Away With The Clouds

By leahmakinphotography
Alot of people seem to be saying there not keen on the signature, the texture overlayed and alot of other things!
I always add a signature onto my photographs because not only do they get stolen alot, but I like if when the model uses my photo, they know who it is by, and more reasons than that.
Yes all the colours on some of the photos are washed out and have texture over it, if you look at the rest of the series tthey are all like this on purpose.
It's not only a tecnique I like, but what I had planned on for the photos.

Basically the photographs were suposted be showing death, dark, lonleyness, abandoment, contasrting with a beautiful girl. Also natural beuaty, hence why she is ust running free in the fields.

Fabulous shot.

Think the link to another site is a bit naughty and the autograph at this size not needed.

Having said that though, great image.

Nice work again. great post-processing and a strong composition. find the model's pose a bit disappointing here though. Her self-conscious smile gives away the presence of the photographer.

Great idea - but I agree with covey - signature not needed. I'm also a bit bothered by the brown blotches and lines in the clouds. Makes it look like a poor quality scan.

dump the sig...but it is very contrived.
I don't go with the photo's stolen angle I'm afraid. There are far more collectable and well known togs with their stuff unmarked on the net.

I think you have a bright future ahead of you leah. It's different, not your typical landscape or portrait.

The sig won't stop a dedicated thief. One sweep of the clone brush and it's gone. My feeling is why mark up your own images because of fools? You know it's yours, as does anyone with half a brain. When you get big and famous, it'll be even more obvious.
