Tips for Photography in Tibet

Tibet is a magical and marvelous place offering endless photo opportunities to all the travellers. Here are some helpful tips for travellers for taking photos in Tibet.

In order to take satisfying pictures of Tibet, tourists must first make careful preparations.

1.) Prepare enough memory sticks as you definitely will shot a lot.

2.) As people may feel weak at high altitudes, it is not encouraged to take too much photographic equipment.

3.) Extra batteries are advised, as battery life shortens considerably in low temperatures.

4.) A UV lens will be very useful to protect your camera from the strong ultraviolet radiation.

5.) If it is possible, take a small tabled-tripod and photoflash lamp which will bring you much more fun for your photography.

When taking photos you must respect Tibetan customs.

1)In some areas, people believe that it is inauspicious to have their photo taken, so ask first for permission of the people you want to photograph.

2) Respect the person you invite to take picture and avoid to disturb them. If it is necessary, you can give them some small gift, which is better than giving them money.

3) In some monasteries, it is offensive to take photos, especially photos of statues in the shrine. Sometimes, a certain amount of money should be paid.

4) Do not take photos secretly in these places. It may bring about unexpected troubles and even be against local regulations.

5) In Lhasa, maybe there are some avaricious guys asking you for money when you take pictures in public places. You can refuse to pay money strictly.
