    I don't see anything wrong with putting your name against the work somehow. Do you mean by way of watermark, or how?

    I'd watermark each image so if they use them anywhere else you keep the credits

    I won't disagree about watermarking, though it may depend on how they're presented on the website. They may be happy to credit you in some way ( like a newspaper that has "photo by Jim xxx"). You may be happy to suggest that they can use the photos only on the website, any other use has to be negotiated.
    You're photography will get better and you now have contact with the Council that may offer some avenues in the future.
    The Mayor may not be the Mayor after this weekend, but he is a man worth developing a relationship with. He is a good man as far as I know.

    Definitely watermark the images if you are not being paid to NOT have them on the photos.

    However, i do hope this presentation does not have any words written by you, unless you get someone to go through it and correct your spelling and grammar!
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    If they want to use them p, get them to sign a release where they credit you for any images they use.

    Sorry, just need to check something - I get the sense that you put together this presentation for a meeting. You need to make sure your employer doesn't own the content before putting your name on anything

    If you read the OP it is a TAFE project done in his own time.

    It was a TAFE thing however i did most of it in my own time and id only add the watermark or what ever to the photos I took and probably one at the end saying i made it and now i have to do more work to it now cause they want it as a video oh and im not getting paid to do this but lets hope it leads to some paid work

    Look the issue could be more complex, as the entire issue of copyright etc could be complicated by the fact that some of the work may have been done under the direction of the TAFE course.

    But I would support what Kym has suggested and that is to put a name/watermark on all of the images - plus a final screen shot which should include your contact details.

    Also I would add that I'm afraid that the experienced part of me would say is that it might not lead to paid work, but in all honesty you never know it could. Having said that exposure doesnt pay the bills and it might be worth asking to see if they are prepared to pay for the use of it and the images.

    In the camera's menu system, there is an option to add a comment to each image.
    Use this to add copyright info. The menu item you want to look for is the Spanner called SETUP MENU.
    While some knowledgeable folks can bypass this info and delve into the exif to change it, casual image thieves may not know about it.

    I'm not sure if this is added into the D3100's images as copyright info, as some higher end Nikon camera's have a dedicated copyright info area(as well as image commenting) for photographer copyright data.

    Another alternative is to set whatever software you use to download the images to add copyright info into each image as they're transferred onto the computer.
    Nikon D800E, D300, D70s
    {Nikon} -> 50/1.2 : 500/8(CPU'd) : 105/2.8VR Micro : 180/2.8ais : 105mm f/1.8ais : 24mm/2ais
    {Sigma}; ->10-20/4-5.6 : 50/1.4 : 12-24/4.5-5.6II : 150-600mm|S
    {Tamron}; -> 17-50/2.8 : 28-75/2.8 : 70-200/2.8 : 300/2.8 SP MF : 24-70/2.8VC

    Thanks William!

    BTW: I would think Jim still owns the © to his own work product in a Tafe/UNI course
    Eg. A Phd thesis is © to the author http://sydney.edu.au/copyright/students/research.shtml

    In relation to copyright issue- a teacher dosn't own anything that is done on a department computer or that is done for their class. When push comes to shove this even includes work done in the holidays as this is still paid time.

    Just my 5c worth.

    And I also thought (IMO) a thesis is different to any other work that is done by a student as it is considered their "published work".

    Cheers

    I didn't realize this was for a course you were doing, for some reason I interpreted it as something you did for your employer - understood
