According to the Chicago Manual [14.235], information about paintings, photographs, sculptures, or other works of art can usually be presented in the text rather than in a note or bibliography. For your own photographs, it is sufficient to give just a credit line/ caption below the image. Captions give concise descriptions, explanations, or identify elements, depending on the type of photograph. Begin each caption with a figure number and in your text, refer to the particular figure as you introduce it, i.e. (see fig.1). While each lecturer may have a different preference for what information you will need for citing your own photographs, you can use this as a guide to create a caption.
