    • Hi Connie. I’ve seen the word license used before in regards to artistic exploration from Diane Arbus and several other well known art photographers. It’s as if having a camera gives you license. If you are photographing people, they will do things for you that they would not normally do. The presence of the camera makes them want to explore with you…to willingly become your accomplice in art.
