Creating From Home Part II: Hometown Pride



This is the second in a series of posts where I'll share photos "from the archives" that I've recently rediscovered.  Since I've been spending a lot of time at home lately, as most of you have too I imagine, I have been going through old photos to see what ones I may have overlooked in the past.  I know a lot of other photographers I follow on social media are doing the same thing.  I actually do this periodically when I don't have a lot of new photos to share, but this time I dug up so many that I decided to make a series of blog posts dedicated to them.  In this post I'll share some of my favorite photos taken in and around my hometown of Saratoga Springs, NY, that I dug up.  These are photos that I either never shared on social media or that have seen a significant re-edit since I last posted them.  You can read my previous installment, where I shared some old travel photos, here.

Creating From Home, Part I: Travel

10 Worst Excuses I've Gotten For Stealing My Photo



Essentially any photographer who shares their work online will eventually get their images stolen.  In the past I've written about copyright myths and truths.  Luckily for photographers, the law is on our side, and we can seek out damages for images that were used without our permission.  I use a service called Pixsy to do this.  With their team of attorneys and legal experts, they have successfully obtained hundreds of licensing fees for the unauthorized use of my photos.  Before I share these excuses, I want to clarify that I am talking about commercial and organizational use of my photos.  These are uses by businesses and institutions and not by individuals.  If someone uses my photo on their personal, non-commercial Facebook page and gives me credit, I don't care.  It's not something I charge money for.  I am also more forgiving of individuals not knowing the ins and outs of what's legal to share online than I am of businesses and organizations that have a responsibility to know better.  So, without further ado, here are the 10 worst excuses I've received for unauthorized commercial and organizational use of my photos:

My Favorite Panoramas, Part 2



Back in 2015, I published a post containing my top 10 panoramas.  Today I will share 10 more favorite panoramas with you.  The two main reasons I take panoramas are either I don't have a wide enough lens on my camera to capture the entire scene or I want to enhance the shallow depth of field. In each case, I will share some information about how I captured the panorama.
