Thread: Just curious..

  1. #1

    Default Just curious..

    1. Is there any like.. butch/bung models around? I'm just curious! Haha one of my friends is interested in being a model but she's afraid that there isn't any such models around. And she feel that some photographers are very against homos? I don't know but it'd be great if you could show/tell me if there's any photographers who do shoots with bungs/butches

    2. To capture great photos, must you use as DSLR? I just got a Nikon Coolpix P5100. I'm still pretty new to it but I really don't know how to do the settings & etc. Like exposure, whatever mm & stuff like that. Photos I took with Nikon don't usually turn out the way I want them to. It's blur most of the time though my hands are quite steady? I was thinking if I should sell this Nikon of mine & get a DSLR instead? :/

    reply to your Q#2,

    simply put it this way, you want to create a good photo, you need:
    good idea (as in artistic, creativity, blar blar blar)
    good skill (as in craftsmanship, etc etc etc) and
    good tools (as in good/right camera, lenses, computer and software blar blar blar)

    so it is something like soul, mind and body, you need all of them to be a complete living person...

    hope it is not too "chim".

    2. Make sure you expose at at least double of your focal length of your zoom. If your zoom is at 70 set shutter speed at 180 or 250 to avoid handshake. Or use a tripods.

    like sion said, don't shoot too slow speed, you will get handshake.

    most likely you are shooting indoor or lowlight situation,
    so either you use a flash,
    up your ISO

    or get both

    1. Is there any like.. butch/bung models around? I'm just curious! Haha one of my friends is interested in being a model but she's afraid that there isn't any such models around. And she feel that some photographers are very against homos? I don't know but it'd be great if you could show/tell me if there's any photographers who do shoots with bungs/butches

    I suppose its all very subjective.. But personally i dont think that photographers have any discrimination against butch/bung. Afterall, the photographers job is to bring out the best in his/her subject and capture that on film/digitally.

    If there are, im sure its just a minor lot. Most are friendly and would often be more than willing to try and capture new things / people / etc.

    As to whether or not there are such models around.. Locally im not aware but i know there are such overseas


    2. To capture great photos, must you use as DSLR? I just got a Nikon Coolpix P5100.

    Dont need la, PNS are so powerful nowadays. Their focal range is crazy, you can have like 10x optical zoom that you'll have spend thousands on to get a similar lens for SLR. Anyways whatever the hardware, the basics of photography still apply. Like composition and framing. No DSLR can auto-compose or auto-frame a shot for you.

    And as mentioned by the masters above, blurs are probably caused slow shutter or handshake =)

    3. Anyone know where can I download PSP games & songs for free?! I don't want to download file-sharing client eh..

    Er i only know how to bit-torrent. Hahaha.

    Hope this helps.

    Don't you think you're asking a bit too much for a starter model? What about her confidence level and how comfortable she is with posing for someone she hardly knows, let alone nude?

    Of course I was kidding. In fact, by coming here and asking for free photography service, I was, in fact , telling her and her friends, nothing is for free.

    I did check her blogsite and saw the butch-looking fren photos. Kisses and all. So who is so innocent here?? No one.
