    Hi mod,

    Apologies for totally missing out on this event.

    Was so occupied with my son's o level result and some family matters and slip my mind on the talk.

    Not intentional. Hope your understanding.

    Great to be able to catch it in you tube.

    Anyway, thanks to Nikon and ClubSNAP for making this happen!

    Regards

    Was a really insightful talk by Joe. But I'm kind of bothered by all those camera beeps and focus assist lights shining on Joe during his speech, really feel sorry for him.
    Is it just me or it is not very polite to do that?

    couldn't hear the beeps from where i was seated, but the assist lights was rather distracting and not polite.

    I don't get why some people would want to take pictures if you want a picture of the guy wait for him outside im sure he will be more than accommodating or at least turn off the beep on your camera I was sitting next to a guy who kept taking pictures with his girlfriend....Some people just want to show off. " look at me.... i have a camera....."

    btw i just realized something did everyone bring their cameras i saw a lot of people with camera bags i even saw one with a trolley bag was there a shoot? hehehe

    I enjoyed the talk. Was a bit caught off-guard by his comments on Ansel Adams but apparently its not the first time he did.

    Not only cameras. I see lots of folks with tripods as well. At first i was like, hmm, did i miss out anything? Was there going to be a shootout or something? Why is everyone prepared like going for a photo session instead of attending a talk on photography? The only thing I prepared was a pen and some papers to take notes, just in case. Turns out that was quite unnecessary as well.

    you know what would have been great... the part where he said he was going to give everyone flashes that could have been possible if only he asked the crowd to bring out their flash guns imagine having 100+ slave flashes going off at the same time... hehehe

    Actually I was confused at that time. What's up with that actually, anyone kind to explain? (if private, can pm me? XD)

    Whatever the case is, its still kinda rude to others as well as to Joe himself if you ask me, unless its like a big occasion say... some awards ceremony? Event photography but in this case, best not to do so

    There was like over 400 people, why image 100+?
