  • Learned that first 5 tags get most weight in zazzle. Also learned about Google Adwords Keyword Tool. Let's you see how different words rank in searches. Need to rework tags.
  • Watched Sunday wrap-up of CreativeLive workshop with Jasmine Star about wedding photography. I need a 3rd word! Cool, unusual, and …? It's what my photography is and perhaps, also who I am. Or at least a part of me through my photos. Defining the brand and what I'm looking for in every photograph. ”What are the three words that describe you, and your style?" "Are those three words describing you now? Or are those words describing what you want to be? If it’s the latter, you need to take a step back.”

    That 3rd word, maybe: curious. Or curiosity.

    What words come to mind when you look at my photographs?
  • Finished reading another issue of Popular Photography.
  • Listened to another GoingPro podcast.

What did you do to pursue the life you want this week?

  1. The word that comes to mind when I look at your photos is lines or angles or shapes or patterns .. It seems like there might be a quality that conveys the same thing but it's not coming to mind.

  2. Thanks very much for your feedback, Elizabeth. It's helpful to get an outside take.

    Geometric is what comes to mind from your words though that's not quite a quality either. Hmm. Order, perhaps. There could be something to that.

    What do you think your three words would be?

  3. I was pondering .. hence the reason I didn't list mine. ;)

    I still dunno .. maybe beauty, curious, and (unexpected or play or smile or ordinary, I'm torn ..).

  4. Tough to pin down, isn't it?

    Impressionistic, filtered, floral, canine, moments are words that come to mind for yours.
