    Think Singapore is similar, depends on where the photo is taken, if standing on public property then normally is OK. But there are so many other law we don't know, later charged under Clause X.X.X Subsection X.X.X Sub subsection X.X.X under XXX Act...

    time to get a DSLR with dual memory slot. You may delete the photo in front of her if she insist but keep the other card intact. I did that once, just smile, delete in front of that fella, turn and walk away.

    Personally I don't know why people can get so worked up with others taking photo of them unless you aim a big lens directly at their face. We got our pictures taken almost everywhere... CCTV, ATM machines, traffic cameras...

    So, a upgrade to D800 is justified, hehe

    but then, if the one being photographed doesn't want it, I also don't want to keep his or her photo ....

    great idea. if you take a photo of a girl, tell her "i'm keeping your picture because i want your prettiness as a benchmark for the girls my Son/Future Son."

    if it's a guy... "i'm keeping your picture because i want to show my Daughter/Future Daughter what kind of guy she should date."

    of course... if you want to troll them... you could always say:

    "i'm keeping your picture because to show my Son/Daughter what kind of person they should not date"

    While waiting for my bus, someone tapped on my shoulder and beckoned me to follow her. I was stunned for a while and stayed put.

    Seeing that i'm not budging, she asked, "Did u take my photo?' in mandarin.

    I answered "No."

    "I was sitting at the steps just now and i 'beow" you for a long time, you must have taken my photos. I want to have a look at your camera" she said, still maintaining her soft spoken manner.

    "I have the right to not show you, but it's ok, I'll show it to you" I said, knowing that I'll prove her wrong.

    I pointed the camera's LCD to her and scrolled through the images, seeing nothing of herself, she raised her hand in a apologetic manner. I shaked my head a few times, just for the effect to make her feel ridiculous.

    I already have little courage to do streets photo and yet I have to "suffer" this!
    Now she trusted you, you can start shooting her & she won't question you again.....................
    Take the shot!

    erm... do you really know some of them,read some statistics or are you just making baseless assumptions? i am not one lol, and i do not know any, but i find your statements prejudicial if you are just making assumptions.....it is kind of "racist" if it was directed against a race... sorry my english is not fantastic so i do not know the word for it....but if you are making baseless assumptions i find the statements quite nasty ...

    I heard in some parts of Africa this belief still holds. So be careful if visiting Africa, make sure to check if ok to shoot pple.

    i don't think you should make that statement without first putting a disclaimer that "not all butches are like that"

    anyone can kill someone else. just because we're talking about butches and there's a crime allegedly committed by a butch... doesn't mean that all butches will do that.

    i think it's also 2 way, if you want to photograph people then don't use a huge camera with a bazooka lens. Obviously that will intimidate people. When i use iphone/gx1 to snap people, almost all of them don't care, even if they know i'm taking their picture. Don't care meaning after you've taken the shot and they look at you, it's not a GLARE.

    On the other hand when i take the dslr, some people GLARE after you're taken the shot. I've even encountered a guy who was sitting down and leaned his whole body backwards - like doing yoga - when he saw the camera pointing his way.

    Some people don't like to be photographed, let's respect that. We can do that by being discreet, be it with our choice of gear, the way we take people etc. Just take the shot smoothly, swiftly, and most people won't even know you took their picture.

    Let's face it, it's rude to take someone pictures without permission. More so if it's from a complete stranger. If you really want to do it please be discreet, if caught then it's mission failed don't complain and bring out the law book. The law might allow it but doesn't mean everyone will agree to the law. I myself hate to be shot at when I am not ready or my hair is messy even from my wife so no way I will allow it on the street. I believe a lot of people feel the same as me too or the zillion reasons they might have, we have to respect what other people's feeling too.

    Shows why you need to be discreet when doing street photography... A big DSLR with a big lens never helps... I personally dont want my photograph to be taken by a stranger no matter what the law says

    Hmmm this is interesting, I guess once in a while we have to think like the subject.

    Let's say you personally don't want, and then you saw someone took a picture of you in a public property (and let's say nothing wrong with that according to the law). What action will you take?
