I use something like this exiftool script and get the copyright in as well:

exiftool -Artist="Don Samuels" \
"-Copyright=Don Samuels 2023" \
"-ProfileCopyright=Don Samuels 2023" \
"-CopyrightNotice=Don Samuels 2023" \
"-FocalLength=154.70297 mm" \
-LensMake="WilliamsOptics" \
-LensModel="RedCat 51" \
-fnumber=4.9 \
$1 -overwrite_original
