• David j returns and deserves a double thumbs up for the feathered dude!

    Hi Bev, Not a hobby of mine, but I have two close friends who are photographers
    One in particular who has an arty wild personality, can stop people anywhere and strike up a connection and get some awesome photos.

    Cheers Strutt G, pics taken in Philadelphia where we are being hosted by family (on the lookout for Trump pics also). So, still out of the PP loop but will make the occasional contribution.

    Bye Bye

    If it's in a public place, there's no legal reason they can object. Unless there children in the photo. If it's on private property, you need to ask permission.
    It's only happened to me once (that someone objected in the street) and I deleted the photo because it didn't bother me either way.
    Sometimes I do feel a bit odd taking pics of strangers!

    It's also about what you do with the photo afterwards,for example if you publish it for gain different rules apply.
    Also I think some would feel uncomfortable if someone posted a clear prominent photo (of them) on the internet without their knowledge, so that's always worth bearing in mind depending on where you post.
    It's difficult if you happen to take a snap like marc's to inform the person retrospectively, unless you've taken their details at the time, and the whole point of candid photography is that it's of the moment.
