Copywriting photos

Recommended Posts

I have a pic I would like to share/post, but I really don't want to see it show up on someone's HSOforum some day. I once emailed some pics to a Canadian fishing outfitter I used, and he used them without permission in his brochures. I'm by no means an experienced photographer, but this one pic is really special to me.

So my question is, what do I need to do to "stamp" it so I can retain it as my own? Just insert some text over the photo?

Thanks.

You know, sorry I asked. I guess it really wont matter. It's really not that great I guess.

This photo was taken at 11:30 pm on June 9th about 150 miles NE of Winnepeg. I did not edit the photo at all. As far as the camera settings I couldn't tell you. I was just enjoying an evening by the fire with out a sound or care in the world. It was bright overcast night like none you'll see here in Minnesota. hembryocampfire.jpg

fishing, you can place text over it. That's what I do. But it just helps keep an honest person honest. If someone wants to pull an image off an online posting and use it for their own purposes, that's what they'll do.

You can pretty well prevent that by making the text so large across the photo that it would be a big pain to photoshop out, but then of course it makes the picture look bad, too.

It's a very nice picture, and I don't blame you for wanting to protect yourself.

For what it's worth, your photo is immediately copyrighted upon capture, but by registering it with the U.S. Copyright Office you can get more compensation if you sue someone for stealing it.

Thanks for your info. I knew you'd reply. Ya after thinking about it and comparing it to "real" photography such as your work, this really doesn't merit any worry over copywriting issues. Thanks for the kind words anyhoo. The photo isn't the quality that you guys get, but I've got a simple digital camera that works for me. I just thought the photo was kinda neat and people might like to see it. Sorry I thought I read that 800 horizontal works but it appears the standard 640 would have been better.

fishin, it's a photo that means a lot to you. That's all that really matters. No photo needs to be compared to others, IMO, because each stands on its own. Since you are pleased with it and it speaks to you, then you have satisfied the only one who is important in this.

    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
