    Say you see a shot you really want, and you cant get it from where you are standing (right next to the no trespassing sign) and need to get closer. What do you do? any specific circumstances that you will, or will not trespass?

    what kind of laws are there about this? and what kind of trouble could you expect? small fine? death by property owner? :noes:

    It could be anything from a notice to appear to a full blown arrest and booking.

    Could be a misdemeanor to a felony depending on a whole slew of things.

    The only places I wont trespass on is government buildings... unless it's something really good.

    I've been known to bring models on properties that I'm not supposed to be on, simply because another location just WILL NOT do. haha...

    I've been "caught" probably 5-6 times by property owners. 2 times on the same property by the same guy. Never had anything happen though... they just make me leave. Of course, I'm not doing anything that is disrespectful. I never damage/move/or take anything.. even if it's an old burnt building (the place I've been kicked out of twice).

    I did trespass on an old ranch once and got attacked by an Emu though... stupid bird didn't like the camera AT ALL. haha... good thing it didn't kick me or something because I hear they can leave quite a nasty gash.

    An Emu has a nasty set of claws. It's their only means of defense. It's a good thing it didn't get you.

    Not sure about this one. I don't like getting into trouble so I am always pretty careful about where I'm taking pictures. If I see no possible way of getting caught (ie caves out in the woods or something) then yeah I'm doing it, but I'm not gonna try getting on top a building and getting shots of something I'm not supposed to see.

    In my job as a copier repair guy I see a lot of things and get into a lot of buildings that don't even want camera phones, but sometimes in the lower security places I bring my camera and get some neat angles of the city here and I have sneaked a few shots inside bases, but don't tell. Nothing interesting really, but I've always liked airplanes.

    The possibility of getting caught adds to the excitement.

    I'd never try to "break in" anywhere....but if there is an old building or something that I want pictures of/in.......I'm goin' for it!
