Having A Pro Look In Your Landscape Photos For Ruby Virginia

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

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

We see a lot of them, and pictures daily in connection with advertising. Photographs of gorgeous landscapes which individuals cannot identify are not intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Rarely do buyers purchase a beautiful photograph of a beach scene where the scene is, unless they really know. They would like to purchase local photos of local areas. They wish to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo which the buyer doesn't identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The first lesson to learn is to shoot photos 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 beautiful. Don't forget, though, that youare going to need to photograph that scene in a way that they wouldn't view as plain or normal. Dress up the scene in exquisite light and make it spectacular.

You have to be ruthless should you intend on showing your work away. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your best pictures and place them in one folder on your computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the very first time and who was not there to see the scene first hand?' In the event the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. If the reply is yes, then choose 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, which means you will get inconsistent answers, there are 10,000 other images to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived value of your art.

You might 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 simply does not care. The simple truth is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and just do not care in case an image has technical imperfections. If you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT, the buyer only does not care. The evidence is in the pudding.

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

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The truth is that the market is so saturated that it is extraordinarily difficult to sell. To beat on the group, you must go local. Make your town proud of your town.
