If you are not a photographer but would like to use some great photographs for your fiber art, here is an inspiring website to visit. You may join the group and not worry about copyright laws when using the contributed photos. Visit the following link for more information: http://paintmyphoto.ning.com/
WHAT'S THE IDEA?
Very Simple, there are lots of great Photographers out there in internet land, and there are lots of Artists of all abilities who would like to paint from photographs. The problem is that Copyright law prevents this.
Paint My Photo (PMP) Is for the sharing of reference photos for creating derivative Artwork without copyright worries. Painting Photos has never been so much fun!
*** PLEASE READ THE LINES BELOW; VERY IMPORTANT!!! ***
****PLEASE ONLY PAINT DERIVATIVE WORKS FROM PHOTOGRAPHS-NOT FROM REPRODUCTIONS OF MEMBERS ARTWORK
Members may only share photographs 1) that they have taken themselves or 2) for which they have full copyright ownership.
Please only post paintings from photos sourced from this site, in the main Gallery. You may post your own Artwork in Groups and your Blog for discussion/critique.
