Copyright laws protect the rights of creators, but they’re not always easy to understand. This article will walk you through what you need to know about copyrighting your photos and how it can help keep your images safe from being used without permission or payment.
What Is Copyright?
Copyright is a form of protection grounded in the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976 for original works of authorship, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other types of intellectual works.
The copyright law generally gives the owner (called the “author” or “copyright holder”) exclusive rights to use and sell copies of the work. The law provides for penalties against anyone who infringes copyright. These include fines and imprisonment.
Copyright does not protect an idea, only the way that it is expressed. Copyright applies to both published and unpublished works. However, registration is a condition for obtaining certain remedies under the law. For example, if you want to bring a lawsuit against someone else for infringing your copyright, you must first register with the US Copyright Office (unless you live in one of those countries where treaty obligations require protection as soon as work is created). That makes sense because without knowing about something, you can’t do anything about it!
When Do I Need To Register?
Before “publishing” – meaning before sharing or selling any images online – we recommend registering all photos with the U.S. Copyrights Office ($55 per photo), regardless of whether they’re published.
You need to register before you can file a lawsuit for infringement, but there are other reasons why it makes sense too:

An artist’s ability to create images is usually judged by how well they can tell a story. Whether it be through the use of light, color, or movement, the images that are created should evoke emotion in the viewer and transport them to another place. The art of narrative photography takes this idea one step further – these photos document an event or experience so thoroughly that you feel like you were there yourself.
The following blog post will explain what narrative photography is and why it is becoming more popular in today’s society. It also includes tips on how to create your own narrative photographs using different types of cameras!
The history of photography
The history of photography dates back to 1839. This is when a French scientist, Louis Daguerre, managed to create a photographic plate that captured the image over a long exposure period using silver nitrate and mercury. He called this process “daguerreotype”.
However, the first photographic camera dates back to 1826. It was invented by Nicéphore Niépce who managed to capture an image using a primitive pinhole camera. This process is called “heliography” and it is considered as one of the earliest forms of photography in history.
What is narrative photography
Narrative photography is a form of artistic expression that creates a story through the use of photos.
A narrative photograph relies on context and emotional effect to evoke a reaction from the viewer. The goal of a narrative photographer is to create an emotional connection with the viewer by telling a story in each photo they take.
A good example of this type of photography is “The Kiss,” which was taken by Robert Doisneau in 1948. It depicts a couple kissing passionately in front of the Eiffel Tower, and it explores themes such as love, … Read the rest

In the world of digital photography, there are many different types of memory cards that have been developed for various purposes. Today we’re going to explore some of the most popular types and their uses so you’ll know what kind to get when you need one!
Different memory cards have been developed for various purposes. They are created to fill a variety of needs, including professional photography and video production. They have also been created to suit different kinds of devices – including smartphones, tablets, and cameras.
What Memory Cards Are Available?
CompactFlash cards are among the oldest commercially-available memory cards. They were developed in the 1990s by IBM and SanDisk, and are used mainly in digital still cameras. The card is electrically erasable but not physically. They’re bulky, take up a lot of space, and expensive to produce; they’re rarely seen outside Japan these days.
The SD card is a flash-based storage device for storing digital data including audio, video, photos, and text files. It was created in 1999 by Panasonic Corporation and SanDisk as an upgrade to the MMC (MultiMediaCard). The SD card is much smaller than the MMC card and has a similar capacity to CompactFlash cards. SD cards are used in many devices such as digital cameras, smartphones, tablets, and video game consoles.
Secure Digital High Capacity
A SDHC card was designed for the newest cameras and camcorders that take higher capacity memory cards. It is not backwards compatible with older devices.
Secure Digital High Capacity cards provide a nice performance boost in certain devices, including newer camcorders and cameras. SDHC is not backwards-compatible with older devices.
