As photographers we are always looking for people to discover our work. We love to show off our photos on platforms, blogs, and websites. But getting your photos noticed is harder than ever. So what can you do to make your photos stand out in a world swamped by images.
Make Sure Your Photography is Ready to Share
A lot of people rush getting their work out there even when they’re not ready yet. Remember that you need to have good images if you want to get noticed. If not just wait until the quality of your images improves. Otherwise viewers will just ignore them anyway.
Of course it doesn’t mean you have to create National Geographic quality photos all the time. The truth is that even simple images can get a lot of recognition.
What’s crucial is how you present your subject in the picture. Does the light illuminate your shot the way you want it. Does the photograph have a lot of visual interest. If so then don’t hesitate to share your work with the public.
Experiment with Photo Projects
If you think outside of the box with your work you increase your chances of getting noticed. That’s why you must strive to create something that’s both impressive and exciting.
Apart from showing people exciting photos you also get to show them your skills as a photographer. Teaching people how to take pictures in the most creative ways make people see you as an expert in the field.
Remember that when you share your work online your name will also be in the byline of the articles. That means people can learn more about your work. It’s a great way to add followers to your media and even gain new clients!
Run a Photography Blog
Do you want to get noticed more online. Then you should do some photography promotion via your photography blog.
With so many blogs out there why should you still consider making one? The main reason is that the more articles you publish the more chances people will find you online.
If you discuss interesting blog topics, your articles will show up a lot on and other search websites. In turn more people will end up discovering your website and your work.
It doesn’t need to be an all-encompassing photography blog that takes up all your time. It’s enough to share a few simple tutorials or even behind-the-scenes snapshots. As long as you think people can benefit from what you have to say then it’s worth sharing.
It may be hard to believe, but Expert Photography started as a simple blog a few years ago. By adding quality articles online we began to gain traction and is now one of the most successful photography websites.
Enter Photography Contests
Joining a photo contest is one of the ways to get noticed. You can see a whole range of competitions here and receive an update every time a new one starts.
There are so many contests out there that it’s challenging to choose which ones to consider. To help narrow down your options always go for the ones that fit your speciality. So don’t enter a wildlife photography contest if your expertise lies in portraiture.
