Is there a tag for "copy this photo look"?

I think the closest we have is reverse-engineering. Tag summary is: Analysis of an image to determine setup and techniques that could be used to achieve certain properties of the image. Downsides:...

Is there a tag for "copy this photo look"?

A lot of the questions we get - unfortunately many of them too broad & are soon closed - tend to start with the assumption that everything is a 'filter' as in a Snapchat/Instagram filter. ...

Can we stop accepting / burninate the [image] tag?

Okay, so I've removed image the tag from all questions a little bit at a time. It seems like most of the questions that had the tag suffered from similar problems: ...

Do we need a [client] tag?

The question certainly needed more/better tags, but I think the business and event-photography tags you added should be sufficient to help someone interested in photographers' clients find the ...

Can a moderator fix the "bellow" tag?

SE isn't supposed to allow you to add tags that differ only in pluralization, but it let me add bellows as a tag synonym, make it the "master" and retag a question, so I'll do the other 10 and see how ...

Create Tag Analogue

First, see British English vs. American English in tags — we've standardized on American English spelling for tags for consistency (but, we leave whatever variant the writer uses in titles, questions, ...

Create Tag Analogue

In photography, the term of art for that is film, which of course we have a tag for: film.

Can we change [camera-identification] to [equipment-identification]?

I think it is helpful to have distinct tags for camera identification and lens identification. There's no rule that says both such tags can't be attached to the same question when appropriate.

Tags specific to Geographical Locations

Hmm, that's a good question and I don't have a particularly firm answer. I would personally be resistant to the idea in most cases as it's generally possible to answer questions broadly. If there ...

Is the "hardware" tag useful? (And should we kill it?)

My suggestion: merge it into computer-hardware, and remove it from any questions where that doesn't apply.

Add special comment to the tags

I think this would be overkill. If people don't understand they shouldn't believe things they read on the Internet without verifying them, that's not a problem which is going to be solved by a ...

Cleaning up the "sync" tag

I propose to: Retag the questions about file synchronisation with a new file-sync tag. Retag the two questions about flash/shutter synchronisation with the existing sync-speed tag. Leave the ...

No nikon-d850 tag?

Tags are usually create as needed by editors with enough privilege (300 rep pts). I edited your post to create the nikon-d850 tag. I'm sure there are a few existing questions that can benefit from the ...

Add special comment to the tags

I think that is more a concern on law where there are lawyers on it. There is an implication that something a lawyer says might be legal advice, so it covers their rear to state it is not. As people ...

Do we need both [neutral-density] and [neutral-density-filter]?

I think a tag synonym makes sense. I'd say keep neutral-density-filter. If we kept neutral-density, then people would be tempted to tag questions with neutral-density and filter, which we're saying ...

Can we stop accepting / burninate the [image] tag?

It does seem very broad. The thing to do would be to go to each of the 43 questions and retag them (the first one I found had only one tag: [image]). Once the tag isn't in use in any questions I ...

Delete the "dell" tag?

I'd say if the questions actually are specific to photographic workflow with Dell monitors, leave the tag. If it's just kind of randomly attached because someone's monitor or computer happens to be ...

Saving the "filters" tag

First pitch: either app-filters or software-filters. I like [app-filters] because it's shorter, and frankly, 95% of the people who will be asking this will be ...

TL;DR: the tag should include the noun (i.e., [neutral-density-filter] or [nd-filter]) I believe tag ontologies should consist ...

Do we need both [neutral-density] and [neutral-density-filter]?

(Bit late to this party, but here's my 2p) I think a filters category is useful in it's own right without a need for having filter repeated in the tags. I don't think the repetition would present ...
