: I'm a photographer in Chicago and I recently took pictures of a Parade. Some were from far away and some were close-ups of individuals. I would like to make postcards and posters out of some of them. Do I need Model releases?

Dear Mr. Knight,

You should be complimented for your caution. Without taking any professional responsibility for this answer, it is my belief that the picture has a news value and is not a direct exploitation of the people involved, as such there may be no problem. The individual photos are a bigger risk.
