Thread: Camera with you, walking on the streets.

  1. #1

    Default Camera with you, walking on the streets.

    I was just wondering, when you bring your camera out, do you keep them in the bag until there is something to take, or walk around with your camera hanging?

    camera will be hanging on my shoulder strap, power on at all times, lcd screen off (to conserve batteries). for quick grab shots, shoot using the viewfinder, otherwise frame using the lcd. can easily shoot for a whole day on a single set of batteries. a small & light camera helps.
    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    Default Camera

    I keep it in the bag until something happens. However if it is my prosumer then I would have it around my neck or holding it...ready for a shot.

    My camera is always with me in my bag wherever I go.. I used it when I'm waiting for friends, when I see interesting things..

    If I'm on a dedicated photo trip, then it's always in my hand...

    When I take the camera out walking the streets, my wife always carries the camera and I carry the shopping bags.

    Have you try to shoot carrying 3 shopping bags with two hands?

    for street shoots, it is advisable to hang it around your neck, just like a tourist.

    1. they think you are a tourist
    2. won't be surprised if you snap at anything and everything
    3. if you snap them, see point 1 & 2
    4. security people will approach you if you suddenly flip out a camera, so you want point 1 and apologise
    5. smile at those who notice your camera, make some gestures and take a shot of them.
    6. you won't miss opportunities and see point 5 for more opportunities

    Good points. May I add three further points to enhance the "Singapore tourist" image?

    7. Wear a Merlion T-shirt.

    8. Carry a Singapore streetmap.

    9. Drop "lah" at the end of sentences.

    Now you can go everywhere in the island and shoot at everything at will. The only problem is that the shopkeepers and hawkers might want to charge you more.

    ... Haa.. Isn't like like too overkill just for a photo shoot? I dunno if i can pass off as a tourist.. haha shall try..

    Lightbulb well....

    well... when I was younger, I acted like a showoff... adopting a camera ready to shoot posture. But now, for security reason, I usually do not show my camera until ready to shoot, especially in areas where I am unsure of my security. It could be that now I am more aware of the difficult economic times we are experiencing.

    Anyway, I thought MrBig is very self righteous? Now suddenly interested in voyeruism? Amazing...
