    I am (very)new to photography, and was wondering where I can't take my camera?

    Are public places fine like on a beach?

    Basketball/sports games?

    Concerts?

    I always thought it was fine everywhere, but listening to some podcasts and recent news articles I have found otherwise.

    Thanks

    I would have thought public places would be fine, unless stated otherwise through signs or asked by members of the public. Concerning the basketball/sports games and concerts, i would say depends on the venue and the promoters, sometimes at events you are not allowed a DSLR (well i wasn't, i was asked to hand it over and pick it up after the event). hope that helps you in some way :)

    As long as you don't photograph somewhere that is clearly a secret establishment of some sort or take a photograph of someone who has a 'reasonable expectation of privacy' you can take pretty much anywhere.

    Areas where you might be asked not to take photo's ( or need to obtain permission ) are generally indoors.

    Shopping malls are wary of 'industrial esponage' so permission is needed. Concerts may have limitations, indoors sports events often need permission granting ( although ironically outdoors doesn't ). Kids are find to photograph but be warey, don't be sneaky around them and it's best to get parental permission.

    When I went to Italy is was very common for churches, cathedrals, chapels, & museum's to disallow photography of any kind.
