Often as an amateur photographer I question my methods of taking photographs. Should I use JPEG, maybe RAW is better, does that work from a low angle, should I put something in the foreground. By questioning myself I hope to improve my skills and get the best photograph I can.
Now as my regular readers will know I have had trouble with my photographs being stolen, you can read about it here https://mikehardisty.wordpress.com/2012/01/10/no-more-cc-images/. Until the beginning of this year I was a supporter of Creative Commons Licensing but that changed after I found many of my photographs being used illegally in breach of my copyright and the terms of the CC License I had allocated.
For a while a used a great big watermark on my photographs but many of you said you didn’t like it and the watermark was just too distracting. So I decided to go with a frame round my photographs like the one you see in the image below.
As always though I continue to question myself, not only in the way that I take my photographs but also in the way I present them, to you, my readers. Heres the same photograph but this time without the frame…..
…..and this is where I need your help.
What works better for you. Do you like the photograph framed? Or do you prefer to see it without the frame?
I really would like your help with this so please take time to place a short comment at the end of this article, Even if it’s only the words Framed or Not Framed
