TECHNICALLY this is not a TECH post. But since the majority of you guys use digital cameras (I can’t recall the last time I saw someone in the field using a film camera) this article seems appropriate.
As an amateur photographer, I have always been asked about issues of shooting photos of people in public without their permission, stopping on the roadside to get a shot of an interesting sign or building or landmark, and all sorts of other legalistic things.
Now, I am not a pro photog, I don’t play one on TV, and I did not spend the night at a Holiday Inn Express, but I DID run across this cool article that sheds some light on 5 issues most photographers, pro or amateur, will run up against.
Also, for anyone out there who likes to find and use digital images and content from the web, be sure to check out the link on image copyrights and the link on Creative Commons licensing.

And no, that is not a selfie of me at the top of the page. But nice try!!
