Hey you! I'm a novice photographer, I would appreciate your feedback


Recommended Posts

I've had the Alamy account for a while- I have sold a single photo which made my day! The 1 Dollar won't go far towards a new lens, but hey- I sold a photo!!!

 

I have no idea what a Keyword is on the search tags, and really don't know if I am using the site correctly-  please constructively critique my portfolio.

 

Thank you.

looks good. 

 

keyword = search tags.

 

there's a few photos captioned "Days out in London City " that have the same generic keywords with nothing to with the subject matter depicted in the photo. 

 

some tips: more specific keywords are better, and more descriptive captions are better. e.g. "heavy metal busker" is generic, but what if somebody was searching for that band by their name?

Hi Valentino,

Congrats on your first sale!!

 

Your photos look great, but your captions are far too short. Captions are searchable by clients, as well as keywords (tags).

 

Some links that may help you:
