Starting with Sanctuary's "Something Wicked This Way Comes" Hallowe'en party I'll be changing things in the photo booth a little bit (but not much, don't worry.) After many years of struggling with release forms that have never really been necessary anyway, I'm simply going to have some signage, such as the one to the right, stating, "Entering the photo area constitutes permission to be photographed and grants the photographer exclusive and full rights to the photograph(s)." Without getting into a bunch of legalese, this is really just restating the reality of stepping into an obvious photo area to have your picture taken.
I'll still do prints for people who don't want to appear on the web and let them watch me delete the photo as I have always done.
Another new thing that I am going to try, is allowing people to pre-pay for digital copies. I'll have a sheet where a person for recording their e-mail address and then I will send the photo to them. Having the higher-resolution pictures available on the site hasn't really been working out since the hoops I have in place to keep just anyone from buying prints or hi-res copies of just anybody do make it a bit of pain in the ass for legit buyers. Hopefully this will make it easier... but if it does turn out to be too much of a pain in the ass for *me* I may drop it. And since Hallowe'en is my busiest night of the year, I'm going to know right away if this flies or not.
