OhLook and Dwain, I think you have missed my point completely. No harm done though.

But I realize that my grandchildren will appear in public many thousands of times over the years leading to adulthood and I have no control over who might take a photo of them. I don't worry about it. Heck, I have even posted photos of them on this forum. Does that put them at increased risk of someone using their photos for something distasteful? Probably... but increase the risk of actual emotional or physical harm coming to them? So unlikely as to be unmeasurable.

The are other things in life to fret over.

Dwain

Probably. There are some pretty weird people here on POTN.

I don't think either of us missed your point. We just don't believe that photographing small children in skimpy outfits is evil in itself or that a parent in that situation would be justifiably horrified and the guy with the telephoto lens would be in the wrong. The photographer may have been driving around looking for shots of people having fun in hot weather. A genuine pervert who cruised residential neighborhoods to collect material for the purposes you suggest would necessarily be a very foolish pervert, considering that some parents are alert and suspicious.

Your general point, that trying to understand the other person's concerns goes a long way toward avoiding or resolving disputes, I agree with.


PRONOUN ADVISORY: OhLook is a she. | A FEW CORRECT SPELLINGS: lens, aperture, amateur, hobbyist, per se, raccoon, whoa, more so (2 wds.), shoo-in | IMAGE EDITING OK

Well, you know how it is: the bigger the lens, the greater the perversion.

Now, where did I put my 1200mm f/5.6L USM? Damn! I'll have to settle for my Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG and its 2× teleconverter!

Best one I had was I was shooting in the french area of our city, with a model in a blues/jazz type outfit with a saxophone. It was at night, and we were beside a main roadway. There was me, the model and a VAL (voice activated light - assistant with a flash on a mono-pod)

I am obviously taking photos of this very beautiful model, when a old truck come up besides us and slams on his brakes, the guy starts yelling at me that he wasn't speeding, and I had no right to give him a ticket. I tried to explain to him that I was not the police, and I was not shooting him or his truck. and they guy wouldn't believe me, even when I said "dude, when is that last time you saw the police doing radar with a hot model holding a saxophone?" he continues to yell at me that he wasn't speeding, and he better not get a ticket in the mail and then he sped off. All we could do was laugh, and keep shooting.

Some people just want to believe what they want to believe. be polite and ignore them.

Again, proof that the good Lord, in His infinite wisdom, saw fit to create far more horse's hind ends than He did front ends. Many of the excess hind ends have learned to walk upright and speak, and apparently to drive.

Besides, I'll bet he indeed was speeding! So great a guilty conscience pretty much establishes that.

Not to mention that his slamming on his brakes and stopping in mid-road created a traffic hazard.
