    Default Taking photo in hotel lobby

    Hi,

    Any experience phtg can advise if its ok to take pictures in a hotel lobby esp if you are one of the staying guest of the hotel.
    I believe most hotel allow using tourist type PnS camera,
    how about using Dslr, speedlite, tripod etc ?

    Appreciate sharing your experience here.

    Thanks

    check with the concierge.

    personally, they usually wont bother since the lobby is pretty much a common area unless your setup is causing a problem.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    Mostly fine, esp if its 1:1 with exception to some picky ones like Scarlett Hotel, Pan Pacific, etc. If I shoot in lobbys I'll just act all touristy for the heck of it, both hands parallel to the shutter, etc Just don't bring your lightstands, umbrellas, softboxes etc

    my intented setup is dslr + wireless speedlite with lambency on a tripod.
    plus the model of course

    not sure this is considered as too "flashy".

    Honestly, you'd need to get permission from the hotels MGT to shoot a model, indicate which agency you're from, reason etc in case anything goes wrong, so they can bust you. Last I did with lightstands, etc I paid 600bucks for that permission. Of course, you can always pass the model off as your gf and just shoot.
