I've written about Bert P. Kranges' The Photographer's Rights Guide before but it doesn't hurt to review it again. It is a free, pdf guide to what your rights are as a photographer.
The main highlights are:
- That you have the right to photograph (or record video) in a public place and on public land.
- Private owners of land can restrict access to their property but if you are across the street on public land you can record.
- Taking a photograph (or recording) is not an terrorist act.
Know the city and state laws of your location.
Before you head out to document your protest of the moment you might want to spend some time reviewing a free guide.
