What Digital Camera Properties Are Perfect For Photographs For Clermont New Jersey

Getting Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

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 educate you on the way to begin selling your photography.

We see a lot of them, and photos daily in connection with advertising. Photographs of gorgeous landscapes which folks cannot identify are not interesting to buyers at an art fair. For example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've 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 wonderful photograph of a seashore scene. They would like to purchase local photographs of local areas. 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 is to shoot photos of local scene. What are people in your town proud of? The beautiful mountains enclosing the city? The pier heading out into the bay? The downtown lights at Christmas time? Every town has something beautiful. Remember, however, that youare going to have to photograph that scene in a sense they would not view as plain or normal. Dress the scene up in lovely light and make it sensational.

If you plan on showing your work away, you have to be pitiless. Be ruthless with yourself. Take all of your very best pictures and place 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 was not there to see the scene first hand?' In case the answer is no, then take it out of your art show. If the response is yes, then select 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, and that means you will get contradictory responses, 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 could take pride in the technical perfection of your pictures, and your photo club may be proud, but the average small time art buyer merely does not care. The reality is that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and just don't care if an image has technical imperfections. If you use a 1D Mark IV or a Canon Rebel XT, the buyer only 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 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 individuals to buy, or submitting posts to your local newspaper with a link to your website.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains the fact that the market is so saturated that it's amazingly hard to sell. You've got to go local to conquer the group. Make your town proud of your town.
