    True lah.. juz that couldn't figure out why they wanna do that as compare to just googling for pictures..

    Taking events pictures can be quite stressful, I guess (if good pictures are desired).. Not sure about paid shoots thou.. coz never been to 1 before..

    btw, just want to add that for events, there ARE photographers who is there for photography as primary objective.

    A simple fact, some of the photographers are ladies..

    never mind that they actually planned to go to a computer show, camera show, motorcycle show, car show, sole purpose was to capture more pokemon models to "bring home".. when the primary focus of that show is not even supposed to be the models. but the organisers of these shows know that, so they produce the supply to meet the demand.

    i'm sure we all remember the sunshinetracy incident.. that is a clear example what all this is all about.

    and you are right, the difference between porn on the internet and this is that there is probably some amount of intangible delight to be derived from having seen the person in reality before. a porn model remains a porn model, far and unreachable, but the person you have seen in real life, well, it's not hard to see how it works, right?

    for the people who liken this to be like landscape photography, cat photography, insect photography - the main difference is that all those have nothing to do with embracing your primal desires and just using photography to cover up. the previous 3 categories also have photographers in it for the sake of saying that they do photography, but that's more of an ego/face issue rather than giving in to the lower head.

    a proper portrait is hard to execute - so many people here claim that they want to "capture the beauty and soul" of the person, i don't see how in an uncontrollable environment like a show of any form, this could be done. let alone the fact that the models aren't necessarily wearing things that suit their so-called soul and personality - common factor is revealing, revealing, revealing.. so what is the real purpose here, you can imagine.

    that said, just because one only shoots in a studio where everything is controllable doesn't mean a thing to me. there will also be cases where people putting up pretenses of being morally upright are the worst of the lot. this also includes me - and the difference between a good person and a bad person, a serious photographer or one who's just using photography as an excuse for other things - is whether you bother to keep yourself in line. boys will be boys, that much is true, but can you exercise the appropriate amount of self-restraint to keep it pure?

    at the end of the day, if you can look yourself in the mirror and honestly, honestly speak to your conscience and be at peace with it, that's what matters. which is why i said, if your conscience is clear, and you shoot all these for pure aesthetic reasons, or to just test out your gear, whatever... you won't bother about what i say, right? you won't fall into that category.

    anyways, we are going way off topic. this will be my last post on the matter... and i don't know for sure what TS is trying to say with his pictures.. but well, in any case, just sharing my thoughts. cheers.


    Well said...

    anyways, like i said, it's a personal opinion, you don't have to agree with me, and i don't have to agree with you.

    lol so many shallow POV...

    Anyway, back to the actual topic ....
    Are the pics above taken with PnS or DSLR? I don't really follow the 'story'.
    I was expecting to see quality PnS pics, but not even sure what i'm looking at.
    Why are the DSLR users about to get pissed?
    Where's the pics that the guy with PnS is taking?

    Seriously, I'm not sure what the real fuss is about in this thread...

    Everyone is entitled to do what they want to do with or without their cam, and who is anyone to tell them to get a life??? I may not like nor endorse what they do and what they shoot, but hey, let's not get into straight-jacket, streotyping mindset.

    If one works with an open-mind, one can see and learn more...

    I choose not to..... Cuz I can use it as an excuse of my lousy works....

    Joking aside, I think I see another pns in #1 near the top right corner. That guy in front is not the only pns user.

    Maybe he is the only one subject that is easier to isolate compared to the one mingling behind?

    I think the "we" is more referring to "you"
    That was supposed to be your last post on the matter, what happened? Seems like you're one of the people that needs to get a life

    I'm still waiting for the TS to answer my questions. Seriously, this thread is more suitable for kopitiam.

    "the matter" was with regards to my views on GWC at events shooting models. i had hoped that most people who chose to see themselves as deep would not see themselves as GWC, so i'm surprised you fail to see that the last post was not "on the matter".

    the last post was about me happily explaining to you the possibility of my being enlightened in the future when i am near 40, and desperate. perhaps i could see your more advanced and much more well-thought out point of view then. now and then when i am feeling all lonely, i could take a happy snap or two with some cute little young models to embrace my youth again and life will be better for just that moment.

    i can look through my viewfinder and see a young girl smiling at me, life is so sweet. you know, i'm starting to see what you mean now actually.

    i think i shall go to the next event, ask some models to pose with me... and feel happy.

    Gal With Camera.. quite a number of them actually.. And at the events, sometimes you'll see gals accompanying the male version of GWC too..

    Sometimes.. one snaps while the other waits..

    Sometimes.. both snap together.. nice that they share something in common..
