    mainstream articles usually are "uninterested" in such topics, unless something big like a security guard assaulting a photographer for taking photos.

    writing in to ST forum may get a reply on the papers though

    Whatever the final written report will be, it's good to create public awareness about the 'rules of engagement' and shooting rights of photographers.

    If the report is positive and it states clearly that photographers do have a right to take pictures in public places/ buildings and shall not be harassed, I will laminate the report and keep it in my wallet all the time. Of cos I must take care not to fold into yeobt's face lah, haha

    I'm guessing that if the article is really published... it will focus on Chinatown cases that yeobt mentioned, maybe on the "photography fees"... dun think they will even mention double standards or the law aspect.

Apologies if this has been asked b4

    cheers

    has it happened for you? i think it sounded foolish for the waiter to do that. most would be even delighted to help customers take photograph. in the matter of service (different from the security guard), it would be stupid of the waiter to interfere. that is unless you are blocking a busy walkway or going too near their kitchen.

    hi

    yes it has happened to me b4 but it would not be nice if i am to mention the name of the restaurant. not much of an issue to me. but i just brought it up to know the advise/comments from the other photographer which is vy much appreciated.

    thanks

    Cheers

    i bring my dslr to restaurants for family dinners.
    i shoot like there's no tomorrow.

    i even take pictures of the dishes before my family digs in.

    had never been stopped before.

    if i'm ever stopped, i'll give them hell.
    just because i'm holding a professional dslr, that doesnt mean i will use the images commercially or copy the presentation of their dishes.duh....

    one more interesting point for debate is that, have you guys ever noticed, that it's usually OK for photography with idiot pns cam compared to a big-in-your-face eos mk1 or d3x?

    comon,
    a pns can even have better resolution than a dslr.
    and if i'm a terrorist, of course i would rather carry a pns as opposed to a d3x with 70-200 afs.

    dont these people use their brains?
