Hi all ! I'm a newbie in photography. I would like to share an unpleasant experience i had over the wknd. I was at Vivo City on Sunday hoping to capture some shots of the bridal gowns fashion show. I was there sort of like abt 45 mins before the show. To my surprise, when i reached the stage, it was already full of photogs ( like 3 rows thick ). Well so i tell myself next time for events like these must come earlier.
The irritating thing is i see 4 or 5 pgs right in the second row standing on their step ladders right smack in the centre of the stage. All of them seemed like lao jiaos and were all using zooms. I was lucky enough to squeeze in the 3rd row by the side. As the time draws near...more pgs came and i could see all of them showing disappointment on their faces and many were shaking their heads at the group on step ladders. Can you imagine that almost the whole centre part from the stage is completely blocked by that inconsiderate group! As a pg, i feel pai seh cos when i turn bk i could see those true audiences some with their kids on their shoulders and some with their PnS all trying so hard to catch a glimpse but was denied a better view bcos of the rows of pgs in front and worst of all on step ladders!
Perhaps i may be wrong but i shud think that pgs shud use step ladders only at the rear of the audience. I didnt take much shots due to inaccessability but mostly bcos i felt lousy. For a moment...i felt so embarrassed at being a pg joining the squeezing in the front. Bcos of this incident, i've told myself that i will not put myself in these situation again.
I'm just curious if anyone has had experience like this before???
