    A guy I work with hired me to take some photos of a particular player at the Reds game last night. He gave me what I feel is a substantial amount of money to get these shots. Anyway, He wants to print them in the neighborhood of 16x20 and hang them in his sports room. Hope I didn't dissapoint.

    I think most stadiums and teams dont allow you to take pictures of players and sell them.... I might be wrong though

    I like the last one best :)

    What ISO did you use? They look a tad noisy to me.

    It was 400. I think you're right, they do look a tad noisy, They're strait out of the camera without any noise filtering. I think I'm going to run them through noise ninja.

    Again. Are you allowed to take photos of the players and sell them? Do you have some shots where we can see the players face?

    I don't think that you can take photos and sell them. I don't have any of him from the front because the "customer" was very specific on the shots that he wanted. He wants "action" or in "the ready stance" pictures that he can read his name. That's what I got for him. I guess it really is against their rules to take the photos and sell them, but since I'm not going to be selling them to the public just delivering them to the guy that commissioned me I won't have to worrry about it.

    What you did is 100% illegal but your right you will most likely not get caught since you are not activly marketing them for sale.

    I don't make it a habit to break the law, and/or do things that give photographers a bad name, so I won't be taking on a job like this again.

    Very nice shots
    Completly irrelavent but some guy/kid joined TPF looking to pay someone for some particular shots. Everyone thought it was a scam but i decided to check it out. Basicly he was in some kind of photography class and had a project to do. So i had to take some pics showing different DOF, with and without flash, and from different angle. It was only like 30 shots total. Easiest 100 bucks ive ever made in my life =)

    That's pretty cool. I was glad to take the shots for him, as a matter of fact I prolly would have just done it for free for him if he had asked(I was already going to the game anyway), but he offered up the money so I took it.

    So you essentialy did this person's project for them. Good for you that you made some money but money is not everything, there is a point where you need to ask if you are behaving ethically but everyone has different beliefs and ethics so its for you to determine where that line is.
