At an airshow recently I got a shot of an Antonov An-30, a cargo plane with an old-fashioned glass nose. Could have been this very aircraft: My shot is a close-up from the nose from directly ahead. The aircraft was open to the public at the time and what I did not realise as I took my shot was that a boy had sat down in the nose seat. It takes you a moment to realise he's there, but his face is clearly visible through the central window. I got another shot from the same angle with the seat empty, but the shot with the boy in it has more impact: he provides a focal point that is missing in the other shot. I don't normally do people shots so I'm not very familiar with the ethics. My understanding is (correct me if I'm wrong) that you can take photos of people without their consent, provided that they are for editorial use only. But does this apply to children, or are the rules different where minors are concerned?
