You should also decide if you’d like to have some personal information about yourself and your photo included in this elegant edition. Many readers have told us that one of the most interesting and enjoyable parts of the anthology is learning about the artists and the stories behind their photos. You may give the reader this added perspective about you and your photo by including this information in a special section of the anthology set aside for this purpose. Although we must charge a nominal fee for this service, you are under no obligation to include this information. Your photograph can be published without it if you wish.

Spring Portaits: Sarah

I uploaded all those pictures onto photobucket and it loaded them so I guess it works.
Anyways, it looks like "Something to do with each others blog names" is going to be our theme for this monthly post thing (monthly sounds good right?)
And its against the rules for us to all pick Nick's because his is the easiest and thats cheating xD
So how should we do this? I can draw names from a hat or something?

this is really starting to get on my nerves.

I took my little sister outside the other day, just before sunset so the lighting was awesome and we got some really cute shots. So I was going to post some of them today. And blogger STILL wont let me upload the photos. SO I dont know what blogger's problem is but its making me angry.

so i dunno.

AND 365ers should go comment and tell me what they they think of my ideas :)
Cuz only Nick has so far and theres two more of you out there somewhere xD

So these are the ideas I came up, lol. I know a poll would be easier but I came up with too many for a poll so you guys have to comment and let me know what you think :P

Black and White
Portrait - can be of anybody
Some emotion
Something to do with someone's blog name
Sunset - anything during sunset
Where you live (house, back yard, whatever)

I dont know.
Those are what I came up with and I really stink at narrowing stuff down x3
so let me know what you guys think please;

Whats in a name?

Cliche. lol. anywaysss

I was thinking about putting some kind of name on some of my better photos... especially since recently somebody asked me to use my photo for something. Soo... So since you project 365ers know how to do all that and I dont I thought I'd ask. x3

Do you just slap something on in paint?
Thats easy enough buuut then I have to come up with a name to put on them xD
I was thinking about using my blog name in it some how but "Cursed Photography" seems to be missing something.
I could always use my name but it doesnt really sound that great either.

so. meh. >_<

Actually for a moment I was considering Miley Photography x3 as a joke... because my baby brother calls me Miley. He cant quite pronounce Emily yet, but they have the same letters x3 he just mixed them up a little.

Anyways I was hoping somebody could give me some suggestions/help me out.

While I'm asking questions, does anybody know anything about copyrights? Somebody was asking me if I was going to put a copyright on my pictures but I dont know how that all works out >_< I could slap a (C) on there but that doesnt necessarily mean anything x3

So anyways, I think Im done, lol...
thanks guys
