  1. Task 1 Take Some Photos

    In this activity you'll take photos of your local neighbourhood and share them so that others can reuse them. You'll learn how to apply open licenses to your photos that make it easier for other people to create new works from them.

    There are many ways to put an open license on something you make. We are going to focus on these 3 licenses:

    • CC-BY: This means "you can use my work so long as you give me credit".
    • CC-BY-SA: This means "you can use my work so long as you give me credit and share your new work in the same way that I did".
    • CC-BY-NC: This means "you can use my work so long as you give me credit and don't use it for commercial purposes". "Commercial purposes" means someone making money from using your image.

    Task

    Walk around your neighborhood and take photos of what you find. Choose one of the images you have taken and upload it as your evidence, stating which license you chose - either CC-BY, CC-BY-SA or CC-BY-NC.

    Optional:

    Pick 3-5 photos and share them on social media. Add a license and the #makerparty hashtag to each photo you like this: photograph shared by creator's name with a license name #makerparty
