Jenna Martin is usually on an insomniac bender, as she puts it, when she starts to see things. The mind starts to do crazy things when it is deprived of sleep.
“Your reality and dream world start blending together,” says Jenna. “Your mind just goes to weird places. You go to this point where you start to see things from third person.”
And in this place, Jenna finds her inspiration for her art that combines subconscious with reality and “a little bit of fantasy and a little bit of reality.”
“I call it Surrealist Photography. I just created a name for it. I found out later it was called Fine Art Photography,” she says.
In this episode of Shutterbug Life, we talk with Jenna Martin about her Surrealist Art Photography. Here are just some of the things we learn:
- How she found her photography passion in compositing images;
- What is her process for transforming her ideas into art;
- An example of how she created the needle fashion piece (shown on this page);
- How she decides on a pricing structure that works;
- Why and how she uses editions for the pieces she sells;
- Why and how she uses galleries almost exclusively to sell her art;
- How she promotes her work and finds clients;
- How you choose the right gallery and structure the contract;
- How she avoids the scammers who steal art from photographers; and
- How she can make up to $20,000 from one photograph.
