Enjoy yourself, ladies, at your outing.
Mods, maybe it is a good idea to remove the kajiao talk off the thread.
Ladies, I think it is a good idea for you to meet up first, if not at seed, perhaps at a seperate outing.
And have fun. Don't let all the kajiao spolit it.
Wait for me ... Me Also very interested in this Gathering !! Thanks Dolphin for organising

i think we shd all heed the advice of our seniors here. let's attend SEED first and we'll see how it goes from there ok?

I am sure we can all co-exist in the photography community if there is mutual respect for each other.

that is the problem here! most people often have the perception that photography is more for males rather than females. which is why people tend to raise their eyebrows when they see girls running around with heavy camera equipment. the fact that guys are more technically knowledgeable doesn't make us ladies fall short of being good photographers right? what else can i say? this is a sexist & male-dominated world which puts us in a disadvantage!
u watching and reading the thread too?????Originally Posted by Myst
is this a fact? i didn't know that...........Originally Posted by vivientan
dear vivien.....remember there is going to be a ladies group?? well...the situation can change in our little world Personally feel that photography is all about how sensitive you are to the world around you, your perception of it and how to capture and communicate it via photos (using p & s camera, digital or manual cam - of which ever brand or make)....it is all very subjective...i am sure the females can offer a different perspective to a male-dominated photography world. Nothing to feel that we are 'disadvantaged' in anyway at all. So no worriesOriginally Posted by vivientan
Not necessary, there are always vice versa. And being technically knwledgeable doesn't automatically make one a good photographer. It's always practice, practice and practice that makes a better photographer, regardless of gender.Originally Posted by vivientan
It's true that the photographic world is more male-dominated. But don't lose heart, I'm sure with perserverance, one can beat any odds.
vivientan: this is a sexist & male-dominated world which puts us in a disadvantage!
In today's (24 Nov 2003) STREATS, Page 16, Conrad Raj talks about men being disadvantaged!
I believe that groups of people with similar interest should be encouraged to meet, be it man-woman, old-young, nature-studio, digital-film, etc.
My wife takes pretty good photos with point-and-shoot or SLR, I'm proud of her! She can even tell me how and what to shoot, and I provide the technical know-how. So if that's the case, who is the photographer?
All the best for your outing, ladies.
Because photography is a simple art to imitate, easy to be a wannabe, and has enough tech to appeal to the gearheads with delusions of granduer.Originally Posted by AJ23
As such, I normally prefer interacting female photogs, simply because it's usually a good break from equipment wankerism, and that a discussion on style (no matter how much I disgree with) is a far more productive one.
well said.Originally Posted by YSLee
IMHO, technique will always outshoot equipment.
I agree..... it's the eye for detail and imagination that makes one good...... which I am sadly lacking...... cos still trying to grapple with some basic technical knowhow.......Originally Posted by AJ23
Anyway, I would really like to see the work of ladies... they really look at different things from guys....... refreshing u know...... do post galleries ladies... I know it's a pain to set up a gallery if u are not on digital
uhm.. i anything interesting also read 1. :P i born KPO.... lolOriginally Posted by lauLEE
