Brazil is an exceptionally photogenic country. You can take photographs of almost everything in Brazil, so be sure to take enough films and or memory. Not all Brazilians want to have their picture taken. Offer people the chance to refuse and respect this. Rolls of film are obtainable everywhere in Brazil, but if you want goof quality it is best to take along enough film from home. If you use a zoom lens, be sure to take 400 ASA rolls along. Rolls for slides are hard to come by. Don’t forget spare batteries and recharging equipment. It is best to have films developed and printed in Europe.
Please note that it is not wise to display an expensive camera, carry it around in a plastic carrier bag, preferably with Brazilian lettering.
