How to Title a Photograph


Whether you're titling creative artwork or adding titles to albums or photos online, take inspiration from your photo's subject when looking for the best title. Your photos are just that -- yours -- so you'll know best how to title them. Trust your intuition and have fun.

What You See Is What You Get

  • Some of the world's most famous art photographers titled their photos after the subjects they photographed. Ansel Adams, one of history's preeminent landscape photographs, created works such as "Winter Sunrise, Sierra Nevada, Lone Pine" and "Mannequins, Movie Lot." If it inspires you, take a cue from your photo's subject, location, time of day or season. Use all or any of these for a simple, fail-proof title.

Abstract and First Impressions

  • If poetry's more your thing, choose a title that describes the feeling the photograph evokes in you, such as "Possibility" or "Adventure." You also could go with your first impressions. Look at the photograph for 10 seconds and write whatever comes to mind. Chances are, you'll be right on target.
