Just came across your old posts on the early days of starting out selling prints. I'm considering the same after being impressed with finally printing, mounting and framing a small number of my better images to finish off a redecorated room - want to do all my rooms the same now s other prints can see the light of day! ;-) IMHO thought they looked at least as good as some of those seen at smaller stalls @ craft shows, or prints in places such as Cargo etc.
I think the comment that "joe-public" has a differnet taste and critique to images than from other photographers - via photo web sites such as this - is possibly true and interesting. Have you identified any popular images\subjects that are more succesful? Ones I had in mind and worked well when I mounted them were duo-tones of lanscapes and flowers as well as some abstracts.
Have any of you tried a stall at a craft show etc? If so, what's the basic cost?
Did you get any decent succes at car boot sales; sure one of you mentioned these? I normally attend one twice a year to "flog" unwanted stuff from the house after big tidy-ups. Was wondering whether to take a few prints next time.
What size prints and mounts are popular?
