I thought this was a neat video. It reminded me of my childhood with the pride that my dad, uncles and their friends had with their vehicles. The photography of vehicles was a bonus.
Since we’re on the subject of wildlife and animals in general today, I came across some more inspirational photos over at Boston.com’s Big Picture site. These world animal day photos are something to marvel at. As always with Boston.com’s Big Picture, the photos are large and in charge and always worthy of viewing.
More and more web applications are coming out that allow you to edit and process your photos online. I’ve always been partial to using software installed on my computer to process my photos, but I certainly understand not everyone can afford some of the more expensive photo editing software such as Adobe’s Photoshop. For some, Adobe Photoshop may be too complicated, as it does have a steep learning curve for most. Plus, what if you are traveling and don’t have access to your favorite photo editing software to process a photo? Whatever your circumstances might be, thankfully you can do it online these days. Check out this list of 10 online photo editors.
Be sure to read the comments, as there are several sites mentioned by others that are not listed in the main article.
I came across an interesting blog post today about where a photographer was harassed by a security officer for taking pictures of a building. A few weeks ago I stumbled across another posting where a photographer was being harassed at a local soccer event for kids by some parents. In both cases, the police can’t do anything about this, as long as they were not on private property or there was no reason or expectation of privacy (aka public place).
While I personally have never been harassed in a public place (in a government facility is another story), I have found some of these stories intriguing at what could happen. In any case, while reading todays story, I came across a few interesting sites that had documentation from their research and state laws. I thought a reprint of these here might benefit those that might be interested. It might just come in handy to keep a copy of these with your gear, just in case you encounter some of these ignorant people saying it’s “illegal to photograph” (insert location here).
The Legal Rights of Photographers was published by Andrew Kantor on his web site. His posting on this, along with a LOT of interested comments, can be found at Andrew Kantor’s Place. The Photographers Rights was posted by Bert P. Krages. He has also written a couple of books pertaining to this subject. You can find more info on Mr. Krages’ site.
