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.

Sunfield - Photography by Quan Yuan bit.ly/quanyuan This is one of my favorite pictures from 2014. Sunflower is a beauty and what I have always wanted to shoot. I have seen many pictures of sunflowers, most of them with flowers in the foreground and sky in the back. But that's just not enough for me. I have visioned this view for a long time, nice cute sunflower at front, with nice warm sunstar light up the everything, and more important with a tree at the back in a distance, making you feel comfortable when you standing in the field just like you are communicating with mother nature deeply inside. And this perfect view just came to reality during a short trip last year. I can't believe I got everything I wanted in a nice afternoon. - Quan Yuan

Through The Darkness Comes Light - Photography by +Damian Mccudden facebook.com/Damian.Mccudden.Photography Buderim Forest Park, Australia. This image was taken back in 2014 and it’s probably my favourite waterfall image so I cropped this as a vertical image to try focus more on the amazing light and waterfalls.
Lately I’ve been going through older images and re-editing them to try improve on my post processing skills. - Damian McCudden

God's Finger - Photography by +Nicola Pirondini  www.facebook.com/nicola.pirondini.photography They call it the God's finger. My favourite peak in the dolomites, period. Its imposing shape is gold for my eyes, and being there at its feet while darkness was slowly falling on the place, was an experience like no other. Hope you enjoy my vision! - Nicola Pirondini  #mountains #sorapiss #sunset

Embrace - Photography by Erin Babnik www.erinbabnik.com When I saw the wonderful branches of this vine maple tree reaching out to me like so many furry arms, I felt quite welcome in the rainforest. This tree wanted a hug, and I was quite happy to oblige. I spent a lot of time that day wandering through the forest, petting moss clinging to the expressive branches and watching the sun play peekaboo through the forest canopy.
It had been a full year since I had explored a rainforest, and the last time that I did, I was so enchanted by the experience that I never even bothered to take my camera out of its bag. I had ventured into the Columbia River Gorge with a group of friends, and although we were all very serious photographers, only one of us made it out with a photo that day. That person was TJ Thorne, who plunged back into the forest determined to bag a shot long after the rest of us had retired to the car for refreshments and idle chit chat. When TJ reemerged, he gleefully produced his camera for us to see a shot on its LCD, and we all agreed that he had himself a real keeper.
For the next year, that photo served to remind me of the experience of communing with those charming trees with my friends, and I was eager to do it again. Only this time, I would not be able to relive the experience with the same group of friends. In the intervening months, one of them had succumbed to his battle with cancer. That day in the rainforest was the last that I would ever spend on a photography trip with him. Of course I never expected it at the time.
For some reason, I felt compelled to produce a companion piece to TJ’s shot from that memorable day, something that might help with the process of achieving closure after the death of my friend. I was traveling with different friends in a different rainforest in a different state, but the feeling was the same. It was a beautiful day, and the vine maples, true to form, wanted to hug. - Erin Babnik
