Re: Question about copyright, models and the law...

Going to a park and photographing other peoples children is kind of creepy.

I think you are right, that paparazzi/artist analogy is way over what I am planning to do so I think I would be safe just mentioning to them that I plan to use their picture as a courtesy.

Now..... is going out to the public park, beaches and other public places to take pictures of random people a good, or a bad Idea.

I can see people being bothered by the lens of my camera pointing at them and may be getting the wrong impression of my intentions.... specially if I go to the park and photograph kids in the playground, I feel they could get the wrong feeling about my purposes. I am just asking becasuse here in California people loves to sue and there are many "touchy" people out here.

Any good/bad experiences on this?
