amateur watermarks

When i first began experimenting as a photographer, i didn’t have all of the pro-tools or skill in watermarking . I was afraid to put my images out there, and have them stolen or claimed by anyone else.

A friend of mine told me about watermarking my pictures, so guess what i did folks …… yes, shamefully i went to paint, and created a watermark .

Now i look back on these images and i am so upset that i did not Β research the proper way to watermark.
I watermarked these original images, so i can no longer use them as they are marked like this forever.

A couple of things to learn here;
1- RESEARCH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT YOUR CAMERA, FLASH, SETTINGS, WATERMARK, EDITING … please learn from my mistakes
2-DON’T WATERMARK ORIGINAL PHOTOS -ALWAYS MAKE A COPY
3- A watermark is suppose to be semi-see through ..its looks cleaner, more professional
