    My friend Philip started out photography on birds, shoots only birds, and is not a pro in avian photography liao
    Afterall, many treat photography as a hobby, and what better excuse to enjoy your hobby even more by shooting your favourite subjects?

    Ask yourself, what is street photography? How many really understand what is street photography.... to some its just shooting people on the street, thats why they might find it boring after a while.

    Some might disgreed with me, but to my definition, street photography reflects the current environment/culture of a society, its not just shooting people from a distance. Its you as a photographer thats needs to come close to your subject and capture the essence or what you have observed at that instant of time.

    captures the environment/culture of a society? ... hmmm ... interesting .. i've been thinking of trying to capture the essence of 'Singapore Culture' ... but could never figure out how ... perhaps you and other street-shooters could give me some pointers? thanks in advance

    Please!

    Here, many have the impression that by taking male models -> you are gay. I wanted to shoot male and female models. So far, only Pertf69 had organized one and it became full when it was with a female as well. Search the attempt by Astin shoot on a muscled male and see the pathetic response.

    hmmm ... what do you mean by 'back alley' ? physically and literally or you mean 'behind the scenes' situation?

    Here's another way to look at it in an anaelogy. Photography is like martial arts. Just as there are different forms of unique martial arts, there are different kinds of photography -- some of them being street photography and portraits.

    It is important to do what you feel most passionate about. Do not go about following the masses just because it is a trend or whatsoever. Attempt to try different kinds of photography for a start, and think for yourself which field you tend to feel most 'connected' to while shooting. And pursue the ones that you can better relate to.

    Why would anyone want to use a gray card for setting white balance?
