Extraordinary Digital Photography Advice For Kingston Utah

The best way to Get Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography marketplace has been flooded by digital photography with an endless ocean of photographers who would like to sell their work. This informative article attempts to teach you the best way to begin selling your photography.

We see photographs each day, and several of them in connection with promotion. Pictures of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify aren't interesting to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do unless they know where the scene is, buyers purchase a beautiful photograph of a seashore scene. They would like to purchase local photos of local areas. They would like to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo that the buyer doesn't identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The first lesson to learn would be to take pictures of local scene. What are people in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains surrounding the city? The pier heading out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something wonderful. Don't forget, though, that you will need to photograph that scene in ways they would not view as plain or normal. Dress up the scene in exquisite light and allow it to be spectacular.

You must be callous if you intend on showing your work off. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your very best images and put them in one folder on your own computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the first time and who was not there to see the scene first hand?' In case the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the reply is yes, then select 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, which means you will get responses that are inconsistent, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other images to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You may take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, as well as your photo club might be proud, but the average small time art buyer only does not care. The truth is the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply don't care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT, the purchaser simply doesn't care. The proof is in the pudding.

So where are you going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can not locate them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a decal on each image for folks to purchase, or submitting posts to your local paper with a link to your site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The truth is that the market is really saturated that it's extremely hard to sell. You must go local, to overcome the group. Make your town proud of your town.
