    Photo Development + Law Enforcement Rules

    Discussion started by decs - Nov 30, 2003

    What do you guys do about getting film developed at like 2 hour places?
    I dont have a digital camera and am interested in getting a couple of rolls developed, im just worried about if you have action shots ( even if there are no faces ) can they report the photos and send them in to the police or any sort of anti-graffiti enforcers?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated,
    Hope I put this in the right thread

    Don't be a shadey character, and you won't draw attention. I've had approximately 3000 graffiti photographs developed at the local costco, and they almost know me by name now. The manager once told me after developing 10 or so rolls that the colors were "really astounding this time" and that it was beautiful art. Hope for luck, don't act suspicious, and as long as it's not a shot of you bombing a recognizable store, you should be ok.

    i get my way around this by giving the film to someone else to get developed!
    ha, but seriously..ive never had a problem with this. i know this girl who used to work at a place that did photos. she said they are only told to keep back child pornography pics or anything like that.

    *note, its not illegal to take photos of an illegal activity*

    Don't take incriminating action shots! :idea:

    Buy a digital camera, it's cheaper in the end.

    no, but they could theoretically still be seized as evidence.

    true, but shit happens. someone i know got busted about 6 years ago for doing fr8s, because of a snoopy photo developer. he looked like an average college guy.

    Yeah, this has happened to me a few times too. Did they take the negatives of your photos? Because they've never taken mine.

    no i got the negatives, just not copies of certain pictures. maybe it was nothing, it sucked all the same. but still, i never use a real name when developing pictures.

    ...don't fill the roll with all of your stuff...most people at photo labs can't tell the difference between one burner and another but it's best not to give them a whole roll of one name anyway...i wouldn't suggest sending it out...get it done in one hour instead...if you send it out then it allows more time for people to look at them and possibly confiscate pictures...but if you do them there you can pick them up before they even have a chance to think twice about it...remember most people are lazy and don't give a crap about anyone else...pay with cash...
