Open Letter to Photographers on Google+

Most of you know me for sharing beautiful photographs. I am writing as there is something that’s been on my mind for some time now, the sensitive issue of Copyright Infringement - and I would really appreciate your feedback on this matter. 

Crediting respective photographers is something I take very seriously. That was one of the main reasons I started posting photographs, to try to set some kind of example and standard for sharing images via social media. I am happy with the success I’ve had, since I have a large following of photographers themselves who often send me their work and ask me to share it. I have more than 100K followers on Google+, 50K followers on Twitter, and 25K subscribers on Facebook. Most of my posts go viral. 

I do not use my social media stream to post commercial content, or to sell anything to anyone. I never claim to be a photographer and I always credit the respective photographers and provide the link to their website. 

In my personal experience, photographers are generally happy to have their work exposed to a bigger audience as long as they are properly credited. Unfortunately, the copyright laws on social media are very loosely defined, and the last thing I’d want is to be accused of copyright infringement.

I don't want to waste my time promoting photographers who don't want to be promoted. And more importantly, I don't want to offend anyone with my actions. I understand that an artist bares their soul when publishing to the world, and I also understand that a work of art can only gain value with more exposure. But in the end, there is such a fine line on the internet between promoting work and copyright. It would appear that even crediting all photographers there could always be someone who has a personal problem with how their work is promoted. 

I am hoping to initiate a discussion on this subject as I would really like your opinion on how you perceive the work that I have put into this hobby. Let me know whether you want me to share your photographs or not.

As mais lindas fotos de paisagens que já vi. É um lindo e altruísta trabalho a divulgação destas maravilhas que poderiam ficar restritas à admiração de poucos, não fosse você! Muitíssimo obrigado!

It is interesting to see a romantic woman who walks in a long white dress per mountainous highlands.

Slave's Edge - Photography by Janne Kahila by www.jkahilaphotography.com The Faroe islands was one of the most beautiful and unique locations I have ever visited. What made this place extra special is the small amount of tourists that have yet found the islands. During this easy few hours' hike on a rather clear day I only met two other people. Two!?! And this is a tourist destination by Faroese standards. I honestly think nowhere in the world does good infrastructure, beautiful scenery and feel of remoteness come together like they do in Faroe islands.
This picture features one of the most amazing sights in the islands with lake Sørvágsvatn floating 30m above sea level and cascading into the atlantic via a waterfall. And all of this can be seen from 140m tall vertical cliffs from where the slaves where once pushed over the edge. Hence the infamous nickname Slave's Edge.
This is as wide as my 16mm lens could go but I'm editing a massive panorama that shows the entire scene at once. I'll upload that one later but just a small spoiler: the scene is pretty awesome everywhere you look ;) - Janne Kahila

Introduction
I love social media. If you'd like to connect with me on other networks, feel free to do so: http://xeeme.com/opajdara

I am a writer; I wrote dozens of books for children, two plays and three books of poetry. As a blogger, I run with different things all the time. My very personal blog is Alienated Me.

Recently I started blogging about all kinds of things that interest me, and I am always on the lookout for new, original, innovative products and start-ups to feature on my Top 10 Lists blog.
