Have you ever setup to take a picture, only to get kicked out by security or police? Ever pointed a camera at someone and had them flip out over you taking a picture?  We'd love to hear from you!

Today on The Grid I will be joined by +Brad Moore  and  +Pete Collins  ​ to talk about our stories on making pictures and having challenges with authorities as well as give you a couple of things you can do (and gear to take) to make the shot, and avoid going to the slammer!  Tune in 4PM EST at http://kelbytv.com/thegrid

The best way is to inform in advance if it's allowed to take pictures, I didn't when I went to Canary Wharf, a major business district in London to take some photo´s and within 5 minutes was asked to leave out by police and security. Apparently some big businesses were there, so it wasn´t allowed to make photo´s (which I didn't know ..)

Photo Scouting with Jet Lag in Dubai

Up entirely too early in #Dubai   - trying to comb the web to find a cool spot to make a picture of the Burj Khalifa.  Oh to comb Google Maps. 

Anyone have any ideas, lemme know!

Yeah - that is what you call "nailing it" - well done +RC Concepcion !!!  I was in Budapest a week ago, out at night, and for some strange reason, RC popped in my head - like, I wish he were here hangin with me!!!

Question - do those two small tripods allow you to go portrait? Thinking the Manfrotto does not, but wanted to see if the other did or if you have other suggestions.

One of our best "The Grid" shows ever, with Ed Greenberg (Attorney who represents photographers who've been ripped off) and Jack Resnicki (photographer's copyright advocate) as our in-studio guests. We talked about everything from model releases to copyright law to how to negotiate in business — just awesome info all the way around! http://youtu.be/MTHaw21XlOA
