The CASE act

There are many people, perhaps all of us, which grab images online to use without asking for permission or purchasing a license. Because the intended usage will be non-commercial, such as a desktop background, a home-made birthday card for a friend etc. The U.S. Congress might soon be passing the CASE Act that which would establish a small claims court system. These millions of photo users believe they should not be restricted in any way from doing whatever they want with the property of others. An interesting development photographer should be aware of.

Partial Lunar Eclipse

Last night’s partial lunar eclipse was the last lunar eclipse of 2019. It was visible from Australia, Africa, South America and most of Europe and Asia. Lunar eclipses can be visible from everywhere on the night side of the earth if the sky is clear. Photographing a lunar eclipse contains some luck, since the moon is rising or setting, which means it will be below the horizon. The next lunar eclipse will be on January 10th which will be a penumbral lunar eclipse.
