    or do what professional photographers do - turn off the LCD. Bob Madden - the NG's Lava Hunter said he seldom look at the LCD after taking the shots.

    i set my review time to 2 seconds and only look for compositional defects, but to do this you have to get your exposure and histogram right for each shot, it takes practice but eventually you will get used to it and those bigots won't stand around staring at your lcd.

    Or better still act like a tourist or something, or act tough and tell them to leave you alone, i'm sure most people will buzz off when asked to do so, unless you have one buff and mean guy behind you (chances are that this isn't likely because buff mean guys don't stand around and stare at people's lcds.)


    personally i think the most annoying thing when im shooting is 'CF FULL' flashing on my lcd.
    I refuse to List my camer@ equipment here.

    Go and print a shirt that writes "Please do not look into my LCD as I am taking photo."

    I would only agree on people blocking the front. One of few reasons why photographers get annoyed when people look at their camera LCD after shot is bec the photopgrapher is shy or not confident with their work. Thus fear that people will comment from behind.

    When a real photographer is into taking a picture, his/her mind is focus on the subject and not disturbed by surrounding. When the mind wonders around, the photographer is not in focus.

    Avoid peak period if you want to take quiet pictures.

    The most irritating thing to happen is some silly DSLR user who shoot continuously with full powered flash at the same subject you are shooting. Its not 1 or 10 shots. Its non stop until the subject is out of sight. (subject here refers to birds)

    What is most annoying. Hmmm.. oh yes. Your saw a nice scruptures with the perfect lighting, many visitor shares their turn... snap and go. You readied your camera and comes your turn. Suddenly a pair of love birds with a camera stands right into place and started discussing the composition... literally hogging the place for indefinite time. Your wave at them but the love birds turned blind. All other visitors have to go for an alternate site.

    Sounds romantic, they were completely immerse in their own world.

    Love bird 2. You readied you camera, target the macro subject on the leaves. Suddenly the whole branch begans to shimmer and you hear some voice, look the flower is nice. A pair of love bird starts posing closed to the shrub causing the entire plant to shake.

    Love bird 3. You readied you camera, target at the christmas balls deco. Waiting for that 1/40th second of clear unobstructed shot but somehow that 1/40 sec turns into mins. The ladybird was standing like a statue for the partner to figure out the camera.

    most irritating? idiots who walk pass me blocking my camera when i'm snapping stuff.

    i always have the courtesy to give people taking photos their space wihtout blocking them. usually i'll even purposely stand there help them block traffic.

    if ppl all ike tat. we photographers will be one happy group of ppl

    A lot of annoying situations, most are curious onlookers, and some mishaps I wouldn't blame. However, when you're shooting a theme such as hmm, heavenly being with wings? (happened @ the time I shot my DP which was a few days back), some idiot people came right in front of my model, using his HP cam and try to shoot her, while some squatting down way too close to her, trying to get a shot from underneath.

    Pissed the hell out of me.
