Photographs twice the price of commissioned painting
I put a day's photography into a charity auction, and it was the highest price lot, making two or three times the price of paintings by competent artists - digital photography has come of age... and there are people out there that know it!
(...but the £200 price was less than half what you would have to pay to hire the kit,,, )
Re: Photographs twice the price of commissioned painting
$325, for a days worth of photography ... and a painter that'll auction off a piece of original art for 1/3 that ($100.) ? What's the world come to?
I can see someone jumping for the photography ... a nice set of family portraits ... very personal use compared to a painting.
Funny, I have auctioned off a family portrait setting for charity a number of times, and not one person followed up on it, yet paid for it. Odd.
What really used to move at charity events was B&W prints ... those always outsold everything else.
