is a powerful mental trigger that is part of human nature and if you can use that to your advantage you stand to gain huge leverage.
If there's less of something
humans want more of it. If there's nothing of something
humans want even more of it..
Yes, but you are missing something...Name Recognition..without that, you can have the best looking images in the world (Not talking wedding, portrait etc.), but without a recognizable name, you are price limited to what folks will pay for, scarcity or not. And for that, someone else has to build you up, get your name out there, make you and your art a wanted commodity. Someone in a position to be able to do that. Then you can start selling for thousands per image...(maybe one day..after I'm gone I'm sure...). When you start hearing someones name, what is the first thing generally you do...you look them up, find out more about them..maybe tell your friends....i.e you help to create more buzz..
You have your art in a gallery...which helps your sales tremendously...because someone else (the gallery) has created a buzz around your work..
