    My first job after schooling was a sale assistant job in a camera shop.

    One day a young man came in and asked for a polarizer.

    I was not into photography and didn't know what was a polarizer. And it was lunch time the senior salesman had gone to have lunch leaving me a junior to man the camera shop.

    So I asked him again, ".....So you want a po...polarizer?"

    He answered, '' You know the grey type of filter."

    So I went to the drawer and found a grey filter to sell to him.

    He took it and paid the money.

    Only afterwards I checked Hoya catalogue that I discovered I sold him a neutral density filter.

    Anyway I didn't last very long in that job.

    Need to confess, just happened recently. Thought it's about time to take my Nikon out for some macro since I bought a macro lens..got everything packed and left for the park. Found a nice subject, unpack and set up my cameller... the last thing I pull out was a Canon flash... ...and I didn't even bring a bounce.....

    My boss always told us not to say no to a customer. If the customer asked for a Pentax camera and we didn't stock that brand, we should sell him Panasonic or Sony camera and convince him that was the best decision he had ever made.

    So I took out a monopod and told him,

    "Look here Sir. This is a European made walking stick. It's called Manfrotto. It is collapsible and has got three sections."

    The Ang Moh was impressed. He told me it was the first time he saw a 3-section collapsible walking stick. It was just something he wanted for travelling around.

    So I had made another sale on that day. Unfortunately it was my only sale that day.

    Was staying overnight in Mekong River. Woke up suddenly and saw the time on the watch saying that it was 4.30am. Put on shoe, grabbed the bag and started running - cos the sunrise was 5am, and the spot was some 2 to 3km away.

    Reached the sunrise spot, was alone and was puzzled that there was not even a single person. I waited and wondered whether I had gone to the wrong place. Waited for an hour and it was only then that I realized that I forgot to adjust the 1 hour time difference. Incidentally, it became cloudy and there was no sunrise that day.

    When I first got my compact digital cam in mid 2002, not many people had seen one before. Everytime I brought it out for shoots, people would stand behind me, trying to peek into my screen. This made me feel really uneasy and a lot of times, I didn't press the shutter because of the stress.

    There was once I was shooting long exposure night scenery in a garden festival. Put my compact cam on a flat railing cos i didn't have a tripod at that time, and set it to timer mode to avoid moving the cam when i released the shutter. There were people watching behind me as usual, and heard several comments:

    girl#1: "What's she doing?"
    girl#2: "Got anything to take meh?"

    (as timer beeps off)
    guy: "camera facing wrong side liao!"
    (some people almost never take a photo without any people in it)



    Somehow i'm glad photography is more common now

    1. After getting a used D70 as my first DSLR and playing around with it (tried many many features) for weeks, I finally found the cause of the inconsistency of Nikon metering under A mode.

    It's... bracketing (forgot to switch it off after trying).

    No wonder my shots kept appearing proper, under, over, proper, under, over...


    2. After getting an external flash, I thought my skill must be improving. So to speak, image must be sharper (since I could freeze the motion, and I expect max sharpness), so I set F/9, 1/250, ISO 200 while shooting indoor - object was fine but not well-lighted; background was in total darkness. Thought flash was not working fine, tried a few shots more... blame the lousy flash. Then "accidentally" changed to 50mm since I need a nice bokeh... By shooting F/1.8, the background got brighter... No wonder senior said prime lens is better.


    3. I expect the clouds to be a good bouncing plane, so I pointed my flash head upwards even when I'm shooting outdoor. *You can hear the capcitors working very hard to recharge after every shots taken.
