    taking archery photographs

    Did a blog post about the AGB photography masterclass with Dean Alberga held at Lilleshall a couple of weeks ago (was nice to meet a few other AIUK-ers there too).

    Archery - Ten tips for taking great archery photographs - The Infinite Curve

    Enjoy.

    The photograph of the arrow on your blog front page is absolutely stunning.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work

    Thank you! Unfortunately I didn't take that one, I grabbed it (and tweaked it) from here:

    89.4.23 | Amazonian Museum Network

    Have taken a few other sets of archery photos which I am quite proud of, e.g. here and here, but I'm still an amateur photographer. Cheers.

    Top tips for using other people's (and institution's) photos on your sites are

    a. get permission.
    b. don't do it without permission.

    If you're serious about photography, you'll appreciate why this is right.

    I'm not very serious about photography, but I do appreciate this. I did give credit for where it came from on my Facebook page. But I didn't ask, no. If it is something on someone personal page (e.g. Flickr) I do ask (and have, many times), and 'specific' photos by individuals (as opposed to some gag picture already shared 200 times) get a credit and usually a link - unlike about 99% of blogs as far as I can make out.

    I agree that as a policy is not necessarily consistent, and if I was running a website that made any money at all things would be different. As it is, I believe I am covered by 'fair dealing' for a lot of things. I at least hope I keenly understand what that means as intended, I don't use it as a shield. Cheers.

    OK, great you ask permission of Flickr users but simply crediting and providing links back to the owner are not enough for the other cases. That, nor the excuse that everyone else is doing it will protect you if the owner (or any other holder of copyright) decides to object to your using their property.

    Bloggers/club site owners etc should be aware that photographers (or any owner of intellectual property) can pursue you in court for this kind of thing: doesn't matter if your site is commercial or otherwise. Whether they will is, of course, the risk you take. There are many cases where bloggers have been legally - and financially - wrung out.

    I apologise for diverting the thread - I was prompted by the exchange with Yew Selfbow above about 'grabbing' a picture and got a bit puckered.
