    The father is blind but he still carry his son on the back. This photo is taken in the way near by my house.

    Does he know you took pictures of him?

    BTW, what effect(s) are you using in this picture? It seems like it is glowing... USM?

    I agree. But if I asked him, this photo would be not for real moment, real emotion. Some time, when we are in the street, we meet somethings happening and we take a shot without ask for permission. This is street life photography. Or maybe I'm wrong.

    I think you can take pictures of anyone in public if there is a responable expectation that is a public place. This looks like a street so I would assume it's safe.

    Unless you are referring to a rule with this forum, and to that, I am not aware.

    Cute... the son, not the father.

    I believe (and could be wrong) a release is required if the photographer intends to sell the image or perhaps enter it into a contest.

    But, don't quote me on that.

    I guess it depends. You cant take a recognizable photo of someone and sell it without a release even if it is on the street. laws vary beyond that and are complicated.

    here is my issue. My husband and I have 4 kids. Two teenage boys (his from his first marriage) and then two toddlers from our marriage. They are both adopted and are Mayan/Hispanic. Our older two are half Asian. My husband and I are white white. My husband uses a wheel chair, he is paralyzed. This doesn't stop him from parenting working, providing our family a very comfortable life.

    But if someone thought it was neat to see him with one child on his lap, the other standing on his feet (thats how he carries both toddlers) or thought our "rainbow family" and snapped a photo, I would be super pissed. We arent a public oddity to be put on display and we are human and should be respected. You don't really know how much we get stared at or talked about because we are "different".

    You are exploiting this man by not asking his permission, even if it was after the fact. Go up to him and tell him who you are, that you thought he embodied something special about fatherhood and you took his photo and would love to send him a print or two. Taking his photo and not telling him and getting away with it cause he is blind...just kind of shady in my book.

    I agree with the above comment. I'm not sure if the blind man's family would appreciate this if they saw it on this site, or any site, period.

    Don't get me wrong, it is a nice photo, but you should ask him if it's ok to post it.
