Portrait Digital Photography Guidelines – A Sensible Way To Create Improved Photographs For Silverdale Pennsylvania

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

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography market with an endless sea 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 pictures each day, and lots of them in connection with marketing. Photos of beautiful landscapes which folks cannot identify aren't intriguing to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to heaps of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene unless they know where the scene is. They want to buy local photographs of local places. They wish 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 shoot pictures of local scenery. What are folks 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 amazing. Remember, however, that youare going to have to photograph that scene in ways they would not view as clear or ordinary. Dress the scene up in amazing light and also make it stunning.

Should you plan on showing your work off, you must be ruthless. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all your very best pictures and place 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 very first time and who was not there to see the scene first hand?' In case the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In the event the response is yes, then pick 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It does not wow them, although photography is subjective, so you will get inconsistent responses, there are 10,000 other pictures to select from. Including 'less-than-wow' pictures in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

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

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

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains that the market is so saturated it is amazingly hard to sell. You need to go local to defeat the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
