PS: As an aside, is some sort of permission slip / release authorization required from individuals like this to post their photos on the Internet?
Laws vary greatly from country to country.
My personal thought is if I am going to get paid for/or publish a photo I take the subject should know.
Also be sensitive about shooting others. If they look uncomfortable, stop.
I asked her permission to take her picture. I don't know if a "model release" form is required but I imagine this girl has plenty of pictures on Facebook.
In the USA, I've read that a model release is only required if the image will be used for commercial purposes. However, a model release is always a good idea to protect the photographer from other liabilities.
My understanding is that in the USA there's also the reasonable expectation of privacy to consider. This image is probably fine but shooting someone in a public place (AKA the street) is the safest solution. Shooting someone on private property—especially their own property is pretty questionable from a legal perspective.
Good casual portrait. Great smile!
check out the latest finding by the NY courts, you do have a reasonable expectation of privacy as in your own home if you have the curtains open and the person does not enter your property.
