Why I Use Watermarks...and Why Others Don't



In the world of photography, watermarks are somewhat controversial.  Some photographers swear by them, while others turn up their noses at them.  I'm in the former camp, however I'll state that I put a very small, partially translucent, and (I think) tasteful watermark on my photos.  I am not a fan of large watermarks that cover up most of the image (no offense to those that use them).  Obviously people that use those kind of watermarks are getting their images stolen a lot less often, but I think it severely detracts from people's enjoyment of your work, and when I share my work, I want people to enjoy it.  So here are the reasons why I use small watermarks as well as reasons why others don't use watermarks at all.  If you're not a photographer, this may help you understand the purpose of watermarks (beyond the obvious), and if you are one, maybe this will help you make up your mind about whether you should be using one or not.

Up, Up, and Away!



Last fall I won a hot air balloon ride in a silent auction at a charity event for Nipper Knolls Equine Center, where I volunteer.  I finally had the chance to take that balloon ride this past weekend.  Here are some of the photos I captured!

Ottawa Area Trip Part I: Visiting the Almanzo Wilder Farm



Well, one trip to Canada this summer just wasn't enough.  I had to go back, but this time to a region a little closer to home (read:  no air travel required!), the Ottawa area.  Now technically the Almanzo Wilder Farm is not really part of what most people consider to be the Ottawa area, but it was en route from where I live in Saratoga Springs, NY to Ottawa, and I've always wanted to visit.
