    whatever the excuses they offer, they are really shooting chiobu.

    well ... let sit back and think thru how are we being made ? do we drop from the sky when our parents got married ? all i want to say we are humans and it is normal to have desires.

    however, when a human desire becomes an uncontrolled complusive addiction issue, that's the danger & death zone.

    to be honest, i am glad that my photography frens are motivated by women and not men. imagine your dear buddy kept staring at you instead of that bikini model beside him...

    errr....wats wrong with shooting chiobu? is it any different than shooting nudes which some claim are artistic (as in artistic nude) but others term as smut? or for that matter, why shoot babies? coz they're cute? or why shoot macro? becoz its dramatic?

    may i suggest a slightly different question for the TS to ask: Why not?

    dun play play, chiobu specialist shoot pop stars like Janet Jackson, Ayumi Hamasaki & get paid. they are paid to shoot, most GWC must pay to shoot! a world of difference that makes...

    Photography has been historically defined as:

    "Capturing a thing of beauty while standing up."

    i say there is nothing wrong in appreciation of raw human beauty.

    the same could be said of "people shooting a nice dragonfly stoning"

    or

    "people shooting a nice mountain sitting there"

    or

    "people shooting an interesting pattern of lights"

    an open mind is always best when approaching any form of art. does everything have to be conceptualised?

    i have many bones to pick with people who seem to shoot "nice ladies" for the sake of some form of ego-propping (wow, i am shooting a girl in a bikini, go me! i feel like a jock) or mental masturbation (i shall not elaborate on this).. but the act itself is not wrong. it is the humans behind it that warp the entire act into something else entirely.

    Shoooting "nice old ladies" is excusable?

    unless you use it to ego prop

    undoubtedly, in this superficial world today.. having access to "nice old ladies" doesn't provide much of an ego prop..

    as for the other one.. i.e. mental masturbation.. that's your problem, not mine

    They mostly hang around vegetable stalls.

    You need to have an in-depth knowledge of Chinese greens to strike up a conversation with them aunties.
