I just wanted to get an idea of what the members would benefit most from. What can we do to help you enjoy your camera more? I put some options down but I'm sure I forgot something...... if so, let me know what I missed....

Why when I voted for several things in the list do they still show as "0" indicating nobody has voted for them in the final result? Can you only "tick" one box?

I can't add a topic at his point..... but point taken. I tried to be as general as possible and figured "Portraiture" would cover all "people" shots.

On a separate note........

I'd love to see the thoughts of others besides the moderators. I'd love to know what the rest of you would like. At this stage we have a 4.3% voting turnout. I mean at least 15% would be great to get a good feel.

Thanks!

I for one, would like to know about some legalities and/or ethics of posting, displaying, selling photos. For instance, I got some shots last weekend of surfers at the San Clemente pier. The surfers' faces are clearly identifiable in the shots, and some of those surfers may be minors. I know I'd need model releases from legal guardians to SELL the shots, but what about posting them on one of the boards here? Are there legal ramifications? If not, are there ethical ramifications? I certainly don't want to disrespect someone's privacy, so I wouldn't post them without permission, but I'd like to know what other concerns might come into play. What about pictures of someone's property, a storefront with a uniquely designed display in the window, an art gallery, etc. I know there have been some rumblings about tightening up on photos with trademarks in them. I have been slowly working on a photo essay on Laguna Beach, and a lot of the shots are of shops on the streets. I haven't shot any of the many galleries there because I don't want to step on anyone's copyright (just as I wouldn't want them stepping on mine). If I were to take these shots, are there standard-practice ways to use the shots without violating anyone's copyright? Would permissions be needed to even post these shots on a forum such as this? I could go on all day but you all get the idea. Any and all considerations would be welcome...

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Generally speaking, this is an "editorial" site, with information to benefit its users. It is not a commercial site loaded with advertising, so you are probably okay in using the images you shoot here. Editorial laws protect you, just like with a newspaper.

Now, If I were to take one of your images and post it on the front of my website and use it to advertise services of any type, you would need a model release in most cases.

As long as an image does not cast its subject in a defamatory light, or is not used to sell a product, it can be used for informational purposes. We need not be paranoid about image use for editorial purposes.

Of course, that does not mean that a person appearing in the photograph might not sue you. But, they probably wouldn't win. There are people like the ones shown here:
