– If you are standing on public property, you are allowed to take the pictures of an adjacent private property. For example, if a building is visible from a park, you can take a picture of it. It is an absolutely fair game.

– If you are standing in private property and are approached by the owner or caretaker and was told not to take pictures, you should honor that request. These include signage not to take photos.

– There are government bases or buildings like nuclear facilities and military compounds that will prohibit people from taking pictures. You also have to honor this because it might be a threat to the country’s security.

– You can photograph people if they are in a public place even without their consent. This is why paparazzi exist.

– You can photograph the following structures or incidents when happening in public places despite contrary opinions: criminal activities, accidents, fire fighting scenes, bridges and other infrastructures, industrial facilities, transportation facilities, public utilities, commercial and residential buildings, law enforcement officers, celebrities, and UFOs.

– Many people especially celebrities oppose the idea of having their photos taken in public and make security as the reason.
