    if its a pretty lady, ask her nicely.

    if its a not so pretty lady, give her push, take her equipment and run away.

    actually, i believe the best way is to approach her and tell her right in the face.

    unless she is really a 100% selfish monster...

    i saw her as i was there.
    she belong to the red sits if i am not wrong,

    my gf and i also bring tripods and setup there.
    we reframe from standing and blocking as much as possible.

    what we got out of it.
    a lot of hands and heads. lol

    an advice to ppl going to the NPD, go and enjoy the show, photography is not worth it while you are in there. enjoy the show. it is better for everyone.

    Say loudly to a friend near you so that she can hear,

    "Hey ! I just spotted John Travolta in the audience up in the back row".

    She will run up there with camera looking for him to photo
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    i should have takjen her photo and post here...the part that really p***** me off is after taking photos...she just stood there using her hp! she must be thinking ppl thinking she is some stylo photographer...actually she is as good as a wooden plank blocking ppl view...and i thought only wooden plank had no brain.

    whenever i cover any event, i always feel so paisai if i have to block someone for the shot. and always adjust everything ready-move in- snap snap- then lower my head so that they know i know i am blocking them then quickly move away.

    another time was covering event during booksale. there was a competition and was taking photo of the winners. then this fella just step right in front of me w his super big reflector mounted on his flash and blocks everything...being the official photographer, i didnt care and just shove him away to get my shot...must go gym more often....hee

    aiyah, she also eager to take shots of the ndp mah, given the fact that she's using d40, maybe she just starting to pick up photography and wanted to try taking NDP and never realised she's blocking someone.

    You can just tell her nicely that she had blocked your view, i'm sure any decent person would realised it and move away.

    Do give pple a chance You do not want to scare her off and next time, she's not so daring to set up a tripod just to get a good shot and we lose another photograher.

    She is not a photographer. Photographer respects photographers. The moment they are done, they will move away for others. They are also mindful of the need of other photographers.

    Maybe we should start a thread to lay down the dos and donts as a guide for all.

    Yapp & happy

    Only one rule for photog out there. Before you shoot, take a moment and look behind you. If you are blocking someone, quickly move away.
