Do you let people take your picture?

If someone posts a really unflattering picture of me I’ll “un-tag” myself so it doesn’t show up for all my friends to see. That works for me..

How about just not doing things that youd would be embarrased if it was photographed? That’s my strategy. 

As a side note, this reminds me of photographing kids at camp. I work with a rare disorder and we have a summer camp for kids. We take pictures throughout the week and then put them in a slideshow that we show parents and campers at the end of the week and everyone gets to take it home on a DVD. So it’s realy important that we have good pictures of all the kids. But there are always a couple kids at camp who decide they don’t want their picture taken and so this year I brought a telephoto lens so I could be all the way across the room and catch them laughing with their friends for a great photo. It’s pretty awesome. My coworkers said I was a photo ninja! I guess the point of this story is just that you can only limit what other people do to a certain degree. Unless you never leave the house, people may and probably will take pictures of you.

I don’t mind, as PP mentioned I don’t do anything I would be embarassed about if a picture ended up online.  When my friend and I went to a Lady Gaga concert we made our own costumes, I think we had our picture taken over 50 times that night while we were at the stadium.

@MrsPanda99:  yes I do, I’m pretty much like whatever lol. I’m not saying there isn’t the possibility that my image could be used in a fashion I don’t agree with or like but I think that to be slim or likely not very damaging at worst. i even see passengers take my picture at work sometimes! Which is a little weird…All that being said I don’t think your wrong Panda, nothing wrong with being cautious!

Why should I let them take my picture?  That picture is mine, and they can’t just walk up and take it.  Get your own pictures for your house, don’t be walking into mine and taking pictures off my wall!

Depends on who and why. I have no issues with telling people to not don’t take my pic or simply walking away.

It actually bothers the hell out of me when my friends won’t let me take their picture. Here I am, documenting this great occasion, and all I have are pictures of your hands covering the entire frame. I can’t even take pictures of others because they freak out about being caught too and try grabbing my phone or camera. Just let me take pictures, dammit! Most recently, I had my 22nd birthday and went out with some friends. I want pictures of our celebration. The only pictures I have are of hands and people purposefully looking away. It makes me sad that any record of these moments are ruined because you can’t just let me get a good picture.

I’m not too crazy about being in pictures that will be uploaded to Facebook, especially the ones that are uploaded right away, announcing where you are exactly, with whom, doing what, at what time, etc. Not that there’s anything to be embarrassed of, but because it creeps me out…

I don’t like having my picture taken, simply becuase I think that I always turn out looking bigger than what I feel I look like IRL. Therefore, I tend to be the one running the camera! If someone tags me in a photo and I don’t like it, I’ll untag myself.

I do post some pictures on Facebook, but I still have plenty of photos hanging around the house and in albums!
