It seems like you can’t go anywhere without seeing someone whip out their mobile device and snap a pic. It’s now the norm. But just because you can doesn’t mean you should. There used to be an etiquette as to when and where it was appropriate to take a photo. Here’s IT Girl’s take on when you should reconsider:
No photography means no cell phone photography either. Trust me, I so wanted to whip out my iPhone when I saw Princess Diana’s royal wedding dress on display at a special exhibit. But I wasn’t going to fool anyone by attempting to sneak a pic—and it would have been a terrible photo anyway.
While it might be OK to snap a picture of a shirt you like in a big box store, local shops or craft fairs may not like photos taken of their merchandise-–especially if it’s handmade. Ask before you shoot. Or ask if you can find the item on their website.
Whether it’s a concert, a protest, or a parade, you risk losing your cell phone in the shuffle. Not to mention the fact that you may get stepped on or pushed because you’re not paying attention. And all for what? A crappy photo with barely any zoom.blog comments powered by Disqus
