Nov 22nd 2009 9:55PM Loved this post, Scott -- this is some great advice. When I met Marcus, he was living in Dublin, and I was living in Scotland. We never lived in the same city until we got married.
That was 7-1/2 years ago, and we remain happily married.

Great question, and the answer really lies where you are. If you're taking photographs of strangers, there are certain laws which apply -- but in the US, in general, if you're in public and there's no "expectation of privacy", there's nothing illegal about taking photographs (see more about taking photographs of strangers here: http://www.gadling.com/2009/04/16/through-the-gadling-lens-taking-photographs-of-strangers/) Other countries' laws may vary.
But in general, it's always a good idea to ask permission before taking a shot. I haven't noticed any difference in shooting in different countries, but usually I take photographs of my food and my companions, so it's pretty unlikely that there would be a problem.
And no, I've never had any problems or issues with staff or management, and I take my camera with me everywhere. :)
Thanks for your question!

Keep doing your great work, Patrick. Wonderful capture!
Jun 25th 2009 12:45PM Hi, Willy --
I'm not sure what kind of camera you're using -- an SLR or a point-and-shoot -- but regardless, there should be a way to set your camera to auto focus, set your shutter speed and or aperture on its own, but allow you to adjust your ISO. "Fully manual" generally means that you would adjust each of those yourself (focus, shutter speed, aperture and ISO).
Hope this helps. Email me offline with make and model, and I can see if we can find the manual online and figure it out.

I'm from the Caribbean. Born and raised there. Trust me, this Air Jamaica policy is the first time I've ever heard of a local airline doing this. And it's asinine.
Thanks for your comment!
