Photograph Categories & Category Feeds#4

We’re finalizing our list of Categories for the coming launch and wanted to share the list for feedback. We’re purposefully keeping the list tight for the first release — we figure it’s easier to add more later as the feature evolves than it will be to remove a Category later.

Definitely in:

  • Abstract
  • Aerial
  • Architecture
  • Black & White
  • Family
  • Fashion
  • Food
  • Film
  • Landscape
  • Live
  • Macro
  • Nature
  • Night
  • Portrait
  • Still Life
  • Street
  • Sports
  • Travel
  • Wedding
  • Wildlife

On the fence and why:

  • Beauty
    • Not specific enough. If it’s for portraits, could be could be Portraits or Fashion. If it’s about the natural world, will fit under Nature or Landscapes.
  • Banal
    • We love this type of photograph, but not sure it’s a big enough draw for a category and could easily fit into Still Life/Street/Abstract etc.
  • Instant
    • Instant forever, but also it’s a type of film and not sure the demand is big enough for it’s own category. You tell us.

Are we missing any?

I personally would love to browse an entirely randomized grid or list of photos from folks I don’t follow rather than focus so heavily on their faces and names first.

I’d rather see more imagery.

For cats: maybe add astrology

One of the things i am missing, is how we are suppose to share our work? What is used as tags? #? @? mentioning others etc like instagram or just scroll through all the accounts out there, to find your best match?

I support Banal as a category. Much of what I do would fit there. It’s a genre I happen to appreciate.

Event photography? Music photography?

Good start but … now when I look at the Landscape category there where the central focus of the photograph is clearly NOT landscape but mostly naked women.

@Khürt Williams there were like 2-3 accounts with that in landscape category. I just blocked them.

@Kuzemchik yeah. I did the same. Hopefully this doen’t become a norm.
