    Well said, garou12. CMI XMMs want money and there are plenty of horny GWC with some money to spare. What GWC can resist these bargains? What, $45 for four models?? Better than pasar malam! As long as such BS continue, we will be among the few to keep the flame burning.

    Someone give me a sniper rifle, quick! Silencer optional.

    my dear i applaud you for your candidness and using some adjectives that i myself have been refraining from using. Your speech pattern is begining to remind me of dogbert and that's a good funny thing indeed!

    Wow. Must be because of GSS, latest market rate is $40 for 6 XMMs (including 3 TFCD ).

    Great bargain for the those GWC collecting XMMs faces. Great deal for those XMMs earning some cash to shop during GSS.

    This a win-win situation for XMMs and GWCs.

    XMMs are happy. GWCs are happy.

    Is that what you are proposing?

    I have nothing against the organizers making money. That is fine. Making money is everyone's right.

    However, I have a major problem with how people approach shooting model these days. It is definitely not photography, definitely not creativity, and the end result is absolutely horrific.
    Just take it easy..... majority of photos in CS are only snap shot, not even photography, so don't talk about creativity.

    Most of the people are blinded with sugar coated comments.
    Sometime i told myself i making a fool of myself by giving true C&C to a lousy photo when the whole thread is surrounded with praises. That why i don't really give C&C now.

    To majority of CSers, photography is just a hobby, some got passion, some just wanted to act pro to boost their ego. Sadly i personally felt that the later is the majority.

    XMMs are happy. GWCs are happy.

    remember to set to auto mode, continuous high speed shooting mode, 51 AF points, RAW mode, a few 16GB CF cards, battery grip fully charge, turbo battery pack for flash, also bring notebook or image bank to download on the spot, in case run out CF cards.

    also bring along a voice recorder, you will be too busy to ask for the model's name, and also can't remember all of them.

    To be able to appreciate snap shots is like learning to walk through a wall.

    You have to believe that you can walk into the wall first.

    It's all in your mind.

    So many have also joined CS.

    Everyday there are people taking up photography.

    A 12mp EOS450D body only costs around $1000 Aud now.

    Photography is becoming less elitist.

    And thanks to the entrepreneurial organizers XMMs becoming cheaper and more accessible.

    Where got reason to complain liao.
