Re: filmscanners: OT: photographing on the street

It's a pretty simple release and I'm sure it's far from bulletproof,
legally speaking. The funny thing is this guy has no intention of ever
selling his photographs -- he's retired and living off a seven-figure pile
of money -- but told me gets releases when he can because he'll never be
able to get them later, should the need ever arise.

True enough but so far as I know, he doesn't shoot them very often.
Actually, from what I've seen of it, there are actually very few people in
his "street" photographs and fewer still in mine. I mostly shoot things
like dumpsters and condemned buildings and faded signs, etc. ... the fewer
people in my photos, the better! :^)
