    I will tell my girlfriend or wife frankly that I will be shooting models if I have one. . Before that she must know what my hobby requires.

    If it is hard for them to accept, then it is difficult for them to be girlfriend and wife. Somemore this is not a illegal hobby.

    That's another reason for the use of prime lens and autofocus

    Why do you need to set up this poll?

    Something close to your heart ... too close for comfort?

    If my gf cannot accept my hobbies, why get together in the first place?

    Some people go to shoot XMMs. They tell wife they go fishing.

    They don't bring fishing rods out. But they take their camera bags instead.

    I would inform - but that'll mean she'll ban me from joining any such shoot. So it's a non-starter.

    Of course, it's not black and white ... the problem is, if you cannot accept you bf/gf/wife/husband as they are, why?

    All too often, I see relationships around this part of the world is build on what you cannot do. So sad!

    Oh, do we or should we object to all her hobbies too?
