- Edit My Images
With such rights, come responsibilities. Of course, we want the freedom to be able to take pictures which record our experience of the world. And in some instances, the 'subjects' of those pictures may not be too happy. So it's about balancing your 'right' with sensitivity towards others.I feel uneasy about some of my street shots but I want them and it's MY right to take them not the publics right not to have them taken.
Here's an area where you have to be particularly careful, when it comes to publishing images. Your pictures there do not show any illegal activity, just a few individuals hanging around in a public space. Some are clearly intoxicated/just having a nap. But to imply that any of them are doing anything illegal, whether they are or not, can get you in hot water, because we operate a judicial system based on the premise of 'innocent until proven'. You haven't actually stated that the individuals pictured are involved in any crime, which is good. It's worth remembering that it's better to let the viewer decide what's going on, in some cases. In that way, you're merely observing, not passing judgment.I had a day out as I had heard that Hull City centre had a drugs dealing problem in public. This is just a few of the somewhat dangerous shots.
It's a debate we should all be having. It's about our rights and freedoms, as well as those of others.I think the thread is veering off topic again, probably my fault rambling on about something or other.
