The titles of the photographs: some tips

We talked a lot about how to take pictures on the process, creativity, how to edit, how to share, but … take good care of our photos titles? not difficult to leave this section as in the background. Or last. And that just add a title at the time that the show, publish or share.
For we like upload your photos to Flickr, 500px, photoblog, … even Instagram, EyeEm or present a contest, is at this point that we care. Sometimes we can be very clear since we took the picture (or series of photos), but other times we spent just a split second, without taking it too seriously.
Pay careful attention to this aspect also. Not for nothing is the title that will have one of our photos, we have taken with care, with dedication, we have processed with inspiration … why not strive to put the best possible title?
Recall many photos, some iconic, others simply because we hit. Most likely we care to know more of them, the author, where they were taken … but also from its title. A good title can make that picture remains in the memory even more.
The title of a photograph must be a complement, an excerpt of what shows, what inspires you, or just a brief, straightforward explanation of the capture.
Choose a good title is essential if anything in those pictures that do not always understand without context. The title will help the viewer learn more about photography, broaden their understanding, that adds essential information.
When choosing a good title, it does not take an expert in letters. Just knowing how to choose a catchy title, hard, simple and brief. That will be remembered, which adds another element to captivate our attention.
As I say, no need to try to be very far-fetched, or the quintessence of creativity. If you prefer to choose descriptive titles, simple, they convey what is seen directly in the ground or in the scene, we can choose a short title, direct, but trying to avoid the obvious.
A descriptive title, at least, add a little more of what we want to show. Titles like "tree" does not add much, maybe something like "The lone cypress", for example. Unless we're a Andreas Gursky with pictorial titles. Valuing the usefulness of that information, to emphasize the subject. Another good example is the famous photo of McCurry "Afghan Girl" ("Afghan girl"), short, direct and descriptive. Also we value if it is interesting to note the location and time of capture (eg usual street photography, as usual Bruce Gilden)
Another good resource when searching title photos is a metaphor that describes the scene well. Sometimes we immediately springs to see the catch, but sometimes we try to find the idea we had in the head and we wanted to show, is a way of emphasizing the essence of the image.
A good metaphor or comparison is useful. For example a picture of a rainy scene can be titled "A sea of ​​tears" if the scene evokes melancholy, if water reflections appear as a sea dotted by raindrop … is just one example. We can also opt for an ironic or even sarcastic, always depending on each image and our style.
A good resource for owner is attempting to describe in a few words the feeling that causes our picture. That state of mind which can be seen in the scene, the color, the reason, the time, … a title that emphasizes the mood directly, is a good way to reinforce what the image conveys. Or else, the reaction we want to create in the viewer.
Let's resolve to find that point that we want to transmit or broadcast without falling into the overly descriptive, which is something that can be left to the tags you add in the metadata or the site where we share: Flickr, 500px, Google+, photoblog … .
As we see, there are many ways to deal with the way our photos holder. Effort is necessary, put effort, not satisfied with any title, a title search input, which complements well, reinforce the idea that visual …
We seek creativity when holder without falling into the excessive and contrived, is a good way to help our pictures stand out and be remembered. But mostly we do not fall in the "Untitled", mostly because it is the most used and we miss an excellent opportunity to enhance the look of our photography.

This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
