You guys are right. I am wrong. Whatever. I know what a business is, because I run one. I know what donations are because I take them, outside of my business. Taking donations does not make you a business, by law. Saying Donation=5$ does. Because then you are charging, not accepting whatever someone wants to give, even if it's nothing. All I am saying is it seemed to me that she posted ligitimately an offer to do free work, since she was already planning to do so for other people, and now she is being told she's a business. IMO, she was not trying to undercut an established merchant, simply saying if anyone else wants their pictures taken by her...for free...she would do it.
Why do I care...because it seemed like a friend of mine was being judged unfairly for doing something just about anyone with a camera would do. For doing something people have done for years with weapons, gear, food, drink, garb and what have you.
Also I would go to Rag, if I could guarentee that one particular person woud not be there. Because if that person were to be there, and he is every year, I will get myself kicked out for being a jerk. Just wanted to say where I was coming from. Like I said, you all do what you will. I just think she was judged unfairly, that is all.
