I went on a group tour to the famous palace in Lhasa, Tibet. Its name means "sacred Buddhist site" was built in 7th century and throughout the ages, it had been the winter palace of Dalai Lamas. Today the palace has been converted into a museum by the Chinese.
I brought along a Holga, supersampler, Nikon F65 and a Canon Ixus digital. My friends thought i was insane but loved the pictures I took! The Skies were amazing especially when you cross process!
1) Prepare to pay the locals money (about US one dollar) if you want take their pictures.
2) You have to pay to take pictures inside most monasteries, thats why most of my shots are outside of the palace
3) Be careful not to point your cameras at the local police as they will take your negatives. Yes! I almost had to if not for my tour guide to explain things for me.
4) Bring LOTs of negatives (and positives) and a Polaroid if you have one! I regretted not bringing my LC-A and Polaroid cameras.
