Photo Tip #23...Tagging...

When posting photos to your favorite photo site like Flickr, or Picasa Web albums, make sure you tag your photos with key words that describe your photo. There are millions of people who browse these sites every day. Many businesses are now browsing these sites looking for shots to use in their publications. 

I've had several of my shots published by businesses, magazines, and newspapers who found one of my photos via Flickr. You never know which one they'll choose. They are usually never the ones I thought they'd pick.

This week, Charleston magazine asked to publish this shot. It's from a night when I was out to dinner with some great friends at a restaurant called "The Wreck." It's an awesome seafood restaurant with a cool boat dock outside. 

The key is...tag your photos!
