    printing watermarks

    Need opinions -or what would you do?

    Remember my set of The Angels? Well if not dont worry. But a couple of absolute Die hard Fans contacted me and asked if they could buy some photos.
    My question is Do I leave a small watermark in the corner as a signiture or dont print it at all? I figured that it is a piece of art so therefore like an artist who has created a painting, he would sign his art work.

    What are your thoughts??

    Before I suggest anything re watermarks Danielle, the question needs to be asked if you have an agreement with said Angels as to whether you can actually commercially gain from the sale of their images?
    Generally that will involve model releases etc etc etc.

    I usually watermark my stuff with a small copyright signature and have done so after a couple of my photos were stolen and place on "Creationist" web sites indicating only their god could have created such beauty. Of course I am not a god and the problem is bigger when posting on line.

    Yes to adding your "signature" provided you keep it subtle and in an appropriate spot. Nothing worse than making the signature a dominant part which I have seen too often.

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    I would definately not put my watermark on sold images

    I have seen lots of people put a sticker or stamp on the back of the print

    Whether selling those prints is commercial use is a very complex issue. Depends on the t&c also.
