What To Do About Badpeople?

Sun Dec 08, 2002 4:20 pm

I had a shot rejected for badpeople and I knew it would probably happen, and frankly I can't argue with it.

But I want to know what to do about the person in my shot. Is it acceptable to blur out his face? I just did that and reuploaded the shot.

If a screener would like to look at the shot in the queue, it's named "spdDSC04259.jpg"

Nope no blurring is permissable.

sometimes you just have to wait for an aweful long time to get a shot. I waited for about 20 minutes at Adelaide once for the crowd to move from in fromnt of a Mirage. Even just sat on the Tarmac and waited for them to disperse. Got close about 5 times but always one straggler walked slow enough to give another time to walk into view  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Badpeople? Stop taking pictures of Iraqi Airlines planes with Saddam in the background.

I quite agree that you have to be patient. Sometimes, a human being may enhance the picture. Is the policy just designed to promote better pictures, or is there a degree of legal protection here too?

I've seen some real vintage shots (taken before even I was born) that feature people. Is this because of the rarity value or the likelihood that they're probably no longer with us I wonder.

Just been looking at a slide of an Ansett 727 (at Perth??) from 1969 taken by my dad, but I think the people are too distant, hopefully....
