Can I Take Your Order?

It makes me sad...

but I am going to have to start watermarking my photos in places where they can't be removed without destroying the picture via cropping.  Too many people are taking advantage of my work and cropping out my watermarks.  What is wrong with people?  I know imitation is the highest form of flattery, but theft is theft.

Didn't have the time or energy to shoot today... tomorrow for sure. Until then, here's an old image that I still love. :o)

Back to Business...

I am going to be shooting some photos today and hope to have them up later.  I got some new stuff - The Die-Ner and some new MH dolls so I'm excited to see what I can put together for some nice diorama shots.  I also have Heath and Abbey coming and I'm really excited about that - I am seeing some incredible shots of Heath.  He really looks to be an interesting doll.  Coming soon!

Well, there is yet another person stealing photos from Flickr members and claiming them as their own - this time on Instagram.  Here is the link:

 This girl is even going so far as disputing being called out and still claiming the images are her own.  Some of the images are from contacts of mine on Flickr and you can clearly see their existing watermark on the photos.  It is very easy to figure out when an image is stolen.  You can use reverse Google search and usually find the original image. 

As someone who collects dolls and takes great effort in setting up dioramas and photographs, this disappoints me in a way I can't fully describe.  If the girl who runs this account wants to post photos of dolls, she needs to get a camera and start taking pictures of her own.  Stealing them from real photographers - most of which are extremely talented and are obviously either creating custom one of a kind dolls and using expensive camera equipment -  is just immature and outright insulting to those of us who photograph dolls from our personal collections.

When I find people who do this, I will continue to post their links.  If they want attention, then they need to be called out for lying and stealing images that don't belong to them.

UPDATE:  Here is an account where she admits to stealing photographs:

What is wrong with this girl?

This series of Barbies are utterly gorgeous. The only one I didn't get was the one based on Van Gogh's "Starry Night". I just don't like blonde Barbie dolls all that much.

More older Barbie shots. I love these dolls... and I LOVE Star Trek.

Clawdia and Clawdette decided they don't need boys to enjoy a nice evening out at the Starlight Cafe.
