If there is some other official photographer taking pictures, is it possible to take a similar pic after he takes a picture of whatever exhibits.
That way, he can get official pictures and you can get similar but your own pictures that you can share.
You can requst him to use his lighting and other setup and just pic up his frame and click. Most likely he will not object if you do some social engineering for this.

Just a hacker thought ;-)

Hello everyone,

While on vacations at my hometown Jamnagar, I thought of contributing something to Commons, thus I decided to start with Archaeological Museum Jamnagar. The Museum is superb with different variety of exhibits of Jamnagar like stone excavations, rifles, canons, different pictures to show. Thus I decided to capture those and put on commons, I am still in midst of processing many more images and upload them, meanwhile I have created a Gallery on commons. Please do have a look at it and give your valuable suggestions/thoughts.
I was charged Rs 100/- by the Museum authority and also have the receipt of it, thus they allow to take photographs.
Also one interesting thing was going on in Museum, there was one other professional photographer taking close up shots with proper background and lighting of each and every artifact with the help of few other people of museum, on inquiring it, I came to know that Government has asked to digitize the whole museum, and thus he got one of the contracts to photograph them, but sadly all of them will be copyrighted.

Once again the link to my gallery is  http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Lakhota_Museum_Jamnagar.

Hoping to hear from all of you.
