everiman: The problem is not 'is it art?' it is stupid human tricks. Keep it up and your toys will be confiscated.
If the major news organizations and the Presidents don't want to talk about it, there isn't much anyone else can do.
Frank Petronio: More Leftist propaganda... Block and deport the illegals before they ruin things further.
Only a fool could say what you say. A smug self-righteous fool who doesn't have a clue what is happening in the world. A fool who believes propaganda that sounds good, so you can remain ignorant. It tells you that you're morally superior for thinking like a politically correct tool, and that's good enough for you. Reality doesn't enter into the debate for you. All that matters is what you believe regardless of any facts. You don't want to hear about the major problems that come with this kind of immigration. That would be a downer. That would be reality, and you're not able to cope with reality. You should stay clueless.
bobus: "How can this be happening in 2014?", he says. It's happening because EU and UK governments - looking for cheap labor - have spread the word that if you come to their countries you will get all kinds of social benefits.
Labour 'sent out search parties for immigrants', Lord Mandelson admits

I know it to be the truth.
Deport the legal immigrants, too.

These aren't portraits. These are just pictures of faces.
Here's a tip to you guys who make Molotov cocktails: Do NOT PUT THE RAG IN THE BOTTLE!! You cork the bottle and fix the alcohol-soaked rag to the outside. When bottle breaks the fuel will ignite, and not before. This way when you light the rag, there is less danger of burning you and everyone else when you try to throw an uncorked burning bottle of napalm.
joe6pack: They turn the thing upside down to shoot floor footage and then the video will be up-side-down, right?
LOL. If you say so, 0.
Seems like printing is much too expensive. Other manufacturing processes like injection molding should be adequate and much cheaper.
That can be easily fixed in Adobe Premiere Elements.
"...why not combine some epic fire-breathing..." Makes sense to me!
bobus: I can can see all that and more in Tijuana.
I'm happy that dpreview didn't try to whitewash Sochi. Our media in the US is determined to hide the truth from the people.
I can can see all that and more in Tijuana.
zycamaniac: Yeah, zap people in the street for your own gain and call it art.
I can see that there will soon be a newspaper headline talking about an obnoxious camera car guy getting shot, with car set aflame via Molotov Cocktail.
I don't understand how anyone can do things for his own gain!
Lee Jay: What a worthless loser.
Aside from the fact that this is immoral and produces lousy photography, what happens when he triggers a medical response in his victims? I can get opthalmic migraines from regular on camera flashes fired directly at me. Debilitating, but not dangerous. I avoid studio strobes like the plague. What if he triggers a seizure in someone?
Just a worthless loser!!!
Earthlight: ..."raises troubling questions about privacy"
Why? The pick-up and the light-blaster-on-the-pole are hardly stealthy. Licence plates and all. I'd rather worry about the ubiquitous cellphone videographer. :)
There is no expectation of privacy in public places, and clearly not all the subjects are offended. Although they do seem to be mostly grumpy old people.
robogobo: I'm learning how conservative and unimaginative most DPReview readers are. What a bunch of pedantic, judgemental boring old grumps!
It's really just a tiny minority of disgruntled pedantic, judgmental, boring, grumpy old men!
photoramone: Do you suppose that it's LEGAL, or Friendly, even?? I once took a picture of four ladies in a shopping mall, all were dressed in middle-eastern garb (Burkas) and you could see nothing more than their EYES. I was incredulous that they were very angry that I had taken this picture of them, out in public... My response to their complaint was, I'm very sorry, I won't do it again... But later, it occured to me that , How could they Prove, in a court of law, that it was the four of THEM??? BUT, I believe that, with-out getting their PERMISSION, I shouldn't have "done that Drive-bye" thing.. I'm just sayin!!!
"I was incredulous that they were very angry that I had taken this picture of them, out in public... "
That's a muslim thing.
