A note about Releases/Una nota sobre Releases:

Privacy issues typically arise when an image is used for purposes of trade or advertising. That is, it’s not the picture, but how it is used that determines the need for a release. If you are on an advertising assignment, you will need to collect releases from every person in your shots. You are always better off if you have permission to photograph your subjects and can prove it.

Problemas de privacidad se producen generalmente cuando se utiliza una imagen con fines comerciales o publicitarios. Es decir, que no es la imagen, sinocómo se utiliza lo que determina la necesidad de un Release, si estás en una asignación de publicidad, tendrás que obtener versiones de cada persona que sale en tus fotografías.

El Release/contrato que obtengas debe ser guardado por siempre y deben estar vinculados de alguna manera con las fotografías a que se refieren. Puedes esperar que te la pidan cada vez que necesites licencia para una imagen, y lo necesitarás si alguna vez tienes que defenderte en corte.

But this will vary, depending on the photographer and the model.

El fotógrafo debe estudiar cuidadosamente el contrato de la PTF antes de hacer que la modelo lo firme. Si hay planes para utilizar las imágenes comercialmente, el contrato de PTF debe tener una cláusula en la que La modelo da los consentimientos para el uso comercial de las fotos

 Terms and Conditions

 

  1. It is understood that this Photographer/Studio is the exclusive official photographer retained to perform the photographic services requested on this Contract.
  2. Studio/Photographer may substitute another photographer to take the photographs in the event of Studio/Photographer’s illness or of scheduling conflicts. In the event of such substitution, Studio/Photographer warrants that the photographer taking the photographs shall be a competent professional.
  3. No part of any order, including previews, will be delivered until the balance is paid in full.
  4. The Studio/Photographer reserves the right to use images created under this contract for advertising, display, publication, or other purposes. The client signing this contract warrants that he/she has actual authority to agree to the use of the likeness of all persons included in the portrait in this manner and shall indemnify and defend the Studio/Photographer in the event of litigation arising out of such use. Negatives, digital files, and previews remain the exclusive property of this Studio/Photographer.
  5. Upon signature, the Studio/Photographer shall reserve the time and date agreed upon. Unless the Studio is able to fully replace the cancelled reservation, all sitting fees and deposits are non-refundable, even if the portrait is rescheduled or cancelled for any reason other than inclement weather.
  6. If, in the opinion of photographer, inclement weather or other adverse conditions prevent the creation of a portrait meeting the artistic standards of the Studio/Photographer, the photographer may elect to use an alternative location or reschedule the portrait.
  7. If the Studio/Photographer cannot perform this contract due to fire or other casualty, strike, act of God, or other cause beyond the control of the parties, or due to photographer’s illness or emergency, then the photographer shall return any deposit or sitting fee to the client but shall have no further liability with respect to the Contract. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera or media malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the photographer. In the event that the Studio/Photographer fails to perform for any other reason, the Studio/Photographer shall not be liable for any amount in excess of the retail value of the Client’s order.
  8. Client is aware that color dyes in photography may fade or discolor over time due to the inherent qualities of the dyes, and Client releases the Photographer from any liability for any claims whatsoever based upon fading or discoloration due to such inherent qualities.
____________________________________________________________________________
The Right to Publicity:  Los Derechos a Publicidad:
For photographers and their clients, the right of publicity can become a problem when people become celebrities after you have taken their picture. It can especially be a problem with crowd scenes. Rights of privacy, which die with the persons to whom they belong, rights of publicity survive their owners and can be passed along for generations.

Property owners’ rights: Derechos de Propiedad:  Privacy and defamation cannot apply to objects (although defamation can apply to business entities). Things — cars, buildings, statuary, costumes, animals, etc. don’t have legal rights. But the people who are closely associated with those objects do have rights and could claim that your photo of their property has caused harm. 

 

Digital Manipulation:  Manipulación Digital:   Nowadays it is routine to alter colors, morph shapes and assemble scenes by compositing portions that were separately shot. Your release should state that the subject gives permission for this to occur, and because Photoshopping has become a normal aspect of advertising photography, it should be included in all your contracts.       “I hereby release Photographer from any liability by virtue of any blurring, distortion, alteration, optical illusion, or use in composite form, whether intentional or otherwise, that may occur or be produced in the taking of such photographs or in any subsequent processing of them.”

Depending on the model’s concerns (and the client’s needs, of course), you may need to accept certain limits on the digital reworking that may be done. For instance,      “However, this compositing or distortion shall be done only by Photographer or by persons working under the direct supervision of Photographer, and it will be limited to images and image components that are photographed on the same day.”

___________________________________________________________________________

Hoy en día es rutinario modificar los colores, formas y escenas que fueron tomadas en partes separadas. Tu Release debe indicar que el tema da permisopara que esto ocurra, y porque photoshop se ha convertido en un aspecto normalde la fotografía publicitaria, debe incluirse la frase que aparece arriba, en todos tus contratos.

“ libero de toda responsabilidad a El fotógrafo en virtud de cualquier visión borrosa, distorsión, alteración, ilusión óptica, o el uso en forma compuesta, ya sea intencional o no, que puede ocurrir o ser producida en la toma de dichas fotografías o de cualquier tratamiento posterior de ellos. ”

Dependiendo de las preocupaciones de la modelo (y las necesidades del cliente,por supuesto), es posible que tenga que aceptar ciertos límites en lareformulación digital . Por ejemplo:

“Sin embargo, esta composición o distorsión se llevará a cabo únicamente por El fotógrafo o por las personas que trabajan bajo la supervisión directa del fotógrafo, y se limitará a las imágenes y los componentes de imagen que se fotografió en el mismo día.”
