Upload & Sell: Off
Before I start, some of the things I say on this post are going to get some people's feathers ruffled, so please, don't get too bent out of shape.
I was discussing my website and images with a producer/pro-photographer friend of mine, and showed him some of my gallery images that will be on my site, on showing him my watermark, his response; "Get rid of the watermark, it is a sign of an amateur, embed your details in the metadata so it follows even if someone crops your photo."
(That was the first bit likely to garner some negativity on here)
I use Aperture on my Mac (That is the second) purely because most of my shots, I aim to get it right in the camera, and any modification outside of what Aperture can do, I don't want to explore too much because I don't see the beauty in my shots if they need too much work in post.
What are your views on this?
Thanks for your time, and please don't get too angry at my friend and his statement.
