This article just got posted on C|Net, and it's discussing the increasing usage of amateur camera snapping at music events. It says that the camera policy is usually set by the band (and not by the venue), and that more and more bands now have an open camera policy (like NiN).
Since the Trappas already have an open recording policy and many of the live performances can now be found on Archive.org, I wonder why don't you guys go open-camera too, and make it official? I mean, it's not like you discourage the idea, since your web front page has these FlickR pics that people snap at your shows. ;-)
I personally prefer video because I can't take good pictures without flash (not with the small-sensor camera I had with me at the last BT show I was at anyway). Because I know how annoying flash can be for the musicians, I prefer to not snap pics at all, and just go for video snaps instead (few seconds of each song). The last time I tried to do that at BT's SF show, I was stopped by the venue staff at the beginning of the show.
So, what do you say? If that's all acceptable, could it be possible to make it official?
