Re: Went to a local Street Fair - No Photography

NObody put their "home" out on main st. for all to gawk at...and take pix if they like.

Artists know the score before they venture out into the street. Like movie stars...they want u to look and pay...but not to look and walk away. Guess what ? it's free space.

Here's the thing. Sandy had it right. I've been doing art shows for over 30 years and copying has always been a problem. Now that the down sliding economy is effecting the art shows, artists are a lot more sensitive to things that may effect their bottom line.

As for the blanket right to point your camera at what ever you choose, there seems to be a lack of common sense in this discussion. The artists pay a lot of money for their 10x10 space. For the amount of time the event is happening, it's their property and they expect the same courtesy as if you came into their home.
