Thank you all for the advice.
I ask because I was once screamed at by an angry old woman while overseas. Funny thing was I was not shooting her and she was clearly not in the frame. She must have thought my compact camera was "super-duper" wide angle.
Since the incident, I've been very careful with using my camera in crowded areas lol.
Snap*, look at them, smile, ask if you can take more, snap more, say thanks.
*Does not apply to Singaporeans.

What I do sometimes is to predict something might happen at some area, then position my camera there... turn to a small aperture so that everything will be in relative sharpness, and as soon as things happen, I shoot. Well... people cannot blame you for taking their photos because they are the ones who wandered into your frame.
The loopholes in life. Haha. Sometimes I just take but thn I turn away slightly after my camera clicked then the person would not know who I'm shooting :POriginally Posted by rhino123
I will be visiting Singapore in two weeks. Faces of the young or aged can make an excellent portrait. Non staged photos can snap the perfect look.
Is there any Singapore law of taking photos in public especially a young face under age of 10 years. I guess in a private place, like a Zoo or shopping centre, then permission can be enforced
But for shopping centres and other private establishment, it would be up to the management or owners to agree to you shooting at their guests and visitors.
i think there are situations where it is appropriate to take pictures of children playing in the playground, such as when your own child is there.
in the extreme case, some creepy, unkempt guy with a camera snapping randomly at children will probably attract some attention.
