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.

I would like to vote for “Beauty” photography, as someone who shoots Beauty on occasssion. In context, “Beauty Photography” is related to closeup of faces for makeup artistry and hair. “Beauty Photography showcases MUA and hair styling works.

Unless I overlooked, will you please add “Closeup/Macro Photography” to the category?

I’d be interested in seeing a History/Historical category - for photos of historical sites and objects, ancient monuments etc

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.
