What Photographic Camera Capabilities Are Brilliant For Digital Photography For Norman North Carolina

How to Get 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 wish to sell their work. This article attempts to educate you on the way to start selling your photography.

We see lots of them, and photos each day in connection with promotion. Photographs of attractive landscapes which folks cannot identify are not interesting to buyers at an art fair. As an example, I live in Naples, Florida. I've been to dozens of art fairs and one thing rings true every time: Seldom do unless they really know where the scene is, buyers purchase a beautiful photograph of a beach scene. They would like to buy local photos of places that are local. They want to feel connected with the photograph. A 'generic' landscape photo which the buyer doesn't identify with might as well be a $2 poster at WalMart. The first lesson is to take photographs of local scene. What are folks 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 wonderful. Don't forget, however, that you will need to photograph that scene in a sense that they wouldn't view as plain or average. Dress up the scene in exquisite light and also make it stunning.

If you intend on showing away your work, you have to be callous. Be ruthless with yourself. Shoot all of your very best images and put them in one folder on 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 reply is no, then take it out of your art show. In case the response is yes, then pick 10 of your friends who possess the least tact and ask them if they are 'wowed.' It doesn't wow them, although photography is subjective, and that means you'll get conflicting answers, there are 10,000 other images 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 images, as well as your photo club may be proud, but the average small time art buyer just doesn't care. The fact remains that buyers purchase whatever strikes them as amazing, and simply do not care if an image has technical imperfections. The purchaser only 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 going to sell your local fine art photography? A couple of things you might try are art fairs (if you can not 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 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 simple truth is the fact that the marketplace is so saturated that it is extraordinarily hard to sell. You've got to go local, to beat the bunch. Make your town proud of your town.
