Photography is like the weather. Someone likes rain, while the other is so enthusiastic about heat days. One may like portraits, and his/her friend at the same time loves collages. Can we suppose that everybody will surely like the summer breeze and the blue sky, or can we confirm that a documentary photo will be clearly defined as the best type of pictures?
First of all, you should exactly define what goals you are pursuing, when you decide to become a wedding photographer, and who a good wedding photographer really is. The fact is that even if you reach great heights in this area, it won’t guarantee that you will begin earning much money, will become very famous, or have a lot of customers. Experience shows that sometimes wedding photographers, who can hardly be called good ones, earn much money.

Recently we spoke about where you can and should post your photos and today we’re going to teach you how to do it correctly.

To watermark or not to watermark photos? This is an endless debate between photographers. Why do photographers use watermarks? Indeed, visual watermarks protect your ownership and copyright from online theft. In some instances, photographers use watermarks for self-promotion, recognition and advertising purposes.

It’s obvious however, that visual watermarks (like logos, large stamps or texts) carelessly placed, distract from the overall look and feel of a photo. When you see such a watermarked photo, all you think about is the watermark.
