Did the person contact you, or did you just think that you shouldn't post their photo, or is that one of the rules around here?

I only ask because, unless there's a rule around here, there really aren't any laws restricting you posting photos of total strangers, if you took them in a public place - and a bus or train or subway is a public place. You only run into restrictions if you're using the photo for profit, or if you took it in a private area.

Hiker;

I put on that horribly uncomfortable 'moderator hat' (do they make those things out of virtual nettles? I swear as soon as I think of virtually putting it on I get itchy...) and asked her to take it down.

There have been enough cases of people from Dimensions having their pics used without their permission on other sites, that I think the social contract here is not to put up photos of others without their permission, barring the implied permission that comes with being a celebrity/performers/public figure.

I think you made the right call. I don't believe that being in public counts as consent to having your picture taken and posted online. I have a group of kids that's working on a project on beauty and they're printing up photo releases for anyone they may want to take a picture of.

Everyone knows that if you take a picture of a person in public you have already captured their soul anyways. No matter what, you win.

I think Josh Gad is a total cutie! He is soooooo funny in most of his movies and was adorable as the voice of Olaf the snowman in Frozen. He recently lost a bunch of weight but that's his choice. Here are some pics before the (full) weight loss...

And that's a reasonable social contract, especially for a site like this, and I respect it. (Though earlier in the 'Random BHM hotness' column it was not uncommon.)

I raise it only because, as someone who made a living as a photojournalist, and still does a lot of photography in public, I run into a lot of people assuming that there are some legal rules around taking pictures in public places - and really there are very few, as long as you don't make a profit from the image. If you're out in public areas, you essentially have no privacy - that's the nature of being out in public. (And with the growing numbers of CCTVs out there, you really have no privacy!)

So true, so very true (re: no real privacy).

This topic was on my mind a bit over the weekend. In one of those weird twists that keep parenting interesting, my son asked to go to the national art gallery (a couple of years ago he probably would have given up a weeks allowance to be spared).

It is a gorgeous building, and I there was a couple of times when I wanted to pull out my phone and grab a picture of my wife, because a) I like taking pictures of her and b) the setting would make for very cool pics. But there always seemed to be someone else around at the perfect moment (and she won't pose nicely, have to catch the moment when it is happening). I refrained, because I didn't want to be catching other people in the pic....but I was wondering, these days, how much of an exception I might be in that regard?

Default ^It depends.....

An old person, a truly old person, does not give a damn. They will just walk right up to a anyone chosen at random and say something like, "Do you know how to take a picture with a cell phone?" And then just hand off their own (clam-shell flip)phone to a total stranger to just take a picture for them. As such, they will more so tend to get a pass on some of the finer points of this particular area of etiquette. As they should.

Otherwise, if you're in a museum or somewhat of a picturesque setting, or at least part of some sort of gathering for a legitimate occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc...at a restaurant or something); then I would say there is a certain degree of social-latitude extended to you. Just in taking a an extra second or two to more openly ready & aim your device, i.e. to a little more clearly demonstrate that you're not taking the shot surrepticiously, giving the others a fair chance to take themselves out of it. Or, to look at it another way, photo-bomb you.

Basically, think of 5-7 seconds as your ideal window, within which it's actually somewhat more incumbent on the bystander to get out of the way of your shot than it is for you to respect their not wanting to be photographed. The further you go beyond that, longer or shorter; then it more seems like you're trying to catch someone off-guard.

I think so, anyway. Partly because you will also tend to notice that, even in a very crowded, heavily-trafficked area like Grand Central's Main Concourse; if you're obviously trying to get a certain local feature in your shot, the ceiling, the clock, etc..; people will tend make their way around just so as not disrupt you. Or even, some, will stand-briefly in the way of others, as if to help.

I've seen people do that. You just can't, you know, take too, too much advantage.

Conversely, if you're just a guy who likes to take pictures, alone, by yourself, and particularly if you're taking them at some distance to the human subjects largely unknown to you; then, yeah, you will tend to draw some negative attention that way. In which case, regardless of what laws or freedoms may apply, it's generally not a good idea to let your mouth write checks your ass can't cash.

And I guess there's always the option of just blurring out faces, or cropping the photos you take (although, it might require a heavy amount of butchering, depending on how crowded the place is.) I tend to be fairly photo averse most of the time, so this isn't a huge problem for me, but it's interesting to think back on outings with the family and how little attention we actually paid to that sort of thing when taking pictures. If a random bystander was in frame, their souls were just unsuspecting victims of the mighty Polaroid...

To be honest I never think about it. I don't have a problem with people taking my picture. That being said I can see why someone would get mad. That is why I took it down. I might just take your suggestion Mr. Sensible and blur out peoples faces.

As Yakatori says, I think if you 'set it up' and give people a few seconds to decide to 'vacate the frame', very few or no people will mind. Of course, that may be too long to grab a casual shot of your wife! (I know my wife is also 'photo averse' except for posed family portraits.)

I see a lot of people much younger than 'truly old' doing this, especially in touristy spots; I often end up being the one who is handed the camera! I dunno, do I look especially honest or helpful or something?

Tad and Fat Hiker, For the most part, most older fat people try to avoid the camera. Specially since it tends to make you look bigger. Thank goodness this new generation does everything with pictures so the chubby/fat/thick people are more welcoming of taking pictures and posing for pictures.
