Im not categorically against photographing people. Sports action is ok. Im sure all the team players know there are cameras on them and can expect no less. Especially when they miss that goal or during some other exciting moment. Besides that the faces are usually in some contorted position to make them unrecognizable even to their own mothers. Whether people in the street are shot favorably or unfavorably is not the point. Its whether anyone has the right to stick a camera in your face, take your picture and post it on the internet and being treated like you are nothing more than a tree or a table. And who is to decide what is favorable or unfavorable? Perhaps that woman doesnt want the world to see her without her makeup on.
