    Default Shooting chiobu or shooting as an art?

    Sometimes I see people shooting a nice lady smiling, I ask myself, what is the concept behind that series of photos, and I can't think of anything.

    What do you say?

    I think the photographer must have paid her a lot of money.

    Hence the smile.

    Not sure under what circumstances you are referring to, but those photos of girls at PC shows and car shows are anything but art. It's just about the lowest form of photography around. Yes, one man's meat is another's poison, but I'm of the opinion that such kinds of photography don't deserve to be respected.

    before further discussing on the chiobu, wad kind of shoot is the TS refering to?

    chiobu in motor shows & paid model shoots are very different scenerios. the former is to pose & compliment the cars, of course in this case model must look friendly, attractive, etc. while for the latter, either pose at will or are directed to pose as the paid photographer instructs. if the photographer prefer, dun oso can, just or even type of expression.

    For photographers enroute to becoming successful artists, shooting chiobu in any situations is but a passing phrase ..... however there are photographers who will be so engrossed with this occupation that they become "chiobu specialists" and that can be considered artistic if they can do the job exceptionally well and good ....
    The problematic ones are those who shoot in every situations and every events and yet all the images still "cant make it" ...
    always the Light, .... always.
