I recently read a thread in the www.japan-guide.com forum about photography in Japan. And the thread mentioned something like it's very rude for photographers, amateurs or professionals, to take pictures of someone without permission.
What do you all think? How do you all approach people when you want to take their pictures, can share?
After reading the thread I really feel disheartened cos I'm planning a trip next January to Japan, and I planned to bring along my camera. There are so many things to shoot in Japan, not only the scenaries but the people as well.
For those who had visited Japan, what are your views? Is it really true that Japanese don't like to be photographed at?
And to those foreigners shooting in Singapore, do you face this problem from the locals?
