I just went to a couple photo galleries in Miami.(1st time there) I just wanted to see what people are buying and what they exposed and got out there completely surprised-embarrassed?- Idontkowwhatsgoigon-and many other many other things that really tell me that some of us (because I am sure I am not the only one) are losing what people wants( at least those who buy art.
well , the expo was about when a boy becomes a man( good theme) but most of the photo were very very bad. A couple of the pics were completely underxpose and w/o contrast othe was just a snap shot of water and other were very over exposed ( white clipping affecting the even the subject) and they were sellin for more that 1200 USD and some were sold already.
I definitely start to think That me ( which don't consider myself a pro or even a good photog) but some of you do are indeed awesome photog sometime want to achieve such a perfection and we are losing what people want( is the case that you want to sale art). I am not saying to stop perfecting your photo but just saying that people( with money) sometime dont want a perfect pic they just want to pay alot of money and to show it later.
I just found this comment from somebody else "Rule #1 to selling art: Price it high, and they will buy."
It seems its true..... and it works
