Yeah but when the watermarks take too much from the photo it isn't worth looking at......There is one guy that treats his photos as BILLBOARDS ADVERTISING ALL HIS GREAT STUFF, DON'T MISS IT, CALL NOW, DVD's etc. His threads are simply spam advertising!
If a guy took a great shot of a boat, it would be priceless to the owner but not really worth much to the average observer.
Let me get this straight...
Because of a location of where my watermark is you consider it Spamming ?
I guess all of the others can have their logos on their images as long as it isn't in the middle and because of that you consider my watermark as spamming and their's not ?
You're probably right. Why waste my efforts in promoting the sport.
After all, who was it that shot towns and city locations at the race sites in Maryland ?
I guess I did this because I had nothing better to do...
Perhaps you may have saw the Soloman's Race program ???
yeah I know, it was all just Spam.....
Apparently that's the thanks some of us get....
VT is right, pick up yourself a camera and go promote the sport and all of the towns OPA visits... I am sure you would be good at it and you won't have to worry about watermarks.
Now you got some attitude !!!
I know that the incredible shots that I purchase from Tim ,Jay or Pete at a very very resonable price never show up with watermarks.
Try doing this to understand the time taken by the photographers.
Go take a pic of a moving boat.
Move the pic fom your camera and then crop it to what size and shape you want it, adjust the colour and then store it where you want it. Forget the time it takes to post it on here.
And then do it 4000 more times.
Why would you want a collection of photos of boats that aren't yours and how could you profit from that collection?
Fact is photography is your hobby and you are trying to make some money from it to cover some expenses, that in itself is fair enough, however you and certain other photogs put so much crap on your posted photos that they arent worth the time to look at because they are covered and surrounded with garish crap, between that and your insufferable panties always being in a bunch and complaining about everyone and everything, this isn't TimSharkeyonly.com. Don't try to blame me or any other person on this board because you cant make a living at your hobby.
As for Cambridge 2009 seems to me that another photog was invited as well, oh yea, he was riding on my boat ! after meeting both Shaun and Bruce and seeing the quality of their work, I have no problem promoting either of them.
