I was chatting with a lady from church talking about hobbies. I mentioned that I'm an amature photographer. Long story short somehow she talked me into donating some pieces for the art show the church is holding! Wtf I'm seriously only an armature like I'm a shutter bug that will take pics of everything. Oui. Is there anyway to back out of this gracefully?


***so I went looking through the most recent pictures that I have (I literally have five thousand pics on one hard drive) and picked just a couple of my favorites...when I get a little more indepth I will post some more please let me know what you think

As an amateur, you should be flattered. Pick a few of your faves and donate them.

Nope..your screwed!!! 

Just kidding...

My suggestion would be to take a couple of pics to her , show her...and tell her that you really are just an amateur and only do it for fun, and that you do not think anyone would purchase them...and you wouldn't be upset if she decided not to put any of your photography into the auction.

She wants to see them Thursday at the "artists" meeting. I don't think I can handle group rejection. Especially since all the other photographers that are donating are professionals (so I hear)

How about this...is it possible for you to post say...5 of your pics in here? I am sure us ladies can give you an honest (but not mean) outlook on your photos..you never know, you may be better than you think you are.
