The news is in

The first baby of the year was born on Jan 4, a baby boy! I like his unique name, Csanád (pronounced chah-nad) . Sorry, I have no direct link to the photo of the baby. He is of course adorable. Oh, the mother shared an interesting story with the reporter..

"I had kept the gender of the baby a secret from the rest of the family. But everyone has already guessed that it would be a boy as my stomach was pointy and turns out they were spot-on!"
Happy birthday, Csanád!

ps. Someone commented in NYDP (Ming's) that s/he feels "creepy" about taking photos of children discreetly especially without their parents. Which prompte me to ask the moral question. Perhaps I should ask for permission in the future; however, it would means no more candid shots, hmm..what do you guys think?

I sometimes feel odd taking childrens pictures too. that's why a lot of my pictures of people are from the back. It really is a moral dilemma.

As a parent I don't want strangers posting photos of my children (with or without my knowledge). But I do think that children are a great subject - so much expression, energy, and innocence - and have posted some photos of kids after asking their parent.

More and more I find myself in public places trying to include people in photos because sometimes they make a photo a lot better. And children are so expressive and open, its hard not to want to photograph them. I think people in general don't want to be photographed because they think they will look bad or you'll make them look foolish. So I try to never put a picture on the blog that makes someone look bad or ridiculous or to make fun of them.

I don't ask permission most of the time but if they indicate they don't want to be photographed, either verbally or by how they act, then I don't. And mostly they're at a distance or at turned away from the camera. I think you can be sued in the US if they are recognizable.

Is taking a photograph of people in pubic an invasion of privacy? I think that's the issue.

Like Louz, I find photos with human is lively and is very hard not to be tempted to push the zoom button.

I think I already knew the answer to my question , but just trying to justify what I did. I guess it is some sort of invasion of privacy.

Thank you all for your valuable input :)

I just don't bother with people in shots intentionally any more. I love photos with people, but I can't reach a conclusion about whether to ask permission, (and like you say, no candids) or just shoot. I'm especially nervous about children. Sad, really.

that's really the main reason why i tend to shy away from people shots ... like what louz pointed out. but if they do happen to be in the "way" (or they make the shot look "nicer"), i make sure that the face isn't recognizable, or do some post processing. :)
