Cell Phone Cameras

The cell phone camera has created millions of new photographers worldwide. An offshoot to the advent of cell phone photography is a conflict with privacy issues, although not so much in public venues, but in areas not entirely public, such as bars and restaurants. These are areas where people go to relax, let off steam, meet others, and they expect some level of privacy. With virtually every patron in the bar having a cell phone with camera capability in their possession, privacy in these venues seem to be a thing of the past. Bar patrons need to be cognizant of who is in the background of the photograph taken at the bar. Remember, not everyone is with the person they are supposed to be with, and that may create problems at the scene and beyond.
