    Default Photos on scene?

    I am wanting to get some on scene photos of our department, but I don't want to offend or upset anyone.

    I have permission from our chief do take photos, but what are the ethics of this? I know don't take gory photos and blur faces, ect. I am not really wanting those kind of photos, mainly stuff like news papers would print.

    So what kind of rules of thumb do/would you follow?
