Wait...wait ... There is something I want to know seriously?
I see what some of you all just wrote... does it means, even if I pay the Model the money to take pictures of them (say on the Drum Kit) - At the end of the day, I still have to give them copies of whatever is being taken (the pictures taken I mean plus $$$$$? )
Ehhh? but she never tell me that ley in the PMs? ...or was it assume that I already know and this is the so-call Usual practice here? that whenever one engage their services - its like that one?
PS: - Also - If I pay her $$$$...does that means when I ask her to post a certain position - she have to because I pay her (or she can say NO to me too here - I mean in a reasonable way).....What if I say "Can you open your leg wider lah..widerrrrr, or say "Can you bend a little more like 45 degree Kekekeke me naughty here) - she has to follow suit cause I pay what?.....I dunno really.
PS: - I guess should be ok right, izzit ? - one bro here say 'Lie Down" she kwai-kwai lie down", "Jump" she Jump..... so If I say "Sit" she sit lah ...Kekekeke correct?
Like that quite fun ...me wify and GFs also not so obedient ... I tell them "Come Here Please" somemore using the words "Please"...they can still tell me "Wait lah - I'm bery busy now".....but never come as always....Hahahhahaha ! ...
The good news is that you will eventually grow out of it.
Then you will find travel shots of other countries' folks going about their daily lives or scenery or macro/wildlife or other topics interesting.
Yes I believe so. Probably I find it very amusing now (to have a Model at my drums posting as a Female-Drummer), understandable as I just acquire 2 weeks ago for the very 1st-time (a Digital Camera - a SLR Type which I do not even know how to operate till now), dont laugh at me but true...it's my new toy and since I'm into drumming - the 1st thing that came to my mind was - Put THe Drums & model together -then snap snap...hehehe.
I am also a Volunteer-Guide at the National Orchid Garden (where I bring the Visitors around-show and explain all the Varieties of Orchids there) - - They are nice...and I hope I will be able to take some nice pictures later-on, when I know how to operate the Camera better (at least to get the Basics right for a start now) still long way for me to go.
Though I'm new here - I know that Good Lens can be very very expensive (there are so many types),and can cost more than an average Drum-Set. It is indeed an expensive hobby, but nice hobby.
PS: - To the rest, Apologise for Off-Topic here - just a reply to a Bro.
This whole XMM industry is fuelled by excessively high male testosterone level.
To put an end to it that you would have to castrate the dslr-owning male population.
go ask edison he know a lot
Actually, there's 1 sight I can't bear to see - girls modeling at the expense of their studies. I mentioned earlier that some are enticed by the fact that they can earn quite a bit with little or without experience.
Satisfied with what they see, they neglect their studies and 'party' their days away. This is fueled by the local photographers. It is a common fact that models don't model the whole of their lives. So what happens to these (not all) girls who find themselves without a skill / qualification when their shelf life ends?
The idea of giving false hope and indirectly ruining a life is disturbing.
is the girls want to party first, THEN they model. with the money they get, they party MORE. nothing to do with photographers selling them a weird dream hor. most "models" these days are not even really considering a long-term career in modelling, nor should they, based on the qualities they have.

To some extent, I have to disagree because a lot of these girls are quite street-smarts - they know that there are much easier ways than pretending to be models to get their bags and shoes bla bla bla as well as party non-stop for free. Some of it has to do with vanity and delusional images of glam and grandeur.
list of things to ask the 'models' before they are pay.
i think we can start a list so the girls will consider what to look out for if they going to be paid
1) is ur exams around the corner
2) do u want pics if yes state the price of each pic u going to pay the photog
anyone think of anything
