    Why do we have to lump this extra stress in everything we do?

    A. What's wrong in shooting for free. Do people need to collect $$$ when taking pictures? May be for you, but definately not for me.

    B. There're lots of ppl laughing at ppl doing other hobbies as if they're fools too. Why are you so concerned when people are doing things they like.

    C. Taking pictures are only my intention. I did not bother to go get their contacts anyway. Its auto most of the time.

    D. Try it and you know.

    E. I'm not bothered abt whether the organisers want the photos or not. Those are for collection and I'm not even going to sell it even if they want them.

    F. That I'm usually not bothered. Those are just target practice usually.

    G. So that's what you think.

    H. Don't be surprised when those wannabees break your ricebowl later on.
    go ahead, break my ricebowl, with your 500 f4 lens please i beg you!!!!! and shoot for free, i think my clients will fee in terror. if a goon keeps haping on my lap and demand he want to give me free things, i better walk away.

    My CSer colleague and I alsways muse over these so called 'event' photographer, and wonder if they actually have a life or not. We are also been amazed by their passion, for being able to be in almost every event, everyday! Don't they have something else to do in their lives?

    My own conclusion, however biased it may be are that:

    1. Alot of them are geeky
    2. Socially inept
    3. Poorly adjusted
    4. Low self esteem

    The signs that they show in CS? Well, they are:

    1. Go to every event, shoot and post alot of the pics
    2. Seems to take only pretty models
    3. Seems to change avatar frequently, usually pics of photg taken with the models
    4. Call their pics newbie shots, when they probably taken more shots in one event than the average gus like us have taken over a span of a few months.

    In conclusion, my own bias view is that, what they do is actually a compensatory behaviour towards their real life, in which they are usually the losers.

    For me, as avid or passionate as one may be towards a hobby, I don't think I can afford to spend my entire life doing just that! No need to work meh? No family/wife/GF/BF to take care of meh? No other things to do meh?

    And abut fans chasing after idols....do u realise that most of the young girls chasing after those handsome stars have one kind of look too: plump, not so good looking with pimples on their face. I may be generalising, but i think many do get my drift.....

    I was just joking with my colleague just now, that these 'event' phtogs seems to have a common name : Tan Chi Hong, Yeo Chi Hong, Lim Chi Hong, Phua Chi Hong, etc, etc.

    Paron me if I've offended anybody, I'm just stating my biased views and making a general sweeping statement la, with no specific people in mind....so if u feel offended, u probably fall into the demographics I stated.

    how come no one comment back on your statement...been 9 hours already...

Sometimes these events only got photographers, no people watching. I mean, seriously, why bother ?
    because its an opportunity to practice their hobby and have some fun even if they dont profit from it. it also relieves men's ancient instinct to go hunting in packs

    Don't forget the lastest craze of wearing lens caps too.

    You should get a pair of them and try them for size.
