    Can I rant for a minute about cheesy, inane, inappropriate, shallow, misplaced, stupid, conventional, forced, boring, and otherwise meaningless titles that people give to their photographs?

    STOP DOING THAT.

    If you disagree with me, you're one of them.

    Thank you. That is all.

    I don't disagree, but give us an example of a cheesy title versus a better title.

    I'm not gonna call anyone out.

    You know who you are.

    On second thought, I hope that you don't.

    LOL that's hilarious, I feel the same way and never name my shots other than "Bridge" or just naming the subject. Good stuff. People have an endless ability to be cheesy.

    I usually use numbers, song titles/lyrics of whatever I'm listening to, or whatever first pops into my head. I've really never 'titled' my pictures though. You just have to put something when uploading to DA/Flickr.

    Years ago.. I did exactly that... name my photos. Several years later, I looked back at my albums and realized the cheezy titles. Yuck.. don't do it anymore...

    The photo should stand on its own.....

    Examples would be good, you don't need to call any one out, they're easy enough to make up.

    any who I am one of them simply because I suck ass when it comes to thinking of names for photos, I just draw a blank when I really need somthing. I can't runaround and call every thing "untitled" that would be bad on a couple diffrent levels along with just being confusing. If you have input on how to name photos, I'm all ears.

    If they're easy enough to make up then I'm sure you have a few milling around in your head. Don't use them.

    WINNER!!! OF THE MOST POINTLESS THREAD ON TPF

    I disagree with you.
    I don't title about 99% of my photos.
    So how can I be one of them?
    yawn......

    i hardly can ever be bothered to think of a name... other one which states what is in the picture.

    an image which shows a spoon, could be called "spoon"
