To be honest, I didn't really want to watermark all of them, but when I used my batch scaling program to size them down to post, none of the files would upload. They would all give me an upload error on this forum when I tried to post the photos.
So, to get them done, I just ran them through my Photoshop batch process which puts a watermark on them, but for some reason those .jpg files uploaded without errors. Sorry if they bug you. My photography business has nothing to do with photographing a Head-Fi meet.
I printed out signs for everyone at the meet who was signed up to bring gear. It was up to them to put their signs out if they wanted.
But when I took the photos, I was so busy demoing my own gear and software that I barely had enough time to spend with anyone else. So I just ran around and snapped as many photos as I could. I didn't have time to even know who they were or what they were showing.
No offense, but its quite rude to question anyone for watermarking their photos. Darin you shouldn't have to justify your actiosn in this regard especially given that you are giving back to the community by taking the time to post pics of a meet. Business or not, I watermark every pic I post on any forum nowadays, sometimes smack dab in the middle of the photo so people don't go cropping and using it without permission.
With that said, looks like a great meet! Thanks for sharing the pics.
