5D Mark III, Ryder Cup, and Release Signature ??
Sep 30, 2012

Just wanted to share a couple of pictures (I took 400+) during Tuesday's practice round at the Ryder Cup. I have a couple where I actually caught the ball flying off the tee.

The camera was perfect - used single shot as well as servo throughout the day. I have a 100-400 lens and was able to shoot just about anything I wanted to. For most of the tee shots I had the drive set to High Speed multi. I will be posting them to my web site once I get them processed http://www.mhcooperphotography.smugmug.com - come take a look.

I do have a question regarding "Model Release Signatures". If I want to submit a couple of these photos to a magazine would I need a release from the golfers? I assume I would not be able to get it. Or - is it fair game to shoot them and use the pictures as these are people in the "public domain"?
