Plagerism
How does plagarism impact on phography?.

I've seen a phograph of a sunset. I'm pretty sure it's not plagarism if I shoot a sunset as well. Not even from the same location..

I 've seen a cool photo shot through a bundle of drinking straws twisted slightly. There is no motive as such, it's the way the light plays in the straws..

If I do the same, is it plagarism?.

You are only violating copyright laws if you use an exact copy of the photographers work without permission. If you simply duplicate the shot by taking your own picture of whatever the subject may be then all is good..

Not necessarily true..

Well, that was as clear as ink..

Lets say I shot through a bundle of twisted straws, entered a contest and won.Would that be unethical?.

Let's say your a university student and are taking class in photoraphy. Your professor assigns you a project and the twisted straws just seems to fit. If you reproduce the shot pretty much as you saw it then that's plagerism. It's like copying a paragraph from someone without attributing it to that author..

However, if you take the same set of straws and experiment and work with different light and angles and end up with a picture that started with the other guys idea but got something different, that's unique to you......that's OK..

As a forinstance, I saw in a magazine a picture of water drops on a plant, but in each waterdrop there was an image of a frog. The way it's done is you put a picture of a frog in the background that is out of the field of the lens as well as out of the DOF. Each drop acts like a magnifying lens relaying the picture..

Now if I reproduce the frog and waterdrop picture it's plagerism. But if I use the same technique and have roses in the waterdrops or anything else, it's just using a technique that I know to make an effect that I desire. It's derivative but not plagerism.A member of the rabble in good standing...

I was >< *that* close to posting a similar reply - I'd even thought of saying "feel free to plagiarise my spelling". But I didn't and now I'm glad, because yours ended up being funnier ..

Sorry for the delayed follow up. I've been on vacation in Italy..

Thank you all for your enlightenment. You are truly all paragons of lucidity..

I even learned to spell the word plaigar - plagais - oh what the heck - who cares now I know what to do - or not..
