    hold it. u guys arent getting the point. our friendly ts hasnt even seen the photos taken with those supposed settings.

    now why are u all assuming tat the photos are nice?

    cause commonsense tells u tat a 1 sec handheld shot in a dimmly lit restaurant is gonna screw u really hard. even with flash.

    now pls. consider tat the photos arent even of "decent" quality. why are we even discussing how tat shot is possible/ if tat photographer is pro?

    cause he isnt. i'll bet my signboard on it.

    dun believe see this.

    I wonder why, but he looks reallly pro with his equipment so I think he must be right.
    shoot the esplanade with build-in flash light hand-held; turn right, shoot the flyer with flash hand held; turn around, shoot buildings with the same technique too
    After that he proclaims "Swee, very nice". I'm impressed. He is using the same camera as me. How does he hand hold for 1 sec? Is there something wrong with my technique?
    i think u all get wad i mean. TS didnt see the photos. and therefore this is a total waste of time. cause i comfirm plus chop u tat u cant do tat. the photos will just screw up.

    While I have no issue (ie. non of my business) to be bothered what people wants to do with their lives, I do get irritated by some of their specific behaviors.

    Shooting streets and candids are perfectly fine, but these folks need to understand that the normal people who hangs out would appreciate some social grace.

    Examples of anti-social behaviours by people with cameras (at least in Singapore):

    1. Causing obstruction at major walk-paths;
    2. Creating unnecessary noise, commotion and attention (especially when shooting their friends or amateur models);
    3. Hogging locations and not giving others (even those without a camera) to have a view of a place;
    4. Bragging loudly and publicly about how he or she is about or had taken the shot on location;
    5. Stalking and tailing other photographers;
    6. Trying to teach their friends (incl. boy/girlfriends) how to shoot a picture loudly and perhaps with flawed ideas;
    7. Shooting people in public in paparazzi style; and
    8. Giving the general public the rude (chin-up) look.

    While it puzzles me where these folks got all the monies to burn for pride and self-esteem, what puzzles me even more is what is there to achieve other than that.

    Sometimes I wished the crime rates on the streets are higher which will make people more cautious with their prize of pride that makes them behave less irritatable to the civil public.

    At the end of the day, it is the image that matters, regardless of what was used- even if it's not by a camera.

    Have you notice that the phenomenon of people posting photos online and immediately locking their threads to prevent comments or further communication? What does that say about the author of the photos posted?
    it says they arent proud of their photos? or just too stuck up always thinking they are "professional-photographers-i-already-know-everythinhg-pwns-u"

    ~~. no learning attitude? no matter how pro u are we'll just climb over ur head. cause u wont improve. yet all of us who wanna improve will and overtake u

    Not if you turn the chair around and put your chin on it, then you hook both of your feet around the table legs and rest your elbows in two bowls on the table.

    You'll get a 1 second perfectly exposed sharp photo. Don't believe can try it in a restaurant next time.

    dun play play with those 2 guys. one can sit on you until you cannot breath, the other one can make you run until you cannot breath. dont make them make you pick a choice.

    Anyway those are olympus outing shot la, we borrow big big lense from olympus service center and the 2 guys are guarding the big lenses. One is 300mm f2.8 prime lense and the other is 90-250mm f2.8 (constant) lense.

    I think after this thread, we can safely say that at least for a few weeks until another chap tries this stunt, we won't see these hypocritical and hyper-critical threads...

    In summary:

    If you see someone doing something which looks odd, ask him if it is something special, or help him/her out and make a new friend!
