The Right Way To Get A Professional Look On Your Photographs For North Scituate Rhode Island

Getting Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

Photography is a buyer's market. Digital photography has flooded the photography marketplace with an endless sea of photographers who would like to sell their work. This article seeks to teach you the way to begin selling your photography.

We see several of them, and pictures each day in connection with promotion. Photographs of beautiful landscapes which individuals cannot identify are not fascinating 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: Rarely do unless they know where the scene is buyers purchase a lovely photograph of a seashore scene. They would like to purchase local photographs of places that are local. They wish to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo which the buyer does not identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The first lesson to learn is to take pictures of local scenery. What are folks 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 wonderful. Don't forget, however, that youwill have to photograph that scene in a sense that they would not view as clear or common. Dress the scene up in beautiful light and make it dramatic.

If you intend on showing your work away, you must be pitiless. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your very best pictures and put them in one folder in your personal computer. Look through each image and ask yourself, 'Would this image 'wow' someone who saw it for the first time and who wasn't there to see the scene first hand?' In case the reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In the event the response is yes, then pick 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, so you will get responses that are conflicting, there are 10,000 other pictures to pick 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, and your photo club might be proud, but the typical small time art buyer only doesn't care. The fact remains that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and simply do not care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV, the purchaser simply doesn't care. The proof is in the pudding.

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

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The simple truth is the fact that the market is so saturated that it's extremely hard to sell. You have to go local to overcome the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
