Just need some bo-liao answers for some bo-liao questions..
As I am using a SLR for my shots (I'm only 19 BTW), my friends (and some of them are also into photography, although they may not have a SLR) are very fascinated with my F80.
So much so to the extent that they tend to borrow my camera and burn film.
My camp recently had a celebration day, and that I brought my SLR along to learn from a photographer in my unit (and to learn on taking photos as well.) So there I was, together with my 'mentor' and my camera.
There's always these 2 guys in my unit that always ask me whether I could lend them the camera to take some shots. So I agreed. But little that I know that they were those 'trigger happy' types, and started to anyhow shoot. Perhaps they were trying to get those arty-farty shots (as they are from Film, Sound, Video in Ngee Ann.)
I had to ask them for my camera back, else they would have continued shooting (as I brought quite little film on that day.) I even had to remind them that "Hey, leave some film for me to shoot" before they could constrain themselves.
I have already quite a hard time spending $$ on developing and printing the shots, and sometimes, I use slides, which are even more costly on my photo hobby.
Now, the million-dollar question is:
How do I go about telling them this in a nice manner?
I don't want to sour any relationships, but I can't seem to think of any nice way to put this across....
