Photography Question 
Dodie Pajer
 

Model Release


Do you have to have a signed model release for every person in the photograph? Or only for the people who are clearly the subject of the picture?

Example: You're taking pictures at a parade. You really have a good shot of one of the floats; the woman on the float is recognizable, but she is not the subject of the picture. Do you need a model release from her? Compared to: you've zoomed in on that particular woman to capture her expression. She is clearly the subject of the picture. Do you need a model release from her for this shot?

Thanks!

  I think any recognizable person has to release you. I read that somewhere, but not sure where.
