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.

The Snake - Photography by +Bruce Omori  www.extremeexposure.com A river of molten pahoehoe snakes its way through an area that had been ravaged by lava 10 years ago, consuming vegetation that was just beginning to establish itself, as the flow front advances toward the sea. - Bruce Omori #volcano #lava #hawaii

Le Bleu Salt - Photography by +Peter Coskun  pjcphotography.com Here is an image I photographed last summer from the salt river. This evening looked as if the sky was going to fall and explode, however, it never did. It was still an evening which was enjoyed along the river. The dark dramatic clouds were worth getting out just to watch, and of course the maze of tubers and kayakers that made their way around the bend. I must confess something here though, I usually try to keep things were they appeared naturally, but after a little thinking and tinkering with the images, this idea brewed up in my head. This is a composite of two images, both taken the same day, within one minute of each other, and perhaps 10-15 feet apart. I loved the idea of the rapids leading to the golden peaks and dramatic sky, so I kept working with it and blended the two together to get the scene you see here. As an artist, I feel it is ok to take these artistic liberties to create the art I want to create. Anyways, hope you enjoy the image! - Peter Coskun

Pondering the calmness - Photography by +Mike Mackinven  www.facebook.com/mackphotographynz We are pretty lucky here in New Zealand, to just look up and see the wonder that is our Milky Way so clearly. So much to think about, so much to see. It's all just stardust and time. And being able to capture all this on a simple DSLR camera is just so rewarding. Staying curious is the key to capturing something unique and challenging.
But it's not as simple as just heading out and shooting, a fair amount of planning is involved. Would you like to learn how to plan, execute and edit a shot like this? Get in touch for details on a West Coast or Auckland Photography Workshop with us. - Mike Mackinven #astrophotography #milkyway #newzealand

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. Since I have a big passion for spiritual exploration through entheogens, I sporadically keep an online entheogen journal, Plant Teacher. I am known to be an internet junkie and a social media freak. 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. If you like the moon, check out my Moonipulations blog.
