What keywords are best for my photo?

In choosing a keyword for your business, it is very important to put a little bit of  time and thought into your keywords. A rule of thumb: consider keywords that other users may be searching for. Also, think of similar words for your subject or concept. For example: 

Sean Pierce’s photo “Constellation Scorpio”

his keywords are:

night,  sky,  stars (similar words)

scorpio,  constellations,  enviromental, portrait (words other parties may be searching for based on his photo)
