Photography: Watermark or No Watermark



Hey everyone, welcome back to the 365 project. Today we are covering watermarks (basically a logo of sorts). Just as painters sign their canvas, photographers place watermarks on their photos. Though, a lot of amateur photographers want to protect their work with HUGE DISTRACTING look-at-me logos. It’s good to establish your brand, but it shouldn’t negatively affect the image. Of course most of us haven’t taken graphic design lessons, so it’s hard to say what makes a good watermark. My suggestion for you is to keep it simple, readable, and neutral in color. Especially if you are placing it on an image. Save the more elaborate logos for your website or advertisements. Let’s get into it and take a look at some great examples of horrible watermarks.
