What Photographic Camera Attributes Are Good For Photography For Ringgold Georgia

Ways to Get Started in Landscape Photography and Selling Fine Art

Photography is a buyer's market. The photography marketplace has been flooded by digital photography with an endless ocean of photographers who wish to sell their work. This informative article seeks to teach you the best way to start selling your photography.

We see a lot of them, and photographs every day in connection with advertising. Photographs of gorgeous landscapes which folks cannot identify are not interesting 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: Infrequently do buyers purchase a wonderful photograph of a seashore scene unless they know where the scene is. They want to purchase local photographs of local areas. They wish 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 to learn would be to shoot photos 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 amazing. Don't forget, though, that you will need to photograph that scene in a way they wouldn't view as clear or ordinary. Dress up the scene in amazing light and also make it stunning.

You have to be ruthless, if you plan on showing away your work. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your very 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 answer is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the reply is yes, then choose 10 of your friends that have the least tact and ask them if they're 'wowed.' Photography is subjective, which means you will get conflicting responses, but it doesn't wow them, there are 10,000 other pictures to choose from. Including 'less-than-wow' images in your gallery will drag down the perceived worth of your art.

You might be proud of the technical perfection of your pictures, and your photo club might be proud, but the typical small-time art buyer only does not care. The truth is the fact that buyers buy whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply do not care if an image has technical imperfections. The buyer simply does not 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 local fine art photography? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can not find them, you aren't looking, because they are EVERYWHERE), placing your work in coffee shops for free to decorate their store and then have a decal on each image for people to buy, or submitting articles to your local newspaper with a link to your web site.

All the best in selling your fine art photography. The fact remains the fact that the marketplace is so saturated that it is amazingly hard to sell. You have to go local, to conquer the group. Make your town proud of your town.
