    Well.. I was just standing there, and she choose to approched me and tell me off.. perhaps she tot i was easy for her to throw her anger on me. I do understand How she feel, I did see some photographer really stand beside the mum & daughter shooting without asking permission since its such a close up.

    and.. at VIVO for the Final Theme, imagine almost 50 of us there to shoot the kids, some parent really feel annoying with us and not allow us to shoot the kids. I ask permission from one father for just shooting his daughter. He was pleased and he was appreciated I asked permission for this but he was really dislike all the photographer was around to shoot and the parent was not aware such huge event happening.

    Perhaps Canon should provide model release forms and equivalent.

    From what I have seen, preparing for this compy can be akin to preparing for exam.
    Have family members at standby to be 'models' and lots of props at hand.
    While going around with friends is fun, we may end up with all similar shots, would that make it harder to stand out?

    I bet that the organisers check EXIF info for date/time stamping. So take lots of pictures with the competition date stamp and hope one of them are suitable for the theme.
    Do they check that everone's camera is programmed with the correct date/time before compy?

    I missed this year's event. Looks like u all had buckets of fun.
    See u at next year's event.

    I actually agree with the parents on that one, if you're a parent you'll probably don't want that to happen too.

    When I went to the skate park, the area in front of Toys R' Us, etc. Some contestants (sorry, can't call them "photographers") were shooting kids up close without even asking the parents or acknowledging them... I found it quite rude that many participants were swarming around kids taking photos of them "discreetly" without even talking to the parents and all.

    Not even a simple "thanks" gesture after shooting.

    I think we all have our personal boundaries and when it comes to kids, parents have an even larger boundary and a responsible photographer should at least signal the parent for agreement before shooting.

    Yesterday was probably my first attempt to walk up to strangers, asking for permission to photograph and it was quite rewarding even to those who politely declined.

    After the 2nd event, my son and wife went to Suntec to see me and I was happy that the last theme can involve a child since I'm most comfortable with photographing my son.

    So I thought of going to Toys R' Us to get my son a Bumblebee mask (he already has 2 actually), and get myself an Optimus Prime mask (since I promised him I'll get one as we always pretend to be Bumblebee and Optimus), after I paid, I saw the large Transformers poster and decided to ask my wife to take a couple of pictures of both of us for personal use coz it was fun.

    When it was my wife's turn to wear the mask with my son, at least 3 participants in Canon shirt were sneakingly photographing my wife and kid. While I know they're going to submit that for the competition, I didn't really like the idea of strangers with large cams pointing at my family, the least those guys could do was to ask me/my wife first.

    I even saw my wife and son's photo being submitted during the slideshow. If those guys asked permission, I'd be more than happy to pose for them and hope they win with my son's photo, but being "paparazzi-like" is no way to shoot strangers, it's just rude.

    My original plan was to buy bubbles for a child to play with then use that as a subject. Since I don't need a stranger's kid anymore with my son's visit, I brought him out to the exit area and let him play with the bubbles while I try to get one for submission for theme 3. Egad, 2 minutes into our playtime, three guys were photographing him from 10-15ft away.

    It's annoying actually... While I know this is an amateur competition, people should start with proper photography etiquette while still new to this craft, instead of thinking "it's public, I can do whatever I want..."

    Unless you're shooting a crowd, you really have to be civil and polite when photographing private portraits.

    Truth.. usually I will look around.. if the parents give me eyes contacts and I will ask if its' alrite to go ahead... tats why i didnt really shoot well with all my themes. i stop shooting once I know its too much to do it because almost all the contestants was everywhere to shoot all the kids, parents etc.....Hope everyone do take note this...

    anyway i think winners for msia side is here:

    http://www.photomarathonasia.com/malaysia/winners.html

    the shot he was referring to (the winner for msia), imo has better composition, the flag, the twin towers,
    the jumping is added effect. I think its a decent good photo that tells a story.

    Hi lynchmob
    The results for 3 countries have been out for almost a week. You can refer to the link for the websites: http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthrea...=302708&page=5

    Hi Theveed
    I agree with u on your sentiments with regards to photographing subjects, such as children. Parents will tend to be a bit sensitive about such photos, and being a parent myself, it is no exception.

    For my submission for Playtime, I went to United Square and wanted to shoot some photos of children. For one which I wanted to shoot while he was at a kiddie ride, I actually asked his parents for permission and even sponsored the kiddie ride. I think it was the least I can do.

    On my way out back , I saw this cute girl who was near the entrance at the carousel. I approach her parents for permission and asked if they could accompany their daughter out into the open (better lighting), and engaged in a play session where I could capture her exuberence and smiles.

    The mother was extremely pleasant and surprised, and agreed. That short 15 mins was really an enjoyable shoot for myself, my father and my friend, as we engaged in a play session with the girl, Emily. I must have shot at least 30 photos of her. We took down her parents contacts, and I will be sending to her printed shots of her daughter as a way of showing my thanks.

    My first shot for Passion was also done the same way with me asking permission from the owner of the shop prior to shooting him at work. I must have asked at least 5 subjects yesterday for permission before proceeding with my shots, ranging from an old gentleman playing chess to the parents of young children.

    I think photographers have to realise that most subjects, if asked appropriately, are more than happy to have their photos taken. They just want to know the purposes behind the photos. It is a small gesture to show our sincerity and respect in asking first before shooting.
