like I really want to practice drawing the plot of Pokemon White as if it were a manga just to get some practice (and it’d be fun)- and I wouldn’t have to try hard to create characters or anything cause they’re already created! But I don’t think i will-cause I’m lazy
I had a photoshoot with a friend of mine and it there was this one really great photo that everybody liked.I was a little bothered that she didn't credit me AT ALL (IDK if most people do or not but everyone else I've taken photos for have. Both the commissions and free ones.). So I commented on it saying it was taken by me (playfully of coarse). Another friend of ours commented about it. He said that he wanted to edit it and she is going to just let him without any of my consent. Then he said since it was bad quality (I used a really great SLR Camera which cost me $2000+) so he wants to re-create it by taking (with a cheap digital camera) with again no consent from me. I'm pretty mad now but since I'm naturally the bitchy type, if I say anything about it everybody would start saying I'm all mean and crap. Am I over reacting at all? What should I do?
I don’t think you’re over reacting at all, if you took the photo and spent time on it you deserve to be credited. Maybe it was a mistake not crediting you or maybe your friend didn’t realize how much you care about being part of the process but I don’t think talking to her about feeling a little left out of the decision making and process is going to do much harm- so long as you don’t blow up, just say gently that you feel like you deserve a little credit/ deserve more of a say- I mean you did take the photo. And about her other friend, I wouldn’t confront him about it, some people just have a different artistic view on things, I do think its pretty disrespectful asking to redo something that you started, Maybe you should talk to your friend and tell her that it bothers you a little (again gently-idk if your friend is sensitive or not) I wouldn’t tell her not to redo the photo, that’s her choice, just try to make it clear that next time you want to have more of a say
