Does anyone object if I take pictures?

I am noticing several pictures posted on here that have not been sent to me. Does anyone mind if I 'take' a picture that is posted here and use in the calendar? Otherwise I will contact and ask for a hard copy. I almost have enough pictures at this time but it seems there is always another great picture being posted.

Hi: Tammy... I hope one of them was mine and I for one certainly don't mind if one is used. Looking forward to seeing the results. Alf

Tammy,

I think you need to ask the individuals who posted them, personally. For one they'll be flattered and for another you would be in a better legal position than by asking the forum for blanket permission.

Also, for a printed calendar, you will want much higher resolution image files than those here.

I don't mind at all. For myself, I have lots of other photos (assuming you are interested), all at a higher resolution than what can be displayed here. Just let me know

I also think that before we take any pictures, we should ask the owner. Otherwise, the pictures seem to be stolen! Also, to give compliment on great pics!

Re: Does anyone object if I take pictures?


It isn't necessary to ask permission unless the pictures are used for advertising purposes. You can take pictures of anything, in a public place. What matters is how the pictures are used. If you use them to ridicule somebody, you could find yourself in trouble in some jurisdictions. IE. you can't take a picture of Oprah and then run an ad, using the picture to promote your business, but you can shoot a picture of Oprah tripping on a curb and the Enquirer can run it in their editorial pages.

Of course, the nice thing to do is ask. As a news photog, I'm not going to ask the accused if I can take his picture, and I wouldn't ask Oprah either. I did approach a couple caressing under a tree and ask for their names. After recovering from shock, they asked me not to publish the picture. They were married, but not to each other.

As for acquiring other peoples pictures from the forum and then using them for your own purpose ( ie. publishing them ) I think you'd be in trouble, but, that said, the media do it all the time. If a cheerleader is murdered, first place they go is FaceBook looking for a picture. It may be that once placed on a forum like that, it enters the public domain. I'm not a lawyer....
I'd stay away from using it to promote a business.

You can use anything I've got if it means I can get a calendar : - ) How's it going?
