Filming In Progress

I blew this shot and I should know better (focus issues).
I took one quick shot just in case the crew decided to get all up in my face.
That would be unusual but not unheard of, I've been conditioned to expect it.
I don't even mind arguing with them if it comes to that.  
From now on I resolve to take as much time as it takes.

They are on public place I guess, so you should be able to take as many photos as you like?

Section 2B in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.... freedom of the press and other media of communication. Those folks are standing on public property and are fair game. When I run into this I first ask if they are Canadian citizens and believe in our Charter.That usually puts an end to it when I quote the 2b section and add a little explanation on where I'm not free to photograph. Now it also helps that I'm big and mean enough looking that folks generally leave me alone anyway.

They often seem to have a huge sense of entitlement don't they?

The only time I've been told I couldn't shoot photos was in Denver...there were some beautiful tall buildings with beautiful reflections in the glass...I got in fairly close...on a plaza in front of the buildings which according to the security guard was private property. But the reason he gave me for not allowing me to shoot the photos was because I could be casing the joint to see about blowing up the was probably close to 5 years after 9/ I guess they were still a bit jittery. I gave him my card and assured him I had no such intent...but he made me leave anyway. The good thing was that I already had gotten some great shots!! After that I looked up the photographer's rights and copied the page that spelled out what could be shot, and carried it in my camera case.
