Tips On How To Acquire A Professional Look On Your Photo For Stony Fork North Carolina

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 article seeks to educate you on the best way to begin selling your photography.

We see pictures each day, and a lot of them in connection with marketing. Photos of gorgeous landscapes which people cannot identify aren't fascinating to buyers at an art fair. For instance, I live in Naples, Florida. I have been to tons of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Infrequently do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a beach scene unless they know where the scene is. They want to purchase local photographs of areas that are local. They want to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo that the buyer does not identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The very first lesson is to take photos of local scene. What are folks in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing the city? The pier going out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something beautiful. Remember, however, that you will need to photograph that scene in ways that they wouldn't view as plain or normal. Dress up the scene in delightful light and allow it to be sensational.

If you intend on showing off your work, you have to be callous. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your very best pictures and put them in one folder in your 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 the event the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. If the answer 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'll 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 value of your art.

You may be proud of the technical perfection of your images, and your photo club may be proud, but the average small-time art buyer merely does not care. The truth is that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as beautiful, and simply don't care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer simply doesn't care if you use a Canon Rebel XT or a 1D Mark IV. 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 (if you can't locate them, you aren't looking, because they're EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a decal on each image for people to purchase, or submitting posts to your local newspaper with a link to your site.

Good luck in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains the fact that the marketplace is really saturated that it's amazingly hard to sell. You must go local, to beat the group. Make your town proud of your town.
