guys, no need to feed the troll.
let it growl under the bridge, after a while with no bone to gnaw, it will go away.
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.
I'm amazed though by the reactions of the "victims", quite subtle and nonchalant about it.
I guess everyone has their own different personal style, its hard to please everyone on what is "ethical" or not, grey areas here & there.
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.
Hua hee jiu ho.
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.
interesting happenings and expressions...

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
