<center><span style="color:orange">[[Commons:WikiProject Arts]] / Conditions for '''Taking photographs''' in museums, collections, churches, etc. limited to visual arts</center></code></div>

Mission: Provide information about museum photography where and under what circumstances photographs can be taken in galleries, museums, etc.

Everyone is invited to contribute!

== Tips and tricks ==

* Visit the site at times when it's least frequented (avoid disturbing people in front of the lens and behind).
* Most religious buildings allow taking photographs but make sure that no faces of worshippers are captured (esp. in the islamic buildings).
* Have fully charged spare battery packs and enough film rolls/memory space ready. Some interiors are dimly lit and need high ISO speeds.
* Bring a foldable cardboard to cover disturbing light to prevent reflections.
* Obey policies about taking photographs or videos, otherwise that might not be allowed in the future or being more restrictive. There are institutions where you have to deposit your camera at the entrance on arrival.
* Conditions may change after publication, contact the collection shortly prior your visit to verify.
*[[Commons:Image_casebook#Museum_and_interior_photography]]
