Do you always ask permission of the subject before you post pictures online? Why or why not?
No, I don’t. Currently, it’s almost expected that if someone takes a picture of you, it will end up on the Internet. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
If someone really does not want me to take their picture, they make a break for the door or cover their face. It’s fairly obvious that they do not want their picture placed anywhere so I don’t take their picture.
I timed how long it takes to get a photograph on the Internet once. It takes me about 5-10 seconds to take a picture. It takes a minute to process it through on Instagram. If you have your Instagram linked to your Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter, you can have the photo posted on all of those accounts in a few seconds. So it takes less than two minutes to get the photo plastered all over the Internet.
