Do’s and Don’ts of Photographing Cemeteries and Other Sacred Places

Recently I came across a thread on social media proclaiming all cemetery shoots were disrespectful and should be prohibited.  Being a.) an artist and b.) someone who likes to debate everything, I was surprised by this stance.  I’m endlessly fascinated by the stories in these places, the history, and the artistry of the headstones and statues.

Here are my “do’s and don’ts” of photographing cemeteries and other sacred places.
