    I have recently started to take photos of people and found it quite hard and challenging. This is probably the best one I managed to take so far.

    Nicely done. How did you do your selective colouration?

    yeah you are right lol but I think I am too shy or too much of a coward sometimes to walk up closer to strangers and just take pics of them lmao well I know I would be like "what the heck? why are you taking a pic of me?" if some stranger come up to me and just start to take photos of me. oh well lol I may will try to take pics of friends in the future if I can find some interesting ones lol

    Well, if you had a massive zoom lens, that would get rid of all those problems :p

    Actually in the US, as long as you are in public, pictures of you can be taken. As long as you are not in a "private place" such as your bedroom or dresser or bathroom. Look up photographer's rights. In Canada, I don't think it exists.

    lol thats what I thought and here is a proof that it is NOT illegal or whatever to take photos of people in the public, btw geez the news photographers take photos of strangers all the freaking time and you dont see them get into trouble because of that :mrgreen: Well I kinda stink at people photography anyway so I wont do whole alot of that in the future

    lol I walked past this nightclub last friday and saw a bunch of police officers standing outside so I decided to take some pics of the scene. Several of them actually saw me taking photos of them and they did nothing :greenpbl:

    hobbes, that's a really nice shot! it's really tough to get good candid pictures of people, esp if you dont have much zoom. you go to close, they realize you're there and it changes the scene...
    i dont think this one is too bad though. you could just crop it a little bit... :)
