I know this is the internet, and even worse it’s Tumblr, but fucking seriously?
The first image is my original photo shot on my 550D with a 50mm f1.8 lens in Sydney about 2 years ago, with my mate (now known as pup Turbo) as the subject.
I have enlarged my watermark to prove a point.
The second image is one I’ve found here posted by someone else
Why steal watermarked photos, crop out the watermark… THEN COMPLETELY CHANGE THE BACKGROUND? Then continue to fuck its shit up in the form of grossly enriched colour saturation and poor contrast adjustments?
Why go to so much effort to claim my content as your own?
Thanks to the other 90% who shared it (sans watermark) without trying to claim it as their own.
I, Adam/Fyro am the original owner of this entire photoset as theres about 10 other photos which are included with this one.
Thanks for reading my rant, keep sharing but credit the work and don’t steal it because plenty of people will call you out on it before I do.
a new 50mm lens came in today with a huge body cap!! It came attached to a nice yashica yf which was towards the end of life for rangefinders and hence the lens meant to be paired with it, the super yashinon 50/1,8 was also produced in relatively low numbers
i particularly like the shutter lever placement towards the rear of the body lending a good ergonomic grip compared to those usually placed at the top
