hey guys..i dont know if any of you have a lot of experience selling art etc...but there is a art show at the vet school and i have been wanting to enter one of my photos for a long time, but never got around to it. well i have until january to submit so here is the deal. they have to have a price tag, and i am in no way qualitfied to price this. i still have to get it framed too, so any ideas there would be good to. the other thing is, is that it needs a title. so i need some creative minds to help me:)
here is the pic..i had posted this a while back..it is my fav photo that i have taken:

Well, that is a very, very tough assignment!! Art is so difficult to price because it is purely subjective. Based on the local art that I see for sale in restaurants and other places I would say, with a really nice frame and mat you could get from $150 to $350 for it. depending on the finished size and frame. $250 seems about right to me.

The first photo is definitely my favorite as it shows all of the frog's face in detail.

Shop around! Find some art similar to yours and see what they are asking for their pictures. Also look for an art group or club and go to a meeting, ask someone there for assistance.
I only saw the second picture for some reason. I like that one. Is it a photo or a painting? You didn't say. I sell photos, mostly of flowers and, since I am a newby I charge $50 for 8x10s framed and $100 for 11x14s.
Good luck. Keep posting your pics...and let us know if they're online somewhere.

Ok...I got a title...don't laugh....

"Amphibious Whirl Pool"

Edit: Or maybe "Amphibian Whirl Pool" instead of Amphibious.......?

I am still trying to figure out how the photo worked...

Is the frog sitting on the leaf? If so, how did you get it to come out like that? Clear and blurry...far away and close...whatever.
COOL picture, but very confused.

I have NO input as to price or name...
I think Carrie's is pretty good...

Let us know what you decide on both....
Good luck...

Your pictures are very nice.  I love taking pictures and I was wondering what type of camera you used.

Thanks,

Jaimie,
I think it depends on the price of the other items. You are so GOOD. I just can't believe how great that photo is and I like the first one best. Last year I paid $75 in a silent auction for a matted 5x7 in an 8x10 frame. It was a simple mat from Hobby Lobby/Michaels and the photo was in a simple wood frame. Figure they framed the whole thing for about $10. (Unfortunately that was another casualty of Katrina) I would have paid more. Your photo is excellent! But you probably won't sell it for $300 if all the other art is priced at $50. I think you'll have to research the prices of the other stuff. I just love Carrie's name. Very good. You are so talented.
