    Default Ghost Festival Photography?

    Is it ok to take photos of the ghost festival such as the Ge Tai singing, those ceremony, etc.

    Will it offend people?

    of course before you want to take, ask the organiser of the 歌台 for permission. you might take something instead of human?

    Start a poll "Will the organisers be offended?" , and show the results to the organisers. Tell them it's the common practice, verified and certified by lots of photographers.

    The poll:
    1. "Will the organisers be offended?"
    2. "Will the performers be offended?"
    3. "Will the audience be offended?"
    4. "Will the photographers be offered?"
