A lack of rigidity limits your options, though.

Oh, I don't know... We have an instance where one CRC (Creep With Camera - and it was a d***** camera, at that) caused an awful lot of suffering to an emerging model by publishing really explicit, crass images of her - taken in a "flurry" of activity - and hiding behind the signed Model Release. I think that it might be a very appropriate final destination for that camera.

BTW Ed, why is it when someone wants to think of puritanical or fundamentalists Utah is brought up...
As far as "Puritanism", I'll call and raise you a *bunch* betting that Ipswich, Mass. FAR exceeds Utah or any place else, for that trait.
The strange part about all this is that the Puritans were actually NOT VERY PURE. I've been part of a group researching the history of this place - and we've been startled by a lot of the "Old Records". In the mid-1600's, there is a Court record of a woman suing her husband for "Denying Her Conjugal Rights"; there is testimony from another, during an Adultery trial, that, "I leaned out of my window, and told them to stop, but they wouldn't listen."
I can only theorize that Nathaniel Hawthorne took great artistic license when he wrote "The Scarlet Letter", and that attitudes like that have shaped the brittle "morality" that we have here today.
Kind of proves my point, doesn't it?

I would NEVER take you for being "stuffy" OR "Puritanical", Aggie.
There is one nude photo at BYU. It was taken on a survivaL class outing near Lake Powell back in the spring of 74. It is of a girl with very long blond hair sitting naked in a rain pool on top of a plateau. She is turned away from the camera, but the back shot is a classic Lady Godiva type image. Well you know what, I didn't see that damn photographer after I had hiked for hours to find a seculuded spot to take a bath. I have the distinction of being the only nude shown at BYU. There now take that for being stuffy and puritan like.
I'll bet that was one truly beautiful photograph!!!

I am conflicted by Aggies statement about where a camera should never be put. One reason for this is it conflicts with the advice I have given a couple of digital photographers..a second reason is who is Aggie to tell someone that a camera and axle grease should never be used for recreation?
