In the USA, you can photography pretty much anyone, in most places when use is editorial.

I have started to write some books, including on street people, who are out and about.

So long as I do not use their image to endorse a product, it falls under editorial/art use and it’s pretty much okay.

Certain other areas, like nudes and children in certain situations a model release is handy.

Here for instance is a link to an eBook, of maternity nudes. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008NR8GUS/?tag =glamourphotog-20 For this, we have a signed model release with government issued ID, etc.

Great answer to all those shamless and ungrateful cynics who keep saying “is desh ka kuch nahi hoga”. Just wanted to know if the lady in question here was okay with being shot while giving birth to a baby. Such a situation for a woman as I know is personal and not many would like to have such pictures published.

Its a good start for the rural women who have had no access to proper health-care. I hope they extend this to all women health issues.

I appreciate his efforts, but next time you want to cover a maternity ward full of birthing ladies, please send a woman.

I can complely understand your point as how you ust have felt being there in thsi 700 people village to record this story, how difficult can it to witness this life changing experince.

That should help your conscience’s conflict.
