Lesson Learned (LL): Photo Title/Captions

Last night, Ginger and I with friends went on a tour and photoshoot in Mt. Dora to capture their town lighting displays celebrating Christmas. The event named Light Up Mt. Dora was beautiful and I used that event name as my photo caption. Today, I shared a photo on Facebook and my good friend Jennifer provided a pointed and positive comment: "Wow that’s a lot of lights, great composition to show it". This was followed by "the lights in the foreground look like curtains drawn back to show the view below...that’s what I see." Hmmm, very appropriate for anyone posting photos. Lesson: if captioning a photo, be sure the photo absolutely supports the caption and the caption supports photo so the viewer does not have to pause and consider both.
