Hi, I’m JC Ruiz and I’m a color blind photographer. Your turn, “Hi JC.” Funny thing about being a color blind photographer is the misconception that I must take amazing black and white photographs or I must have a hard time with my post processing. Well 1 out of 2 isn’t bad, I do take some amazing black and white photographs hahahahahahaha I kid I kid. No but seriously I do hahahahaha I’m pretty sure if I never mentioned I was color blind people would never know the difference.
With the advent of the internet it has been easy to steal photos and pawn them off as your own, but the recent rash of theft among photographers is alarming. Whether it is Cliff Mautner blogging about his photos being stole or the recent plagiarism controversy surrounding Jasmine Star and Doug Gordon, it seems theft among photographers isn’t just about photos being stolen but content and articles as well. I’ll never understand the need to steal from someone else to pass their work off as my own, but I guess you really never know the real reasons why people do it.
