Well it has begun. Is this a new thing that will be happening across the country and throughout the world? Photographers wont allowed to take photos in public without a expensive permit? https://petapixel.com/2017/06/09/laguna-beach-requires-100-permit-kind-photo-shoot-public/ This is an absolute joke. Crap like this more and more is turning me off from enjoying photography. Will DSLRs (or "big cameras") become banned from public and can only be used with a permit or on private property? I'm afraid someday I'll get in trouble for shooting with my DSLR because of its size and that I'll get fined or ticketed because I have a "big camera" and not using my phone or a dinky point and shoot. They certainly are making it harder and harder for us photographers.
