    You could just have a table beside you with the paper on it and ask as people wait in line to read the file and sign before they have their portrait taken. You can then either a) assume everyone signs OR b) take note of the image number and write it at the top of their signed model release forms so you know who signed and who didn't.

    I thought you didn't need a model release for something considered "art", such as for your gallery.

    You don't need a model release unless the images are being used for commercial purposes.

    "Commercial" does not apply to you web gallery display. That includes selling the images in most cases.

    I'll see if I can find the link that explains it.

    Don't try and take this all in at once, but definitely read it in it's entirety...at least twice :wink:

    One small excerpt:

    Make sure you also read section 8.5 from the link above.
