If you practice street photography for very long, you will undoubtedly find yourself pondering some ethical issues. Our webinar will focus on many of the potential questions you might encounter:
• To shoot or not to shoot? When is it okay to take a controversial photo? What are the laws and the ethics?
• To delete or not to delete? When someone asks you to delete a photo you’ve taken, what do you do? When do you comply? When do you stand your ground?
• To post or not to post? What if you take your money shot -- the shot of a lifetime -- but the photo could have negative implications for someone in the image?
• To sell or not to sell? - When is it okay to make money from a photograph of another person? When isn’t it? What’s the deal with model releases, and do I need them for street photography?
We’re going to look at a number of controversial street photography cases and stories. We’ll discuss the law. And of course, we’ll discuss the gray areas.
Many of these situations don’t have clear answers, but we will talk about a framework that should help us navigate our next street photography dilemma.
