can ask the goat help me carry my model's and my barang barang when i shooting
I got to work REALLY hard to keep my er... ahem... other half's interest going.
Work like crazy, poor me.
So late at night already, still got to crack my brain thinking of what else to advise the TS so that he can spend more time on photography.
(TS, sorry sorry, this is beginning to look like a Kopitiam thread.
Please forgive me. I will comply with your thread. Thanks for the OT! )
to the ts
you can ask her along when you go out to shoot, then can shoot pretty pictures of her too
thanks for all the suggestions... i really hate to cut down on it just when I starting to pick things up.
Did ask her to join me take up photography before but she keep saying you shoot nice can already. I no need learn... I am not a photography genius lor...
Getting a new prosumer seems a good idea so as to get her involved. .She keeps saying my dslr is heavy. I bought a LX3 recently without her knowing it. Maybe I would try it again and show the LX3 to her to get her involved.
I am increasingly busy these times and few will know wat kind of **** i got myself into when i got time i sleep. or eat. or work. i dunno how to make more time for photography. maybe honeymoon i shoot abit more to make up for the long paucity.
Woman can really be cumbersome if they find u spend too much time on it and they also dun have the patience with u to wait for the shot... think maybe some of u will understand.
fret not my freiend. there are ways to get around these. make it a point to bring that cam EVERYTIME you and her go for a walk,dinner,meet ups or any other activities. just take candid shots of her, later show it and tell her how nice/cute/beautiful/sexy/ she is. never ever give smoky compliments to them, somehow they know that you are lying.
like others have said in here, you can try to take shots inside the house, near the window or anywhere for a start. that's what i've been doing. and i take shots of my wife cooking, doing house chores and her 'showcased glasswares' and antiques. when she said,'eh this is nice ah', i'm just happy to hear that. for woman, they just want to hear and feel nice things from husbands, if you know what i mean. so that cam and photography can be part of that 'nice' things for her.
if you need more tutorials pm me
TS u are not alone......haha....
1. Shoot in the early morning when family is still asleep. Landscapes, morning scenes, markets, morning activity all fit well into this. If they wake at 9+ to 10am, even better. You can then slot in macro, plants, in fact anything..
2. Shoot inside the house. Still life, product shots.
3. Shoot photos of your family.
4. Shoot immediately before or after work. Sunsets. City lights, etc
1. om my way to work
2. during lunch
3. on my way back home
4. while waiting to pick up daughter from class
it all depends on your choice of subject
get a cam tat makes it easy 4u to bring out daily (i used a gf-1)
Then steal time(see opportunity) & shoot...flower. street.....etc....ez when u are in sales
if office job....hmm.....dont voyuer!
I tried poisoning my gf to take up photography but it isn't her thing. Thus I'm now a loneranger...losing sleep to sneak a couple of hour here and there.... before or after meeting her.
TS, I think if photography is your one major hobby, she should be more understanding and allow you the time to grow in this hobby.
Now if you're already spending a lot of time on other interests besides her (eg. car modification, computer gaming, etc), then you really have no excuse
But seeing how most girls like to take photos of themselves or their friends, it would amaze me if a girl wasn't remotely interested in photography.
My gf refuses to get a DSLR, but she's using an LX3, and we sometimes go out to photograph landscapes together sharing 1 tripod. I think that's a good compromise... There was some initial reluctance, but now she's more addicted than me sometimes!!
