So, I accidentally removed this journal -_- Here it is again:


Even though it's not why I take my photos, I love it when people can use them as a reference. It's great to see what people can do! :heart: Unfortunately there have been some incidents that made me write this journal to clarify.

I don't mind my photos being used as a reference, if:

:bulletgreen: ...you give credit :)
:bulletgreen: ...you ask me for permission first, when you want to use your picture for commercial ends.
:bulletgreen: ...you ask me first, if you change the subject a lot: I really don't mind in nearly all cases. But to avoid some obviously odd things I still need to add this to the rules.
:bulletred: ...using a picture as a reference means you did make everything in your picture yourself. If you'd just smudge my photo that is photomanipulation, and I do not give permission for that.

That'd be it! Not a rule, but if you do use my photo as a reference, I'd love to see it :boing:

would it be alright if I used some of your photos for reference in sketches?  I'm not very good when it comes to drawing nature and maybe using some of your photos could help.

Hello there,
Would I be able to use your images as wedding backdrops if I was to give you credit on my website?

Look forward to hearing from you soon.
Cheers
Tania

So as long as I credit you, which I definitely will, I may use your photographs as reference in my drawings?

(By the way, I will never get over how absolutely gorgeous your photographs are!)

If you want to use the photo as a reference for a drawing yes, if you mean using the photo itself in a manipulation, no :)

I would assume so. You aren't changing it and you aren't claiming it as your own.

Hey! I'm sorry for my late reply, I didn't see your comment before! Yes that is fine, as long as it's for your own use and you wouldn't spread them as backgrounds for others to use :)

I use many photographs for my work. Taking the perspective, colors or location. You could use them? Always putting a link and avatar in the descriptions.:) (Smile)

Seems pretty straightforward to me.  Now, if people would only honor those rules...  :-P
