500 photos uploaded!

posted on 25th of may, 2015

Hello DT'ers

Finally reached the 500 photos uploaded mark! It took quite a long time to do this and I really hope it does not take as long for the next 500!

Most download file was this little guy:    

...nothing impressive but I got this little guy when I first got my D40X so long ago.
I just treated myself to a new camera since my tripod fell with my D300 ...smack!!! on the tile from 6'. Despite the damage I was able to still able to use it..(another story).

So what did I get??....D750!

Now newly inspired to get out there and take some pictures!! (Darn work keeps getting in the way!).

Well.....Happy Memorial Day to all of you! God Bless!

Congrats, Todd, on the milestone and the new camera! You'll have to post a D750 review here after you've used it for a while.

My Keyword Thoughts

posted on 28th of may, 2015

Hello Everyone!

Just want to start by saying I am no SEO expert by any means! But I do have an understanding of just how important keywording is.

However as I learned a great way for key wording in Lightroom that is going to save me a ton of time by the way!! (another story) I started to think about this:
Does anyone add their name as a keyword?

Now I know I am not famous or anything so it is unlikely that someone will search for me specifically ( I am talking more for Google searches rather than DT searches), however giving that people will NOT search for me specifically by my full name they may possibly search by just a first name...it is certainly possible that someone has the word Todd in their search!! I mean...there are billions of people that search the internet...

If you have few keywords and you get a hit on one of them it will be stronger than if you got a hit out of 100 keywords. On the other hand it is easier to get a hit if you have many keywords. This is the million dollar question. How to describe accurately in a few keywords a picture. The saying goes: A picture is worth a thousand words.

I have tons of bad keywords, trying to enumerate all the things in the picture, sky grass etc. when it is clear this is not the main subject. Also I am sure even if somebody is looking for sky and grass he will not pick those pictures.

Key wording is tricky and upon even more reading I need to clean my keywords up, for example i have been adding keywords for everything I can find in the photo which is wrong, they really should be about the main subject as well as the concept..that I am sure of. Example the photo above is sad, depressing and I want to relay that concept. I got a lot of work to do. Thank you all for your comments.
