Hello all you beautiful people ,
*Sigh* , I just want to get this off my chest . I'm finding a lot of people on dA starting to copy my photographs .. and it's getting kind of annoying . At first I was like 'okay whatever it's gonna stop' . But .. I still find people taking my ideas and making it into their own photographs and taking credit for the idea . To be honest , I really wouldn't mind if people asked my permission beforehand . If you wanted to use my idea or a quote , then just comment on the picture and i'll be happy to let you use it . It may seem like nothing , but i'd really appreciate it when people ask me to use my ideas . Why ? Because it hurts me to come across some peoples pages and see my ideas amongst their gallery , and see them taking credit for it . For me , it's incredibly difficult coming up with different ideas every day , photographing them and editting them .. and having to go to school , work and revise for exams at the same time . Yes , I admit that sometimes I take inspiration from other pictures to create my own , but I always state that the idea or quote in the picture isn't my own .
So again , if you want to use my ideas just please ASK me . I'll most likey say yes , and i'd just really appreciate it , because what if the same happened to you ? You found someone taking your ideas and copying them into different photographs without you knowing . Thank you so much for reading , I love you all , take care ~ Erin .
