Who doesn’t love photographs? The truth is, there is not a person alive that isn’t taken aback by looking at a photo that touches their soul. If you want to sell photographs for a living like I do, you have to learn how to find the right imagery to draw the audience in. A lot of people are more than happy to read my blog and even visit my website, perusing all of the different photographs available for sale there. However, the key is getting them to look at those pictures. While I make some of my money from monetizing my blog, I also like to make money from selling the photographs that I take. Therefore, I have to know how to get the audience to make that decision that they simply can’t live without that photograph.
The key is to take really good photographs that draw the largest possible audience in. Whatever you decide to photograph, you have to be sure that it is interesting and breathtaking at the same time. Be careful about the colors in the photographs and the way you that you let the light play with objects in the photo. All of this affects how many people are interested in buying that particular picture.
Without a doubt, one of the most important things you can do is be fearless. Don’t be scared to push the envelope and try new things. A lot of people are interested in something that is different. They don’t want the same photograph that everyone else has, they want something that is unique. Sometimes when you push the envelope, you fall flat on your face but other times you fly. The most important thing to remember is that if you don’t try, you’ll never know how it would have come out.
Making money off of photographs is something that I consider a gift and there are other people out there that feel the same way. If it has always been a dream of yours, pursue it. What are you waiting for? As long as you can find a way to draw the audience in, you will be able to find success. The best thing you can do is make the decision to try and then refuse to give up, no matter how long it takes.
