“Keep your equipment simple. I usually just carry a SLR with a couple of fixed lenses – maybe a 50mm and 35mm lens. Also, in some cities security can be an issue. Carrying lots of gear can attract unwanted attention.

Try to respect people‚Äôs culture and religions. For example, some Jewish people don’t like being photographed on the Sabbath. Also, perhaps ask if it’s ok to shoot near a mosque, synagogue or temple. And be very careful photographing women in particular.”
