Taking pictures of people

When/if I take a picture of a person/people, how do I go about doing that? Would one just approach and say "can I take your photo?", or what is the proper protocol for that sort of situation?

Are there any legal liabilities involved?

I think its a little taboo to be taking pictures of people you dont know, i think you should go out with your family and freinds and capture some memories with them.

I've done that before, I was in the park and a father was with his three kids feeding the ducks and I just took a few shots; THere were lots of people around and I didn't really ask; but it's not like I published anything. I guess it depends on if the person is the subject or just in the scene.

Usually you can snap a few without notice but you may run into problems if you use the image for anything other than personal use.

Check out this thread Tim posted. Good info to know.

Personally if Im out I give my card to the people and tell them what Im doing and offer a copy of prints if they are ok with it. I just explain Im a rookie trying out my hand. It may be easier for me as a woman. Moms arnt as threatened by me. Plus I usually have my kids too.
