I found this good photoshop tutorial today, and wanted to share it with you all:

The method requires thinking ahead, and having a tripod and possibly a remote shutter release on hand, so it's not for every situation, but I can see where it could be a help.

On my travels I would swear that there's a guy who follows me from landmark to landmark, wearing a bright red shirt and standing smack in front of whatever I want to photograph! The precious minutes of travel time I have wasted, waiting for him to move out of the way! And while I'm waiting, I'm of course blocking the perfect shot of the person behind me...

Perhaps we could just all agree to be more cognizant and courteous, we could see what we came to see, get the shots we want and use our time more efficiently?

That's an interesting article, but also a lot of work. The author gives a very good example, but somehow I like his photo with tourist better than the one without because with the tourists it is more natural.

These days (and I suppose it is because more people take (digital) photos) many people are more caring about others and try not to obstruct the view, or wait before walking on until another tourists has taken the photo.

Very handy(takes a lot of work though).

@whereisliz - what makes "unwanted" tourists in my photos worse is that they have a tendency to LOOK at the camera whenever I'm already taking the shot, whether for the scenery or if I'm taking a photo with an actual person.

Thanks for sharing

Do you need to obtain a release from people in an image you publish on the internet?
