Yes, but shoplifting is illegal.  Asking someone to leave when they are not
doing anything illegal (taking pictures), and then detaining them claiming
trespassing, is entirely different.  It's almost absurdly different.  Think
about it...they ask you to leave, you won't (because you want to finish
shopping), so they detain you?

I am very very skeptical that your point (at least as I read it) is even
remotely correct.  If you do have relevant statutes or cases to cite, I
certainly would appreciated them.
