In the chat room, most people will be more intereated to ask two questions;
What camera he uses?
What setting he uses?

A more relevant question I would ask would be: "Where can I get some 'cai tao '?"

Haha..this is precisely the attitude,the chinese mentality of one-up-manship thinking hardware is superior to artistic vision.Same like asking how much to charge for a photoshoot.While there is a
practical business costing many lose sight of the meaning and craft of photography.Like in Japan
it's cultural artisans and craftsman are respected for their lifetime of mastery of the various
trades like dyeing of fabrics,knife/sword making,wooden architecture, cooking and so on.

Although this french artist may be the rare one that made money but do remember he was once a strugling artist or at least started just like everyone else.It is also rare for a living artist
to be this successful so we can not take this as the norm.The problem here is that we are still in survival mode the government still echoing the perils of the rat race but at the same time wanting
now to promote art appreciation into the hdb heartlands because after spending millions on the Esplanade and restoring the national Museum,Victoria concert hall and Cityhall art museum it's actually trying from a economic perspective to create an art ecosystem.The important thing the government is also trying to do is to inculcate the appreciation of art into society so that we will
not be a souless people caring only about money.A distinguishing mark of uniqueness in all advanced countries.

Packaging, salesmanship.
Well, you can be the first photographer in Singapore in doing this, maybe you can be famous and make some dough for your Arts. :)

Just need to beat AVA, MOE and SPCA before they remove your subjects from sites.

Well I said it only in half-jest... at least two professional painters and a professional calligrapher (quite well regarded in SG) has told me the same (on separate occasions) - once you try to sell your art, you enter a market... and all the stuff of marketing kicks in - exposure, branding, packaging, clientele management etc.

Could try sunflowers even though it has been done before at least in a different medium..but just look at what it done to that guy. :think: :bsmilie:

Yeah if avant garde art world movers and shakers single you out then voila you are the next Andy Warhol or whatever...otherwise better be able to hustle!

At any rate personally I would prefer a UncleFai bird print to some stupid potato...much more class... :)
