Oh, those criminal news photographers!

Postby BarbaraC » Sat Aug 25, 2012 3:25 am

There's a little something for everyone here: http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/08/1 ... otography/

If you love taking photos on the street or if you wonder what's legal and what isn't when photographing public areas, you'll find something of interest in this article. (It would appear not all police know the difference between upholding the law and making law.)

guess I need to learn how to take better pictures with my cell phone.

It seems very odd in a time when nearly every one has photo and video capability at hand all the time, that those with a camera whose only function is to take pictures gets singled out for harassment.

Sometimes more than others "may you live in interesting times" is truly a curse.

It would seem the writer (photographer-turned-lawyer) is fighting the good fight: Freedom of the press. I'm all for upholding the U.S. Constitution, and it's lovely to see that others are too.
