Protecting your photography-- The Watermark

Guess whos birthday it is!!!

Today we will be creating watermarks!

"The disadvantage of using a watermark is obvious. It introduces a distracting visual element that doesn't belong in an image. The effect of a watermark on an image ranges from mildly distracting at best, to ruinous at worst. When I see a photograph with a watermark, the watermark is almost invariably the first thing I look at. If it's large and obtrusive, it's also usually the last."- Photographer Don Peters

Learning Target for today--I can create a custom stamp in Photoshop that reflects my photography style .

Pros of Watermarks
  • Watermarking gives you exposure when photos are shared. As your name is on the image, people will know about you. 
  • Watermarking protects your work. People won’t be able to steal your work, as your name is on it. 
  • Watermarks can help you brand your company- People will start to recognize you by your logo

This is bad...
Cons of Watermarks
  • Watermarks can look ugly if done poorly
  • Watermarks can be distracting
  • The do's and don'ts  of the watermark >>Click HERE

Learning Target for today--I can create a custom stamp in Photoshop that reflects my photography style .

By the end of class tomorrow should have two watermark options to represent their photography.
-One watermark should be ONLY text
-One watermark should be Text and a Symbol
-Extra- create a third option.

Make sure your watermark looks classy in multiple colors and represents a "vibe" for your photography. Post your watermark on your blog AND share it on our Google Community..
Here are some of my watermark designs for my
Food Photography.
