    Lightbulb Exasperated......

    recently, at a camera publicity event, there were models in bridal costume, in traditional costume and cultural dancers for us to shoot. there was a short queue waiting for their turn to shoot. CP provided the lights as well as a sync cord. i was in the queue. came a guy with his gears and began to set up his monopod and mounted his camera on it at the front of the queue. he was getting to shoot. i tapped his shoulder and told him that there was a queue of people waiting to shoot. he replied with a smile, 'let me shoot'. so, he shot. i was exasperated. i do not know what to do with people like him.

    why are some of us are behaving like this?

    Tell the organizer, let them handle this, you donít know who this person is, and you have done you part.

    the shoot in question was meant for one photographer at a time. that was why a short queue has formed.

    This event was to let potential customers try out the new 1ds mk2 ... it seems pretty strange that people view it as a photo/studio opportunity ....
    the camera was rigged with a radio trigger to fire off the elinchrom strobes to probably discourage people from using other cameras to shoot...

    I would have thought the intentions were clear enough ...

    of course there would be many that would argue that this is a public event...


    in any case ...

    Happy shooting ...

    no stress. are you saying that for 'free-for-all model shoot', one can behave without decorum?
