If you want to sell your house faster, paint it yellow, says Gerry Willis, anchor of CNN’s weekend business program, “Open House.” If you want to sell your travel photos to magazines faster, do these three things, from Professional Photographer Rich Wagner: ** 1. Get establishing shots. These are the wide, open spanning shots. They set the scene by showing the reader the whole picture. For example, before you take pictures of the food at a restaurant, get some shots of the building, both inside and out. ** 2. Get close-ups. Get the details. Take close-up shots of anything interesting, colorful, or unusual that you see around you. Magazine editors like to have a variety of close-ups and wide-open shots. ** 3. Get people. Who runs the place you’re photographing? What do they do there? Who eats there, goes there, or buys there? Answer these questions with photos. BONUS TIP: Take both horizontal and vertical shots of everything. Editors like options, so whenever you take a shot, just turn the camera, re-compose, and take it again the other way. If you set out to “tell a story” with your photos, you can package them together with an article… or better, yet, sell them as a photo essay. What that means is you sell a number of photos around a specific place or theme, and then write up two or three sentences about each shot. Magazine and newspaper editors love to run photo essays — and they’re a great way to break in and get published for the first time.
