Finding A Quality Look And Feel In Your Personal Landscape Pictures For Latrobe Pennsylvania

Getting Started in Selling Fine Art and Landscape Photography

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography marketplace has flooded with an endless ocean of photographers who wish to sell their work. This informative article seeks to teach you how to begin selling your photography.

We see pictures daily, and a lot of them in connection with marketing. Photographs of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do unless they know where the scene is, buyers purchase a beautiful photograph of a seashore scene. They would like to buy local photos of local places. 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 is to shoot photos of local scene. What are people in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains surrounding the city? The pier going out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something beautiful. Don't forget, however, that you will have to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as plain or average. Dress the scene up in amazing light and also make it remarkable.

If you intend on showing your work off, you need to be callous. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your best pictures 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 the event the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the answer is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, so you'll get inconsistent answers, but it does not wow them, there are 10,000 other images to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

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

So where are you really going to sell your fine art photography that is local? A couple of things you might try are art fairs ( in case you can't find them, you aren't appearing, because they are EVERYWHERE), putting your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their shop and then have a sticker on each image for individuals to purchase, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your website.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains that the market is so saturated that it is extraordinarily difficult to sell. To defeat on the group, you have to go local. Make your town proud of your town.
