    2) you go slower and end up with less unique perspectives because everyone's floating around the same place

    It's like holiday travel. The bigger the group (think tourists hauled from attraction to attraction by the busload) the more mainstream/less unique your experience. Think about it- if you were taking a photo from a certain location, it's unlikely for some photographer in this street photography group to go to the opposite side to try for a different angle. Because then you two get into each other's frames. So, everyone ends up shooting more or less from the same perspective and ends up with mediocre shots.

    At the end of the day, street photography is a lot about capturing the Moment-- and it's brief and fleeting so you need to be fast when it happens. In a group, you lose that ability to be spontaneous.

    The best street photography I've ever seen and done myself have all been the result of solo trips.

    Bottom line: this genre of photography is tough as it is. Don't make it harder on yourselves.

    My two cents.
    Well said.

    70-200 for street photog is like carrying a cannon.... it attracts too much attention, it won't work...

    Street photog means more than photos taken on a street.... It's all about timing and showing snippets of life and being in the action.

    as Robert Capa says,

    the first rule is to get close, second is to get closer.

    Just to share..
    I've joined only a few group shoot and the major disappointment is the lack of sharing after..
    There is an incredible amt of learning from looking at photos taken by someone else, ard same time, same place, often same subject.

    Could be same subject, maybe taken from another angle which looks amazing, and you wonder why didnt you think of that... Good or not so great, theres much to learn.

    I'll suggest that everyone NOT be shy or proud. Put ego aside and just be open. Of course be polite and humble.
    After the shoot, ALL meet at a cafe, and then pass cam/card after, see what others have shot. Otherwise wasted lah..
    Plan for it as an impt part of the session, even end shoot earlier if necessary to cater for this sharing.

    It may very well be the most rewarding time spent that evening...

    Hi guys I think redmonsoon is right about sharing the photos afterward...hope we still have time to sit down and talk/discuss on how to improve our skill (just dont be so sarcastic on C&C's - if we leaned together, we can move further in this kind of field).

    Newbies to newbies is still ok , as long you are open minded on C&C's

    Seeyah tomorrow!

    I would suggest you guys to stay back to shoot night christmas lights also. That place should be decorated by now.

    ***THE SO CALL "UPDATE PLAN"......***

    To all who are joining..

    Just a short intro of me for easy meet up...Jun Ming, male, 22, chinese, short hair..n semi-plump....yup...


    Meeting place at Somerset MRT Control station.
    There is a posb atm machine at the left side when u come out from the mrt entrance (the machine where u tap your card).
    We shall meet there.

    Place be either slightly early or on time to prevent waiting time...

    I'll be bringing a piece of so call "attendance" hence, kindly let me know when u r there so i can indicate it.
    As for those who will/might be late, do sms me b4 hand ya, so we can wait for you but still..try to b on time..

    there will be more than 15 of us joining in the street shoot...(i know a bit too many for street photography..but quite bad to reject ya) hence... kindly find yourselves comfortable shooting partner/s cause probably we'll split out a little bit (unless we all wanna act like tourists hence able to walk as a grp...lol).

    Dinner will probably at ...far east where there are more fast food (more varieties, unless some1 can suggest a better place)...
    after dinner...we shall resume back shooting....but at that point of time...some might just go with their newly form group for their own shooting hence....kindly re-update me again..

    Thing to AVOID/DO:
    - If happen to be sharing/lending equipment/s, kindly stick 2gether as a group and have his/her number to ensure that you can get back your equipment cause somehow, something almost happened during 1 of the outing which i joined..but thankfully..the person got back his item which just happened to be a mistake/miscommunication only...
    Take note ya...

    pardon me if happen to be a bit bad in organising....cza all and enjoy..

    cheers!
