Thread: Just another Newbie's request.

  1. #1

    Wink Newbie's request. (Not for Trolls..)

    It's funny tho, from this thread (Photographer or Hardware-Collector? ), the only conclusion I get, is some CS'pers do enjoy joining in some debate fun and starts shouting,

    "Post Post Post!"
    "Post more pictures!"
    "Post some pictures for critiques"
    "Let's talk more about photography techniques, skills, blah blah"
    "Why no one do this, why no one do that..."
    "Why they do this, why they do that, why , why ,why!"

    etc.

    But they themselves kept all their pictures in some big vault with double lock.

    Everyone is asking for more pictures, more critiques, more discussions on real photography stuffs, but apparently everyone is waiting for others to do it instead. Some keeps complaining about nothing can be done, it's a norm for all forums, that's singaporean's attitude, so and so. Well, take the lead then.

    Taking one of old Goondu's quote,

    "Photography is An Art, all I heard is someone's fart"

    Calling for all newbies, including myself, start posting your shots. For fast comments, post in Critique Corner. If the response is good, congrats, else, note that you have nothing to lose, keep trying. At least you have done your part to help the forum grow. It's a photography forum, posting 1 picture will definitely worth more then typing 1000 words in other's thread.

    Calling all amateurs, you are the group that should post even more, help us newbies to open up our thoughts. Words can't really explain much, visual is what we are waiting for.

    Calling for self-declared pros, you might think posting your glamour shots are worthless, cos no one appreciates, and you don't need some newbies to comment your shots. Well, good for you.

    Calling all real pros, your guidance and words are definitely much appreciated.



    Just a simple request from a noob.


    PS. Self-declared pros, trolls, "Ego"ists need not have to read this post.

    Ignore them? Anyway, we are mature enough not to be bothered by these immature beings, rite?

    Anyway, bashing is not necessary no good. There may be a point but just happened that the writer didn't know how to express it. Anyway, if you can't take bashing, then don't post lor. But then don't post, no bashing, but will never getthe real good critics. Frankly, for those real nonsense ones, just ignore it lah.

    ya, why not? i think rangefinders are ok too, or even medium format. i'll be using my el cheapo yashica T4 or T5 film cam...

    but one stipulation - your lens must not be detachable from your cam body.

    If I'll to post some pics, all comments helps. Offensive? Just ignore them, words don't kill.

    I don't have a P&S cam, probably will get a box of disposable cam instead.

    togu yaya leh... LOL

    anyway about ppl wanting to show off, isn't that true? usually u take ur best pic and put it up, so ppl can tell u if it misses something.
    no point posting a pic u urself knows is really bad...

    other than that, my only complaint is that sometimes ppl miss the theme of the photograph () which grieves me... but it's a subjective matter as usual... hands tied...
