If you’re going to publish your slideshows online on where they’re publicly accessible you have to use royalty free or copyright free music, otherwise you may be liable for copyright violation.
Catherine Easton has been doing our camera club slideshows and since COVID they’ve been posted to the club’s YouTube channel. When asked where she was finding the music, she said:
I did a google search on the subject of Royalty Free and Copyright Free music — and lots of sites come up. These are two that I’ve explored and downloaded some tracks:
- Mixkit – which, in addition to free music, provides stock video clips, sound effects, and video templates
- Bensound – which provides hundreds of royalty free songs in categories including acoustic, folk, cinematic, corporate, pop, electronica, urban, groove, jazz. rock, and world.
You have to be prepared to spend an hour or two researching the various pieces of music — there is a reason why some of it hasn’t made the “top 100 list”. However, I’ve managed to get a collection of a dozen or so pieces that should keep me going for the 2020/2021 season of slide shows.
Ross Laing will be presenting Buying Used Photography Equipment at our meeting on Friday, January 8th, 2021. He has been a keen amateur photographer for over 50 years and shoots a variety of genres. Ross especially enjoys taking images of landscapes and abstracts. A career as an educator took him to many countries and encouraged his interest in travel photography. More recently he has been focused on developing both macro and portrait photography skills. Ross is an active member of the RA Photo Club and is nearing completion of the Photography Techniques Program at Algonquin College.Continue reading “Ross Laing Presenting in January”
