Should I do an attribution or my own photos?

    When I use my on photos, should I include an attribution.  Should I type in my own names as the source or leave it blank?

      I don't think it's required when it's your own photo, but I do it anyway....

      Hi Catherine,

      It's not required to publish on HubPages, but it's a good idea because it helps to establish trust with your readers and demonstrate that you are an expert with personal experience.

      It is also required in order to be eligible for some HubPages programs and contests.

    It's not required, but I also do anyway. How else is anyone going to know that you took the photo?  It is also a good place to place the copyright symbol.

    Hello Catherine,

    As a photographer myself, I definitely agree with Christy in this, especially because I use my own photographs within the blogs I create. It is a good way of getting your name out there, as well as shows your own creativity and talent.

    Be careful not to link too many times if you have your own photography site (i.e. don't link each photo, just write your name). If you do have a site, maybe leave it down at the end of the post in a "link" box.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
