Combining Photos and History

posted on 10th of august, 2016


I am often interested in the history of the location that I am photographing. By providing some context to the age of the building being photographed I can hopefully address the needs of some image purchasers that want a colorful image of a building over 150 years old. Simply showing the building without the context would not be as strong a download opportunity.

Great reflection, composition, sharpness and keywords are the essential foundation for good sales!

yes good point. and if I am photographing anything editorial, I also take a photo of the sign or placard that tells me more about the place for later reference!
keywords are important... give your buyer a reason to buy your image! Nicely done
