    Think ladder is most useful when you are at the back of the crowd rather than in front.

    Actually the ladder phenomenon started way beyond a year. I know who started it and I am not going to name names. But even the individual that started using ladders, that person was really gentlemen /gentlewomenly about it. Knowing that he would be able to get eye level shots, he went to stand way back and let others stand in front of him to either view or shoot the event. And yes, it was really in the earlier part of the year that the phenomenon started.

    Wah.. this thread is really Long.. i got tired reading half way through... anyway.. my hk friend told me that this ladder thingy happened long time ago in hk, so it could well be 'copied' from there.

    Ok, on a serious note.. i guess it is not difficult for the organiser to mark out a section for all photographers with ladder ?!?

    arming with a camera doesn't make you have the right to do something like this, it is really photo-beng, inconsiderable beng.

    The only solution? Either join them...queue up overnite, buy their album, masquerade as SHE fans etc....den when before you reach the stage, pull out your DLSR and L lens and flash pack from your backpack and start machine gunning them.
    And why do you wanna do this???? For sake of just taking their pix? For what?

    when photogs start to erect the wall with their own ladders, members of the public interested to enjoy the performance can come and rent higher ladders to go above the zealous photogs

    at the end, everyone will be standing on ladders ... get the picture?

    I am going to write in to all the shopping complexes Management to ban ladders.

    This is the best possible solution. No more bickering on who is right is wrong.

    If everyone is selfish, then best is not to use any ladders.

    In fact this is a good thread to show to them as well.

    Not to created a flame but please be considered to all photographers. The management of most shopping complexes are lenient to let us shoot without any permission. Do you all want the management to ban photographers?

    So how about it?

    Yeah, this is a most sensible thing said so far. Many of the contributions are merely talking coq and singing song. Or else it gives us photogs a bad name to be considered a big nuisances to all public performances.

    Or another solution is to provide chairs for like 100 people to sit and photogs to be behind the chairs - everybody get their share of the show. Or the worst thing that could happen would be that photography is banned entirely on all public performances.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    ...maybe a "temporary" ban would be good and let the management re-evaluate the situation whether to allow photographers to shoot at certain public performances.
