Yeah, I see what you guys mean. I just happen to be very self-conscious, and my wife is the same way. It could be because we both are extremely handsome and beautiful.
Seriously though, I am sure they would honor your anonymity request if you were say, testifying as a witness to something or asked an opinion on the street.
I'm just wondering about these random shots and all of a sudden you are watching TV and you see yourself.....
Case in point. A million years ago when I was in the National Guard we had a training weekend and back then urban warfare training was a relatively new concept as we were in the post Vietnam/Cold War era and our training is usually concentrated on jungle and forest terrain in Europe.
Anyway, we were trying to clear these buildings and as we got up to storm the buildings, I almost tripped and fell with the M-60 machine gun I was carrying.
F*ck, nobody said anything about us being filmed. On TV that afternoon, it showed me on closeup on KITV news fire the gun then get up, run, and almost go head first into the dirt.
I knew there was a news team covering this new training we were doing but I thought they were just gonna talk to the Lieutenant or something, which they did but also took footage of us running around.
My wife mentioned something like "Hey, you almost fell down..." and I shot back "I know, but I didn't, ok?" My face turned red even though I'm dark skinned.
