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.

use video cam next time...
hmmm i experience be4 too ... haiz y ppl always don't take notice of their surroundings. one word, self-centered.... for me if i du lanz i will just snap snap away with their face in it, and go closer (stand next to them) and stare at them , then just continue to snap snap away @#$%
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.
Maybe we should start a thread to lay down the dos and donts as a guide for all.
Yapp & happy
aiyah.. forgive and forget la... of cos its not nice to block others la.. but since the lady has moved off after being tapped on the shoulder so be it lo... as long as she did not get nasty or abusive after being told to give way can liao la.
