Nice tilt-shift effects there I just added you. In case someone wants to follow me too my username there is cat_in_the_hat (sorry about all those underscores, it is crappy to type, or just look up Sven, I am somewhere in his contacts ) I just have to get used to the fact that I can make nice pictures on the go. Here are a few of mine...the first two were taken at the Donaukanal in Vienna, awesome street art site in town, the last one I took only 6 weeks ago in my hometown of Innsbruck. Snow in May!

We love Instagram, perfect to share works by all of our artists! Beals & Abbate Fine Art (bealsandabbate) also check out Frank Gonzales posting works in progress on his Instagram account. Some pieces are very affordable, smaller works that don't make the gallery and sell fast.
Instagram has helped gallery sales, our collectors follow to see the works first, along with our twitter & Facebook followers. It's amazing how social media has changed the dynamic of sales in our business. We continue to advertise in fine art magazines successfully and often try most mediums of promoting our artists.
Yet, frankly, sharing images online is easy from the gallery's marketing stand point. Creating them is much more of a process, so we encourage our collectors to follow the artists' blogs, social networking sites and photo sharing accounts to experience a much more 'open studio' viewing than a promotional advertisement one. Of course, we appreciate all the followers and selling art is what we do for our artists... And ourselves. Instagram is a fun way to share the artists' images, collected or not.
