    Bringing a ladder is one thing, but using it ethically - not blocking in the way of other photographers - is another.

    Hi Koelsch,

    So I guess that you could understand the tallent to shoot with a pogo stick
    I had also considered suggesting a portable fork lift, or an inflatable cushion type affair.

    Sorry if I seem calous with my suggestions though.

    Me I would take along a "fully motorised 10 foot palm tree" and perch amongst the leaves.

    Along with this, I would wear a beak so I would blend in.

    Hi joey91,

    Just a joke above ....

    I am also "Vertically challenged" .... that is how we have to say it here... you can be "done ' for saying that someone is short !!!!! (how stupid)


    Same as with the saying, " rule of thirds"..... it is also better to shoot from below than from above.

    Don't try to see what you cant see. Exception to this will be a studio shot.

    Have fun and post your shots
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    what abt u guys ??
    Bringing a ladder during a idol-&-fans-meet/signing session is sucidal. Especially if its some Korean movie hunk or male band/pop group, oh my god, the female fans, especially the teenagers were like monsters on the loose.

    I will bring a ladder IF...

    1. I am paid to do a particular event or show.
    2. Someone invited me to a very exclusive show that is purely by invitation. A good example would be the recent SFF.

    But to be honest, sometimes I wonder if after going through all the hassle of bringing the ladder/stool, at the end of the day isizt still useful or not.

    During the recently ended SFF I was taking photos of the last show by Missoni. I was amazed that there weren't so many photographers despite it was the closing show so yeah, I was actually right at the front, although not exactly right in front of the catwalk.

    Then halfway through, this particular photographer (foreign press I think) just dashed right in front of me, blocking my view and take photos! This local photographer who was standing beside me just kept staring at him! Maybe he was embarrased or something 'cos he gradually moved away. Unfortunately, maybe he was too excited or what but he continued to block my view for a couple of times for the rest of the show.

    Moral of the story - even if you bring a ladder, be there early and chop a good seat, your million dollar view can STILL be blocked if some bugger comes in late and (gasp!) puts his/her ladder in front of you.

    I saw a lot of that during this year's SFF.

    do you have a pogo?! i really wish to play with it. and how to shoot with that?! can move 3 steps very pro liao. haha. but whats an inflatable cushion type affair? hmmm.

    joey : just bring a ladder along if you want a good shot. i saw photographers with ladders, in a group at bugis parco very recently. doesn't matter if your outcome shots are good.
    I Love You :)
