Cover Photo

Shortly after publishing a collection of photos in the online Concord Magazine, the Editor of the New England Print & Publisher magazine contacted me to request that I submit some area photographs for the cover of the upcoming April 2006 edition.

Initially he suggested that I submit new photos of the Spring season, but when I shared some of my existing photos from last fall he latched on this night shot of Concord Center. He requested to crop it down to a vertical shot appropriate for the cover, so I agreed.

Embedding License in Digital Photo with XMP MetaDataThere was no monetary compensation for the use of my photo, although I'm quite happy with crossing the threshold from amateur to professional photographer. I released the photo under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. Here's how to embed license and copyright data into a digital photograph using XMP with Adobe Bridge or Adobe Photoshop CS2.

This photo was one of my three entries in a local photo contest in Concord.
