One way to shoot people without needing a model release form

posted on 24th of june, 2009

I just want to share in this blog one way to shoot people oriented stock photo without needing a model release form. For those who are new to stock photography, any photo with recognizable persons in it must have an accompanying model release form or else it can be sold only for editorial use.

I have two photos taken last week at farmer market have been accepted by Dreamstime and most other microstock sites as Royalty Free image without needing to fill in a model release form. What I did is to exclude the person's face from the image, and just focus on the activities or action of the person.
