Until today, not one suay me when i'm shooting outside, whether on the street or in the woods.
If i was in your shoes that day kena suay by those girls, i will definity suay back by saying:
Wah!!! So many chicken roaming CT nowaday.
have u seen the "light" yet?
then anyone hanging a casanova tee ?
Even guys also complain lor...
I was street shooting the other day with a 50mm on my 1.5 crop factor DSLR and I spotted some ppl reading the bus stop info panel very intently, so I walked till I was past the panel and turned around and snapped a shot and promptly turned off and walked away.
Then one guy LOUDLY proclaimed... wah, why he shoot me huh? I was like (in my mind), I wasn't even shooting you, why are you complaining?? Din't even know how he looked like anyway...
Photography in Singapore is no longer fun. It was suppose to be an enjoyable hobby for some of us and a source of income for some. But now.. HAiz.. give up.
Shoot street, you get something like what TS got..worst case I heard is kena atacked.
Shoot Buildings, security come to disturb.
Shoot models, haha you can read lot and lots of interesting happenings reported in this forum.
Even shooting Nature is not spared. Just last saturday, I was out shooting at LP. No subject to shoot so was actually resting. Camera setup on Tripod pointing down. A group of about 20 youngster. (from slang and outlook like PRC students) came by. One of them for no reason peek into my Lens from the lens hood side. I dunno want to laugh or not but decided to act blur. Some days I will get question like what you shooting? Sometime I will answer them Birds. Sometime I get naughty and answered "Tiger" followed by a very soft Shrike. (Tiger shrike is a bird)
Bottom line is be happy and do what you deem right. Photography to me was an enjoyable hobby and will continue to be.
with millions in sg, and billions in the world, u can drop the idea of pleasing everyone.
juz do what u like. provided its morally and ethically right lah.
btw, i havent encountered such stuff before..
the only time people commented on me was when i was shooting at chinatown during CNY period in 2007, i took a photo of the paper-cutter (those.. red paper cutting, chinese tradition) while he was cutting one for me (yes i bought one..) then he saw me taking photo and asked "you photographer from the newspaper?"
feel so flattered.. haha
