I've asked this before during a discussion and never created a discussion topic until now. I didn't get any replies so maybe this will. On my blog I simply ask. Why do you sign your photographs Though my blog allows me to be more winded and indepth with my question throwing in a reasonable argument for NOT doing it. I'm genuinely interested as the practice puzzles me because people who take holiday snaps don't do it and the people making money or defining photography don't do it but a lot of the photographers in between do do it. I'm wondering why. This is regarding online photography you'd find in forums or places like flickr. So tell me why.
