when i first came here, i thought it was a good place to buy and sell. and it is.
i thought i could learn from good photographers here, and i did.
i joined a chit chat thread and outings, to make more friends, and i did.
i thought, "wouldn't it be nice to meet some pro photogs too?", and i met them (soon after i joined CS, at SEED btw).
i thought CS can be a nice place to chill out, and it is (in kopitiam at least...with free entertainment included!)
so...to me CS is a pretty nice place.
Hi SM .
This Free Agent and I'm a Photographer who depend photography business for a living , but of course I'm a DOP as well . he he he.......
I always need an extra hand during my shoot , presently I got at least 3 good freelance assistant . If you are interested , you can send me your contact . I'm always happy to tell you what's real Photography about but all my assistant need to be able to go through a tough training . he he he... don't be so frighten just joking .
I think Real Photography joy cannot be found in here , it's an experience when you go out to shoot with an happy heart . Just go out to shoot to try and to enjoy . Look at your developed picture smile at it , take it out 10 years later laugh at it , That's the best thing of Photography because no Photography is perfect Photography as no picture is perfect picture .
Just sharing as I see your boken soul and I feel how you felt , this is not easy as no real meaning of the Photography Spirit in this content . CS was once a happening place for people like you .
I found CS while I was new to Singapore, looking for like minded people, portraits photogrpaher, whom I can go shooting together.
I have found what I was looking for. I am forever greatful to those whom I first met, first shot with, and became friends.
I have also discover CS, especially the portrait sub forum to be the most squabling place I know. I then discover that it is place where comments are usually sugar coated. And last but not least, a place where straight talk is not welcome, by many at the very least.
It is also a place and time where "Deadpoet" had developed a love/hate reputation. But I have no regrets. Starting the "messy hair" crusade, whom a few frowned on, did more to improve my own ability to observe, to critique, and ultimately, a better photographer.
I still have a long way to go to become the photographer I want to be.
But most important of all, I had made sme very good friends through CS. Thank you Club Snap!
Wow so Paisei !
So Pro ...... then no point , at the end of the day Pro. actually don't need to come here .
Pro. can go Shooting Gallery or Hanchew Studio.
They got the Best Teacher there, if got question can go there , they got the best Equipment available too .
So Paisei , feel wrongly for someone who I thought wants to explore Photography .
CS is place where people get scolded for their lousy photos and still thank the person who calls his photos trash.
Certain people look for newbie, slam them real hard. Tell them that their photos sucks when in fact his own photos look the same. Come up with weird theories (that he himself never follow at times) and insist that those are biblical truth in photography. As times go by, all the "newbies" become intoxicated with that theory and thought it is real. The advocator then proclaim that he is correct and many people in fact thank him for it and supported him.
