    Been shooting for so long, I just found out today what a CAMWHORES mean.

    Is like I know this technique but never knew it was called CAMWHORES.

    Not the shooter, the model. Or that annoying officemate that has to jump into every picture and tries to be the centre of attention.

    cam whore
    someone who spends a good portion of the day taking pictures of him or her self, using digital camera, computercam, or picture phone. you can identify a cam whore using these guidelines:
    a) you are viewing a page on lj, myspace, friendster, flicker, a blog, or some other self-publishing/publicizing site
    b) the subject is wearing a serious, seductive, pouty, or emo expression
    c) the subject is complete with hipster clothes and / or hoodie, dark eye makeup, tousled hair, and some kind of prop or accessory ( ie, huge earrings, guitar, pet, trucker hat )
    d) cam whores are usually identified by the tell-tale missing-forearm, a side-effect of holding a camera and pointing it at yourself. the alternate side-effect is a shot of the cam whore sitting in front of a desktop computer, looking off slightly to the left or right, with their hand placed on a mouse, in really bad lighting, due to the nature of computer cams
    e) these pictures usually come in large groups, repeating the same ( d ) and ( b ), providing an alternate ( c ), and on multiple ( a )s.
    i considered meeting him irl, but after i visited his myspace profile, i discovered he was a total cam whore.

    Yeah, the Photogs here aren't the camwhores... You need to look at some of the posts in the "services offered" section to find them.

    can be... originally cam hoard (hoarding the camera view everytime a picture is taken) but slowly evolved to be a cam whore... whoring oneself when a camera is in view so that his/her picture is taken.

    just a brief study, I can't stretch my arm, holding a D300 with MB, mounted with 17~55 and SB800, taking a photo of myself without the risk of injure myself, beside, that also beyong the minimum focusing distance.

    so for cam-whoring, I think it needs specialise camera and technique, so sorry unable to help TS.

    Shoot it with the camera on the bed like Edison.

    He has perfected the technique.

    The only problem I guess is to find the actresses.

    Do a search on Edison Chen for inspiration.
