Names on Sites and Saved Files

Postby KimVacc » Tue Mar 13, 2012 1:18 pm

I was told by another photographer to not name any pics that you upload on the web with someones name or last name because it will come up in an image search or someone could easily find out their name because of what it was saved as.....is this true?

Also, I was told to not post kids names on a gallery or blog entry...what are your thoughts about doing this? It seems like it will be hard to come up with a random title for all of the differenct galleries and blog entries. Thanks!

Seems reasonable, at least it checks out from a technical perspective.
I take pictures so quickly, my highschool was "Continuous High".
