    Eh, just to point something out, there are times where paid photographers would be segregate to another location for shooting, it would not be mixed with freelance shooters location.

    For instance, my case, the walk show photographers are standing infront of a barricade while FL shooters like us are to stand behind the barricade. Any people behind this barricade are "For all" area. You get to see FL shooters camera are even much better than the walk show official photographers, resulting some people misunderstood that the official photographers are in that line too.

    If authorised photographers, it is better to apply for a pass to go in take a better position than standing with us though.

Unfortunately, I'm not personally at that level yet, but I sure as hell wana try =p

    In the end I can say is: Skill, Practices and know your equipment.

    It take practices to know your equipment well followed by gaining skill from there.

    Don't worry, always learn from the wrong to get it correct. I am sure all can do it.

    And most important thing, always take in criticism from others, cos it make you perform even better next time by learning to improve from criticism.

    It's because the AE86 only races downhill courses la. Uphill against a 300BHP Evo it'd be beaten hands down

    Hey, well said, two200!
    A good photographer not only produces good shots (and of course, that will mean that there is a higher tendency for him to have a slightly better set of equipment as he would appreciate them), but also would have a certain code of conduct. In my opinion, photography is a special field where many experienced photographers would be more than willing to share and teach, than to hold back their techniques.
    Many experienced photogs whom I met in camera shops, photo shoots, photo trips, kopi tiam (real one outside, not the CS one) have spent hours after hours teaching me and enlightening me, despite just only knowing each other for a couple of hours!
    How's that for being magnanimous?

    actually, i would be more interested to know what lens the photographers are using, rather than the body.

    That's because no matter how much they teach you, in the end it's still up to you as you'll be the one finding the that angle, that light and pressing that shutter release. The real pros (and hobbyists alike) don't mind sharing exactly because they can still make better photos than the average joe who might also know just as much as they do.

    Back to the topic, I guess I am shy sometimes. Especially when everyone's carrying a p&s. haha.

    Anyways, something happened recently that got me thinking about this. I walked into a supposedly reputed camera shop recently with my camera with a pancake 30+ year old manual focus 20mm lens and the salesperson actually scoffed at me!

    "You use old lens ah?", he said. I have no idea why he is even wearing a Leica polo tee shirt.

    It must be because of such people that newbies are afraid to show their gear in public (although I feel that many people don't have a problem with this)...

    Nope. Not those uncles in kopitiam, but those good photogs whom I meet in the camera shop and then after that bring me to kopitiam and buy me a drink and start talking. ones... these!

    Yes precisely. And that is why experienced photographers never fear sharing because their experiences allow them the power to better photos then newbies.
    I am sure you will also agree that, when we talk to experienced photogs, here and there we would pick up pointers and tips that will make our process easier and refine our workflow. That is what I was referring to as their sharing. And that is why I say photography is a magnanimous industry (I hope I am right still).

    I was shooting an ultimate frisbee match during the singapore open earlier this year. There was someone with a nikon 200mm f/2, who I think was the hired pro for the competition. I was shooting along with my olympus 50-200mm, and he was the one who first inquired about my equipment! Didn't feel the need to be shy at all though, as I play the game myself and know how to take the shots.
