Photo Editor Maggie Soladay's Self-Promo Picks

Maggie Soladay takes photos of her favorite promos. Here's what she had to say about last Monday's batch:

The planets aligned Monday to deliver to me one of the tightest batches of photographer postcard promos in a while. I only received 6 postcards, but all 6 photographers made it onto my new photographer list. What I loved about the cards was the love the photographers showed for people and portraiture.

Every one of the photographers sent me postcards that alluded well to the work I was to see on their sites.  Most exceeded my expectations.  I laughed, entertained co-workers, and hung some of these on my wall (rather than send them right into the recycle bin). This batch of postcards were all beautiful, technically proficient, and showed originality.  I must say they look pretty good all together somehow too!
