Tibet is called the heaven of Photographers. The high mountains and lakes, the grassland, the exotic culture in Tibet offer a lot of photo opportunities to travelers. Here is some advice for travelers.
The extreme temperature might cause your camera death, please take necessary technical precautions if you plan to travel to some high mountains at extremely low temperature. It's wise to take enough films and batteries for most shops out of Lhasa sell fake batteries and it will destroy the good opportunity to take a nice picture.
Photographing in monasteries is generally allowed but taking pictures inside the chapels is forbidden. Some monasteries allow you take pictures inside the chapel but charge extremely high rates. The Drepung Monastery allows inside photography and charges no fee.
Advice for photography
(1) Try to bring more films and batteries, if you do not bring enough from home, buy them in professional photographic shops in Lhasa.
(2) Avoid buying films in other places out of Lhasa, unless you like to buy some fake films.
(3) Take more spare batteries, because the low-temperature in Tibet will greatly shorten the duration.
(4) Take care of your camera. Do not let it insolate under the sunshine; do not use the camera when it is unclear or rainy.
(5) Respect the person you invite to take pictures, if necessary you may give them some small gifts or money.
(6) In Lhasa, maybe there are some Tibetan people asking you for money when you take pictures with them, which is a very natural thing, but do not give them too much.
(7) You'd better equip the camera lens with UV lens to protect the camera lens and also make the sky captured bluer.
(8) If it is possible, take a small tabled-tripod and photoflash lamp which will bring you much more fun for your photography.
(9) Ask for permission before you taking pictures in the hall of the monastery.
