    until someone comes in and spoil the whole damn thing. i side no ones and i think Night86mare has some of the nicest pic over here.(to me at least.)

    This thread suppose to be no right or wrong. everyone has their own opinions so why blast him off? this thread was educative in the beginning till it starts to become a flamming thread. So we cannot have a prefer style or photographer is it? everybody tastes must synchronise. if u are not in syn then u are wrong? then what are nude potraits? some thinks is art and others porn? this thread is no longer purposeful anymore.

    You can say my name out. No problem with me.
    Did any point or any of my post any commented regard to Night86mare pictures?

    Dun really get what you are trying to say about the nude = art or porn?
    Porn is porn and art is art is two different thing! Thanks.

    let it growl under the bridge, after a while with no bone to gnaw, it will go away.

    things like:

    1) the fact that while i am residing within london, it is probably going to be only temporary, the mentality and approach is going to be different

    2) the fact that while the police there are given powers to harass photographers, the general culture is to ignore, rather than to confront. i have had 1 sole confrontation even when i do street photography much more extensively there; in the numerous holidays and shooting in singapore, i have encountered at least 5 occurences, when i only dabble in it.

    3) london buildings are for the most part, closer to each other. it is far denser in terms of building. i love light, i like to use it when shooting street photography. i am not interested in capturing a journalistic view of things. because of the layout of the city, it is much more conducive for that sort of photography.

    4) singapore is cosmopolitan to a degree, london takes it way further. other than the mixture of people, races, there are also issues like seasons, the manner of garb is much more fluid and varied. that is a fact.

    these are my reasons. i have a london thread in the streets and candids section, i am curious why you are still asking me to double post.

    much of what i see from singapore "street photographers" (self proclaimed) are just snaps of daily life. that, to me, is not street photography. something like what i see in HCSP and ESP in flickr, something that says something - and not just random snapshots that were taken with bokeh, or just given credit because "wa, you got balls to shoot like that"... that doesn't excite me.

    perhaps it is because i grew up in singapore, much of what is seen here has become mundane to me. i acknowledge that i am not being entirely objective here. but i know my point of view. and no one needs to take mine, because i am not trying to shove it down your throats.



    I really have to clap both hand to you bro.
    You dun have to re-edited your posted comment.


    Whatever it is bro! All the best to you! Post whatever you want!
    This is the only thread I posted a comment after years.
    To me I am not a pro I do not even act or talk like one.
    If I offend anyone here. Sorry guys. I speak the true
    and I speak what I feel is right.


    Cheers!

    omg i stumbled into that video last year and I hated it. I felt that it was intrusive ,offensive and unethical, but there are some good shots there although nothing too extraordinary.

    I'm amazed though by the reactions of the "victims", quite subtle and nonchalant about it.

    I quite like it actually, very upfront shooting style.

    I guess everyone has their own different personal style, its hard to please everyone on what is "ethical" or not, grey areas here & there.

    Yes, MAGNUM!

    I've been to NYC & stayed there for a while, I believe people like Bruce Gilden is what gives NYC its heart & soul.

    I think one of the guys from the rangefinder/compact section actually did capture Bruce Gilden on their camera, go check it out! I believe the thread is called "share some RF shots part 3" or something, should be somewhere near the back.

    Enough of the superfluous chat la..just go out and shoot. There are already enough snobs out there to thumb their noses at you because of your suposed mediocrity.

    Who gives a flying fck if someone thinks your shots are crap. As long as you're happy man. It's not like most of us do this for a living.

    I can't say I like his style, his care-less comments about his subjects' feelings and most of the are shots are so so in my context, though there are 1 or 2 'gem shots' I guess. But one thing I can't deny, he's a street photographer, indisputable, debatable perhaps, but indisputable

    I could learn one thing from him is his dare to take pictures of people up close, but I will choose not to ignore the negative feelings that might be generated from them and I don't use flash, which I think how some of those 'gem shots' were captured, unfortunately.

    Haha true enough. Well maybe I'm abit overboard with the ethical remark. Who am I to judge? I don't think we can get away with it on the streets of Singapore, can we? Anyone up for the challenge?

    later kena chase by some gangster with parang

    I still do shoot people upfront in their faces but without the flash. Using a manual RF camera, gotta calculate Guide Number everytime I fire a flash, not sure how Bruce Gilden does it though, he is the master, I am the greenhorn

    I did try flashing before but mostly shooting candids at events where there are cameras are here & there, so people wouldnt mind but not right out in the street

    i watched a few more of his youtube video and more of his work and I must say, kudos to him to be able to get those shots and I truly believe they're 'gem shots' in his eyes! putting aside how people might negatively react to his style (so far I guess his videos hardly show any negative reactions from his subjects, whether he edited out or not), based on the assumption that most subjects had no time to react in anyway and he really walked off fast (hit and run would be apt to describe what I saw), and he's happy to show the world of his work he's proud to achieve, in that respect, his results proved he's got it and he did what he think the right way to capture those images, good for him. again, if one fine day a man like him walked up to me and made the same shot of me, I'd make known my negative reactions to him, it sounds really irony since I'm a photog trying to achieve the same results, perhaps this subconciousness of feeling too much for the subject is hampering my ability? I don't know, so the story goes....

    You must be super thick-skinned and a little short circuit in the brain to take pictures like him, have you hear how he talk to those people on the streets??

    And for the comment on the gangster with parang, it will happen, no joke
