Ettore Chiereguini, a photographer from Brazil shares some pro tips on photographing riots, demonstrations and protests on PetaPixel. From gear to deportment, it’s a great read for those involved in photojournalism or those that aspire to be.
Three tips include
#1. Be ready and don’t be afraid to get closer to your subject.
#2. Front shots are always better than back shots (though, of course, some back shots can give you more information about who’s protesting).
#3. If police are there, they can improve your safety, but do not stay too close as some objects thrown at the police can hit you.
