Dammit, here we go again

Yesterday I found one of my VanCon 2010 photos of Jensen posted on Instagram with my watermark cropped off. Now keep in mind that the photo itself is square anyway, so there was no need to crop off my watermark to post it to Instagram. Anyway, I left a comment on the post about it being mine and the watermark being gone.

I then posted the issue to Twitter.

Today, I'm looking at Instagram, see that account and take another look and that post is totally gone! They never responded to my comment, just deleted the photo....which in my mind makes me out to be the bad guy. "How dare you complain about your watermark being cropped out! I won't post your photos anymore!" Really?!?

This is getting frustrating. I don't make my watermarks intrusive on my photos for a reason - I feel they'd detract from the beauty of the subject matter. But I'm seriously reconsidering taking more drastic action. I'm sick of this! Why is it so hard for people to give credit for things in this fandom anymore? Even if they didn't know who to credit...just say that in the post! Indicate that you at least are interested in finding out who to credit for the work! This is what I've done in the past. Because I want to give credit where it's due, even if I can't at the time I post something.

Maybe I'll have to start placing my watermark up by people's faces in con photos from now on. It sucks, but I've seen plenty of other photographers in the fandom doing it and now I know why. *sigh*
