I guess it's the over-enthusiasm of our fellow photographers..
Personally, I think the use of tripod in a fashion show is clearly a NO-NO.. too much space constraint and it actually limit the photographer's view and angle coz they are shooting a moving subject... free play must be considered.. That's why a monopod is better in this situation. If not, handheld the best.
Just my 2cts
tHope everyone had a good time despite all these.
Din go coz I was scheduled to go to the airport to pick up a friend very last minute
