    You must thank him If not nobody do not know you are show off.Ask him do he or she got a great cam to shoot or gut to shootfor the candid shoot or not.There no need to get so angry or piss off.You are the one to shoot candid shoot.Why he so busy body. None of his business.No happy,go outside of the school talk. One to one.

    When out with friends, be with your friends, and not with your camera. There are photographers who may be socially awkward and all they do is keep hiding behind the camera.

    really?
    From what I notice I think I heard your DM mention something last year about banning Psps from school cause it was expensive and a distraction in class :P

    anyways a good answer to most questions would be:
    Why Not?

    I use that to answer all of my friends questions.
    Much to their annoyance.

    School boys masak masak (play play) talk only lah. nobody really mean anything they say, just itchy mouth only.
    just smile and walk away, ignore their taunting.
    dont provoke back.

    the trick is to keep getting your friend involved.

    candid, funny and flattering shots of your friend will make him appreciate what you do

    one day, he might even help u PA

    so, how to tlk back on this 2 scenario?
    just tell them, for the first question..

    SOMEDAY I WILL HAVE XMM MOLLEH AS GF, THEN YOU WILL CRY

    of course this is not a true scenario, but that's apparently what a lot of people think

    for the second one, you should express your displeasure by throwing your camera at them..


    jokes aside, who cares? if your conscience is clear, and you know that your conscience isn't warped, then you don't have to justify yourself to anyone, save yourself.

    Just blow him a flying kiss if you are in a good mood. Otherwise, in a bad mood. Tell him this. "Be a man, do the right thing"

    from what i see, these may be appropriate responses:

    1. "i must take photo of everything so people think i'm a photographer. then i can pay girls who think they are very pretty to take photos for them, because otherwise i would have no chance to talk to or interact with girls at all. hopefully they will be impressed by the big camera, and i can take them out to dinner."

    2. "the camera makes me feel superior and technically competent. this is to compensate for my lack of self-esteem and boost my confidence."

    aiya, anyway once you start speaking in complete sentences, your friends' eyes will glaze over and they will just nod their heads and walk away.

    Maybe you should ask yourself, why you want to talk back.

    To tell them your true intention or just to win.

    Say "At least I got sumting to show off. My camera better than yours."
    Just make sure they dont have a Mamamiya or Hasselbald to bash you with, er Oly E-3, Canon 1D, 5D, Nikon D3 are also quite hard on the head cos they have metal body not just plastic. And make very sure you have buddies behind you who wont run away and help you fight in case he decide to give you a knucle burger, or you have some leet figthing skillz like those in coming book (best if look like dragonball comic book).

    Develop a thick skin. It will help you in a long run.
    hehes no leh not taking military stuff but back last year for my graduation video we made for our teachers, i had to use by 40-150 hid it in my bag and stick the lens out just nice to catch the teachers face at the most akward moment.

    kinda fun though =)

    and yes in school sure have lots of jealous kia.

    just ignore them.

    it beats going home to just sit in front of the com and dota dota dota all the way then fail exams !!

    and yes theft do happen thats when i bring my cam to school i always carry it where ever i go, even to the toilet.

    if i have to leave it i leave em with someone i trust.

    kids and their hormonal surge...

    you answer back simply for 1 reason, to console your manly pride, to retain your ego.

    if its not for this case, dun need to answer back. and look at them and smile sweetly, and ignore them. you dun need to answer to them anything you do. they are not your parents.
