Naughty but nice, Kalypso. Counts with me (after I noticed the fence).

Isn't that a freight elevator door?

Nice shot. Oh! Is there a fence in the picture? I didn't notice! That does look kinda like a freight elevator safety gate.

My only question is do you have a signed model release authorizing you to publish this photo? I know there are a lot of glamour photos posted in the portrait forum but I seldom go there. Consequently, I don't know what they do about releases. Any legal beagles out there feal free to post your opinion.

OK this is off topic but you bring up a question I've been meaning to ask somewhere in these forums and haven't yet. If you buy an antique photograph such as a tintype or glass plate, do you have the right to reproduce it?

OK, I am speculating here. Several things come into play here:
  • Is the name of the photographer known?[/*]
  • Is he/she still alive?[/*]
  • Is there a copyright notice on the original print?[/*]
If the answer to those questions are all "no", then I would think the original print would be in the public domain and could be freely reproduced. If any of the answers is yes, then more research is in order. You would need to do the following:
  • Locate the photographer or kin of the photographer.[/*]
  • If there is a copyright, is it still valid and if so who owns it?
    [/*]
I think, in most cases, you probably will not be able to identify the photographer and there will be no copyright. In this case, I think the photo would fall into the public domain.

I am not a copyright expert nor am I a lawyer so don't quote me on any of this.

Calm down guys.......I took it in an old sock warehouse in Ft. Payne, AL. It is indeed a freight elevator gate & the model is Jana (& I do have a release & own the copyright...see, I took another one)!

I think you misunderstood. My comments on copyright, etc., were directed to bill.guenthner who asked the OT question regarding copying old tintypes and deguerrotypes (sp?).
