pictures on people on the web
When you take pictures on the street and you post a picture and a person stands out in the picture how can you post without a photo release. I see picks on here all the time with a person standing out. has anyone on here had a any kind of legal problems over this. also has anyone on here seen there picture on dpreview. I like to take street pictures that is why I am asking this question. thanks..

Unless the laws have changed, if it's not published for advertising reasons then everyone is fair game.Other wise you would need a model release and pay them at least one dollar.'The moment you think your great is the moment you quit learning.'http://www.gawalters.com..

I am not a lawyer and I have no idea where you live or where/what you shoot, but it is my understanding that unless you sell an image for advertising use with recognizable people, you are in the clear..

Enough weasel words for you?..

This will explain it all. In a nutshell, you only need a model release if the use is commercial..

I don't think even the dollar is required for a release everywhere. It depends on local laws..

You can actually sell the image to be used commercially as long as you don't misrepresent the fact that you don't have a model release. It is then the publisher's responsibility to get the release or to assume the risk of not having one. (And many do just that if they feel the risk of being pursued is justified.).

That wasn't specifically mentioned. The photos must be taken in a location where there is no expectation of privacy. You take a photo on the beach that's one thing. Take it of someone in their back yard that is another..
