- If you use a digital camera, take several memory cards rather than one big one (then, if your camera is lost or stolen, you won’t lose all your pictures).
- If you use rechargeable batteries, you will also need a charger (and a transformer if the charger cannot handle 220 volts).
- Photography (or the use of flashes) is prohibited in some sites, for copyright reasons or to protect art.
- Use discretion in what you photograph. Taking pictures of military personnel or facilities is often forbidden. Don’t take close-up photographs of Muslim women with covered faces or Orthodox Jewish men or women without first asking.
