Looking for tips to stay within photography etiquette guidelines when traveling. I love exploring cultures with my camera, including my own rural environment, but don’t want to be offensive at the same time. Often times I find that we are “same but different” in many aspects and appreciate the uniqueness of experiences. I have found that purchasing or tipping generously will often provide plenty of photo opportunities, but my experience with a variety of cultures is limited.
I’m reaching out to others in the world that have travel photography experience to offer suggestions to best document the experiences but be within the realm of common courtesy. Which cultures are particularly difficult or easygoing to document?
