Selling Prints: Observations and AdviceArt in the Professions WeekSelling Prints: Observations and Advice by tiganusi
A lot of people think this is how print sales happen:
1. Join DeviantArt
2. Upload your first piece to DA with prints enabled
3. Log out
4. Come back an hour later
But, sadly, it's not that easy - like most social media platforms, DA is a site where you tend to get back a return (in this case, CASH MONEY!) proportionate to effort you put into getting your content seen. In this article I'll be focusing on marketing your prints, which is easier than you'd expect but requires you to think about four major questions: What are you going to sell? Who are you selling it to? Where will you sell it? And how will you get it seen? If you can think up good answers to these questions you can be as glittery as Big Ang in the above gif, or at least make a few extra bucks on the side.

In this article I will discuss several points, some a bit longer than others. They are Composition, Conditions, Equipment and Editing.
You might have seen a beautiful forest scene once, but noticed after taking a picture that it looks very different. A picture lacks the depth your eyes can see while walking in a forest. Which can result in a picture of just a flat bunch of trees.

Hello! My name is Ruth, though I am commonly known as kayaksailor on DeviantArt. I have been a photographer for most of my life, adding up to more than a half century of taking photos! I made the official switch from film to digital in May 2007 (about the same time as I joined DA) after getting my first dSLR, a Nikon D100, at a yard sale. As I am rather fond of flower gardens and the accompanying insects, those are my primary subjects and will be my examples for this article. Personal taste will dictate your scenes! Today's article will discuss some Depth of Field tips for Close-up flower photography!
First of all... What is a Close-up Photograph?

I really don't THANK for Faves/Llamas anymore. Due to health issues, I am no longer online anymore than an hour a day. With 3 accounts here, a few accounts on other sites...it's tiring.
So please don't be disappointed if I don't thank you. Or answer YOUR "Thank you" comments on my Profile Page. I may take a spin around YOUR gallery instead.
I think you'd like that better.
