i watermark all of my photos… and posting it first doesn’t stop other people from reposting it, i always post my photos on tumblr first.
even though i have a watermark people steal my photos.
if you love them why are you complaining… the hype is that people like and appreciate them.
weheartit is a totally different story. it’s practically theft. if i take a photo nobody should own the rights but me so it’s rude when people take your photo and repost them on tumblr or weheartit or instagram as their own without any credits.
and yes, it is photography.
