It doesn't matter if you have been shooting for two weeks or 20 years, most photographers are constantly mulling the question, 'which lens should I buy next?'

Your frustration only gets worse when you find that there seems to be an endless supply of options. Even within the same brand, you can get lost in a sea of f-stops and millimeters. 

Here is an approach to help you understand and simplify the lens selection process.

When do you need a model release? That's the latest question I received from one of our listeners:

"What guidance can you give us regarding releases? Both for people (for instance, if they are potentially identifiable) and locations (for instance, trademarked property, federal property)? I seem to recall this gets complicated. What if it’s a crowd such as demonstrators in DC? Assuming a release is required, as a practical matter do you obtain it during the shoot?"

Peering out the window of a coffee shop, I saw a very familiar process unfolding. People were arriving with big signs. I saw what looked like costumes, and over time a small crowd started assembling. In Washington, DC, that usually means a protest is about to start. It also means prime photography opportunities. 

No time to finish my coffee, I grabbed my DSLR and headed out to the park to start my shoot.

Whether you happen upon a protest demonstration or even a parade, you have a perfect opportunity to practice street photography that tells stories.
