There is the portrait right: This protects people against publication of photographs if they have a reasonable interest against it. Think of violation of their good name or reputation, or the loss of income, etc. Reasons like "I do not want the picture" is not enough . But publication for commercial purposes without paying them can be challenged. A big misconception is that permission must be requested. That's not true. People may oppose publication, but you are not required to ask permission.
Freedom of information collection: This means that everybody is allowed to take pictures of public roads and everything and everyone on them.
But not every public place is considered as public road! Places such as subway stations, etc. are not on the public road and the owner may prohibit you there to photograph. You are then obliged to follow that.
And of course there is copyright. As the photographer you are seen as the author and you hold the rights to the photo, not your subject, unless agreed in writing that it is different.
That's the (dutch) law but many photographers use alongside a number of decent standards!
E.g. it is so nice to inform people that you have taken a picture of them. If you dare
Great pics from the last few pages, haven't been on here in a while...
I'm thinking about taking up photography a little bit this summer--what do you think would be a good camera to start out with? I've only worked with a little point-and-shoot Kodak so far, and I can't really do much with it. I don't really want to get into buying hugely expensive lenses or anything, but just a camera that I can take decent shots with would be awesome.
longjohnie and slimpie> I don't think taking a picture of someone is a big deal. Posting them online is a different story.
I get what you say mattias, but hunting people down in order to take a picture can be an issue.
Also I don't think posting a picture of someone at a public place should be an issue as long it is not offensive in any way. If that would be outlawed because of privacy or such it would be the end of street photography.
Personally i think all those Big Brother cameras in the streets nowadays are a bigger issue.
@Kmart, depending on what you're willing to spend, best point & shoot all around right now that I have used personally is the fujifilm x100. That thing is seriously amazing. It has a big enough sensor to capture shallow dof. It doesn't have interchangeable lenses but its mounted with a f/2 lens which is good enough for low light. The only deal breaker is the price which is roughly $1000 usd. you can pretty much just buy an entry level dslr with a nice starter prime lens for a cheaper price
If you do not want the size of a dSLR, I have very good experience with the Sony Nex3.
The APS-C sensor, optics and user options (free exposure control and manual focus option with zoomed direct view) are really like a good SLR but the body is much smaller. Only thing "missing" is a viewfinder what is an issue if the LCD screen is in direct sunlight even though the contrast of the screen is above average. You can buy a view finder separately and mount it on top, but don't know about the quality of that.
Also there is a new model NexC3K
great pics envy!!!
^^ Thanks for the recommendations, that Sony looks great. Will update here if/when I get one.
I finally booked my first studio photo shoot, although I honestly did not know how to light my subject correctly/artistically but I gave it my best shot, oh and the 2nd is a self portrait from my recent trip to nyc.
^ I like the shot of the girl. I assume it was taken in a studio?
My neck strap, unknown to me, was partially covering my lens when I took this photo. It resulted in the black fading around the band members and I thought it was just a pretty neat fluke shot altogether. Taken awhile ago:
Hahahahahahahaha! Oh good times!! And I'm going to e-mail you soon, I haven't had the chance and I'm catching up with my online life finally!
Yeah it was a great meet up and an awesome day!

Definitely will! Likewise if you're ever in London!
Thanks, here are some of Australia:

Well I live in England and spend half of my time bored out of my mind in the countryside and the other half in London.
As for Japan, Australia and America, I went travelling for a little over 3 months at the start of the year :-D
