Does anyone sell their prints? How much?
I had a man inquiring about one of my very old portraits - something I took in a 101 class. I agreed to sell him a print - but I have no idea how much I should charge.
I will be working on the photograph for a new print, so there will be a bit of labor for it. It will be printed digitally (from a negative), and will be larger than 8x10 (size hasn't been determined yet). It is black and white.
I have worked in studios before, where a 5x7 print would sell for up to $150, but I don't feel comfortable charging that much for this (I think the photograph is contrived and ill-composed, taken over 5 years ago). It will be my first personal print (as a piece of art) that I'll sell.
One other time I had a person wanting a print - and I quoted $500 for it (in hopes to scare them away because the negative was disgusting). They still wanted it. Pricing really throws me off!!
