Keywords – The Carl Seibert Series

The use of keywords is a tricky yet important step in a photographer’s workflow. It’s a big topic to cover, which is why we’re excited to have come across a three-part series on keywording in Photo Mechanic by Carl Seibert, a Photo Editor, and Principal at Carl Seibert Solutions.

Carl presents a great overview of the use of keywords in Photo Mechanic, how we benefit from them, and breaks down best practices for building a strong keywording strategy for your next photography project. Whether you’re new to keywords or are looking for a refresh, this is a must read (or watch – he also made videos!).

Links to each of Carl’s three posts are below. Enjoy!
