Separate consent forms have been designed to provide explicit, active written consent for photo, audio, and video recording. Capturing someone’s image is more invasive than other forms of research. By signing the photo, audio, video consent form,participants indicate that they are fully aware of the type of data that will be collected.
Passive consent. Participants are informed of the study, and are considered to agree to participate unless they specifically decline to be included in the study. This procedure is often used in schools that send forms to parents asking them to allow their students to participate in various studies or activities. Although it yields high participation rates, it should be limited to completely innocuous research (typically not involving minors). It is acceptable for participant observation (ethnographic) projects.
Free consent forms are offered on this page. More than sixty consent forms are selected for personal use and free download. The large collection of consent forms covers abortion consent forms, interview consent form, drug test consent form and so on, including this photography consent form.
To be informed, consent must be given by persons who are competent to consent, have consented voluntarily, are fully informed about the research, and have comprehended what they have been told. Unless they are emancipated minors, individuals under 18 may never give consent. Also question the legal competence of people affected by mental illness, or institutionalized in the prison system. If a person is not legally competent to give consent, a parent or legal guardian has to give it. The participant may still give assent.
