"Hey, you can't take pictures here!" Anyone who has worked as a photographer has probably run into this situation at least once. Although situations where you are told to stop taking photos are rare, they do occur. Far more often it's just a suspicious, "What are you doing," or "Why are you taking pictures?" There seems to be a lot of misconceptions about what can be photographed, who can restrict photography and who can take pictures of certain events.

It's easy to get all worked up when a senseless terrorist attack occurs. The attacks in New York on 9/11 or the recent attacks in Paris stir us and make us want to fight for freedom.
Nearly 240 years ago, something amazing happened: A young, upstart territory decided to separate from one of the most powerful nations in the world to form an independent country. With...
This country can be an insane, mixed-up place, full of contradictions and disorder. Unfortunately, our schizophrenia seems to be only getting worse. One had only to watch the news the last two weeks, after the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri, to see this lunacy clearly demonstrated. I expected to see rioting there – possibly even if the decision went the other way – but I was a little surprised to see the ridiculous reactions across the country. Yet, considering the state of our collective mental health, I probably shouldn’t be surprised.
