    Let's all hope for a little less institutional stupidity so that real security threats will not be left alone while a harmless amatuer becomes the disproportionate target of scrutiny.

    Wow so now you need a model release from every single bystander who happens to be in your frame? Nice, new one by that British PCSO.

    lol, thanks for enlightenment

    in any case, believe me, i speak for most here as well

    on another note, please note that pcsos are not real police officers, they are given much less power

    in fact, based on our dear wikipedia, i'm not even sure if the pcso had the right to even order anyone to do anything. pcsos are another sore point here, i remember reading some rant about it in the papers.. and it seems as if they have gotten some flak before.

    And i think this is a nice place to end the discussion since we have gone both left, right and centre and both sides of the fence have been very thoroughly explored....

    Lets move on shall we?

    Do you remember the link?

    I've been threatened by the tenant of the building I'm shooting on the road before. But I know I'm not breaking any law, just walk away to avoid argument. Some people worse, threaten to call police

    Reminds me of the time I stupidly pulled out my camera to attempt to take a picture while going through customs at changi airport. A security officer hauled me out for questioning, but he was polite and he let me off with a warning after I said that no picture was taken.

    f/8 and be there.

    Ask them to call the police, there is no law against it, as long as you take from a public area (like a road side opposite a bldg).

    Will try to find the link......

    By the way: If you do need to take pics from a building site (e.g. from the front of a bldg), that area may be property of that bldg, I am not sure, anyway, if you MUST take from their premises you can always ask for permission beforehand by letter.......

    An example of private area is the whole groundfloor area around the offices at Suntec City, it's the offices at the back where they have the water 'fountain wall' running over glass, and a side entrance to the shopping mall, there is also a taxi stand there. That area is all private, I took my large format with tripod there, had to write in my name on a record book, and that's all. I was then allowed to take pics anywhere! But this was 6-7 years ago :-)

    Now times and rules may have changed......

    precisely... I think it is just one misguided person who overstepped on her authority we are talking about here, not the local authorities... no need to get too excited... and this comes from a person who allowed a "concerned" citizen in Singapore to call the police to come check up on his taking of pictures ...

    p.s. the police seemed abit sheepish when they did turn up... they were just doing their job and I guess its not the first time they were called up for such...
