    actually the most annoying is someone see you take photo somewhere, then when you're leaving, the guy go to exactly the same spot, pointing to exactly the same angle, then at night you see at clubsnap that someone post the exactly same photos like your

    Pissed the hell out of me.

    People blocking your camera/views while you have taken time to look for a good location, set up tripod.

    You prep your gear the night before, double check everything.

    Then next day 7-early 8-early you travel to some far far ulu place to set up your tripod. Camera mounted, you press the shutter button.

    Most annoying thing that happened tonite, was when I was focusing my model, adjust her hair, etc on the xmas tree and this india national came standing right in front of my camera, with his kid stepping on my feet, then blocked me completely! Obviously wanted to pose with my model , spent tons on her frock, props, shoes, preplanning, etc)

    Annoyed the hell out of me, i asked him to move aside, and told him to give me a minute for a snap, then I'll let him snap, he refused to budge! Asked him the second time, then the 3rd time, he finally moved a little but his big fat arms are blocking my focus, then shoved his kid to pose with my model! That's extremely rude!

    I finally signalled my model to move out immedietly.

    People should learn some manners, moreso, to at least ask for permission

    Last month in London, down to my last piece of bread, trying to get a macro wide angle shot shot of a squirrel. The mobile rang and my uncle (who I dislike) ask to speak to my mother.

    "She & Dad went for holiday at Ang Ko Wat , please call her mobile "

    "She did not pick up"

    "Uncle XXX. I am in London."

    "OK, can you tell your mom ..... (nothing important)"

    KNS, the squirrel ran off after eating the bread. i kanna pay oversea calls, and I have to info my mom his cow is getting married next year.

    I found out that there are also times when you want to take a photo of the crowd coming in head-on whilst your tripod and camera is planted in the middle of the path, say Orchard Road..
    The crowd splits.

    YES I AGREE. Totally ruins my effort of making a point to take photos from perspectives that no one else thinks of.

    please la

    it's all been done before

    don't think that you got something new everytime i do that, i come home and realise that someone else somewhere in the world is cursing and swearing as he sees my photo on flickr that his effort "of making a point to take photos from perspectives that no one else thinks of" has been ruined

    most irritating is when i shoot cats, especially when they are not so tame

    then some silly person will come along and exclaim in the loudest voice in the world

    "WAO WHAT A CUTE KITTY"

    then i have nothing to shoot already, the cat ran off

    what's more annoying than that is the guy's photo is MUCH better than mine, taken from exactly the same spot and same angle.
