Photographer sued Steven Spielberg

An interesting legal debate started when Steven Spielberg (employees) didn’t allow a photographer to take paparazzi photos of a movie shooting on the streets of New York. Security guards did everything they could to prevent photographing the movie shooting. They installed blockades, canvases, privacy screens and held umbrellas in front of the photographer to block his view. Photographer in return sued the movie company for infringing First amendment rights as New York streets are private property and it is part of freedom of speech to take photos of things happening on the streets.

Tips and tricks for photographing airplanes

I don’t like to go into sophistry in photo techniques. Firstly because so many other photographers do it, I don’t want to join the queue. Secondly, there are so many different views and approaches one cannot expect everyone to follow the same rules all the time and think everyone is mistaken for doing things in a different way.

Watch out for your gear at Sziget Festival too

Few days ago I wrote about the photo gear theft at Hungaroring photo centre last weekend and I wouldn’t want to come back to he theft topic again. However I have to write about this too. At Sziget Festival you should also watch out for your valuables. In the big crowd it is just as easy to loose something accidentally as it is possible to run into thieves and get things stolen.
