, leave at 5 for a 9 am court appearance and I was not letting him go alone so..that took THIS day out of the studio line up!

Angela, I'm holding you to that! You can do it :)

I'm the same way though. I have a hard time seeing the worth in my images, if that makes sense.

So glad I'm not alone.
