    What NOT to shoot in Moscow? :)

    Hi

    I'm going for a weekend trip to Moscow this Thursday and I plan to photograph -a lot- while there.

    However, I've heard that there are things and buildings you should not photograph in Moscow.
    I am a guy who likes to stay out of trouble so....

    ..any pointers from anyone here?

    I'm guessing it's probably like the USA, but not quite as authoritarian. /irony

    WHO not to shoot is equally important - nobody with bodyguards, nobody with tattoos.

    Hehe Charley, I would not photograph anyone like that anywhere.

    I've red that there are certain buildings and security personnel you should not photograph, but it never says what that is.

    I would rather not be clobbered for photograph the marching guards around the kremlin for example.

    I never heard of restrictions on photography in Moscow, Idaho. Grin.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Good point, luckily it's easier to say photograph than trying to type it on an iPad like I am doing now
    - corrected my overly aggressive sounding original post now ^^

    Really looking forward to visit Moscow, few I know have been there, as a bonus, I also know someone there, who can guide me a bit ^^

    I think that Uncle Joe used to ask the same question in the 1930s

    Don’t worry. Shoot anything what you want. I did it a lot of times, even during a Soviet time. And now you can be absolutely worry free. Believe me. I was born in Soviet Union and lived there for 40 years.

    I had only one run-in with police in Moscow - they told me (through gestures since my Russian extends to numbers and "I don't understand it in Russian") I could photograph in the subway but not use a tripod. Overall I found the people very relaxed and friendly; I wouldn't worry about it at all.

    Seriously, don't miss the subway.

    I would love to do some urbex around there, but that is of course going to be (much?) higher risk.

    That's true, I've been there. You can do anything you want.
