Akhi that issue is totally different. I know image making (drawing) is forbidden in general. Expectation are as you've mentioned above. I've read fatawa about this, so e.g biology drawing etc are permissible as long as you need them for school or educational purposes. However, I am not talking about drawing. Drawing ≠ Photography.
I think if you take what our Ummah is doing as reference, you won't never get authentic evidence. Only because the majority do something, it doesn't proof the rightness of an act. You can see that in Muslim countries they ignore many obligatory things. When we stay on our issue, when we analyse all pictures in newspapers or in television, we'll figure out rapidly, our beloved Ummah don't respect the views of scholars; all that series contains mainly haram content. In newspaper you can see haram pictures. So what the majority of the Ummah is doing can obviously not used as evidence.
According to islamqa.com filming is permissible (http://islamqa.info/en/88180
) as long as they are free of evils.
- My question rather was: What when we take pictures of nature and use a human as composition to make the picture more interesting - but only with the expectation you can't see the face of this person. Let's say you only can see him from behind.
- I intend to make documentaries or/and wildlife videos
. I cannot think of any restrictions in that as long as the documentaries don't contain any evil. Do I understand that correctly?
Scimitar: How do you deal with music? It's undoubtedly forbidden, but is there a good alternative to music to design the video, except Quran recitation?
