When I first started taking photography seriously (just over a year ago), protecting my photos online didn’t even cross my mind. I was excited if someone came to my blog and actually viewed one of my photos. Now, especially with Pinterest on the rise, I have been doing research on copyrighting photos and creating watermarks.
A Quick Copyright Lesson
Did you know that your photos are automatically copyrighted? That’s right. Thanks to the Berne Convention, you don’t need to put a “©” on your photos or have a unique watermark. You also don’t have to officially register them with them government in order to own your work. (Some people decide to register their copyrighted photos, because if they are stolen it’s easier to retrieve damages in court.) For more info, check out this article from Photosecrets.com.

This weekend I had the opportunity to go wedding dress shopping with my friend Lindsay and her family. I took some great photos of Lindsay in many different styles, but haven’t had a chance to show her the photos yet. So, I’m going to share with you some shots I took sans the bride-to-be.

I have a bad habit of taking photos at very inopportune times. I whip out my iPhone 4S while I’m in a moving car, behind a dirty windshield. Or at night, when the photo definitely won’t be clear. My mind’s eye imagines that the photo will come out crystal clear and exactly how I envision it.
As you might guess, this habit leaves me with quite a few photos for this “Mess-up Monday” series. Here’s a great example:
This post is part of my “Saturday Morning (or in this case evening) Musings” series and has nothing to do with photography. Don’t worry, more photography-related posts will be back next week.
The subtitle of this post should read, “From One Amateur to Another.” I ran my first half marathon last May (the Colorado Half Marathon), and am currently training for my second one (Horsetooth Half Marathon). While one race doesn’t make me an expert, it does give me enough experience to provide suggestions for newbies. Below are some tips I was given by others, plus some I made up all on my own.
