    Default Do you take your camera with you at all times?

    Y'know, most photography literature and experts tend to suggest that we should all bring our camera with us all the time. I wonder how many of us practice this? I love the idea but don't do it in practice.

    Like this morning, when I was jogging around the Esplanade to Clarke Quay and the light was very good, hitting the buildings at all the right places BUT no camera!
    There were many many instances where I have regretted not having a camera with me such as when I saw a father carrying his 2 young daughters to school on his SHOULDER (a good candid street scene), or a maintenance man cleaning the glass roof (I was standing right under him) and many more...

    I still don't have camera with me all the time.. I'll never learn

    Yes, I do take a camera with me all the time and no, it is not my bulky DSLR but a high-end compact. It may not take the best quality pictures but it is always there when I want to capture something.

    Maybe can start a thread "Shots you missed because you weren't carrying a camera". Should be an interesting one.

    I wished i could bring my camera around too, but i can't due to workplace restriction. Sometimes i also see scenes which are so nice for capturing but without camera... Too bad.

    Isn't a HP a camera? Everybody is carrying one.

    But if no camera, then no shots wor... will be tough to make it interesting.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    Everyday man... I got into photog cuz I was... still am, very much into photo journalism which unfortunatelly has now been labelled as STOMP... which has now been labelled as kaypo society. But no, am not the regular stomper, no way.

    Unless I'm going out to shoot, don't bring out the camera. On Sunday, would have loved to have brought the camera with me to East coast as the moon rising up from the horizon was orangish-red. Getting some drinks and watching F1 took precedence...

    I try to bring a compact at least. It was surprising to note the number of interesting shots I would otherwise have missed. Sure, technical quality may not match a DSLR, but at least I get the shot. A lot better than telling the story of the-one-that-got-away

    In my case, worst case scenario is phone camera. This happens when it's just a morning jogging session.
    Once I'm out with a bag, that means I'll bring at least a pocket camera. In the case that I know that day is a full leisure moment, go around... then take my dSLR along.
