I'm looking to compile a list of do's and don'ts for photo documenting environmental issues. I'm specifically looking to capture photos that will be useful in documenting permit violations. What are things I should keep in mind?
This list is compiled from a couple of research notes and posts. Specifically from @a1ahna and her work on a monitoring guide for people in Louisiana related to oil and gas issues, and notes shared by Mary Dougherty, a photographer from Bayfield County WI.
