    Default Shoot alone or in groups?

    Just wanna ask fellow photographers here.
    Do you guys prefer shooting alone or in groups?
    I'm talking about going all around places like Little India and Chinatown alone for the entire day.

    Why must shoot in groups? For company? Or u scared to go out alone? Shooting in groups less intimidating is it?
    Why must shoot alone? More time to think about your picture? No need to follow other people's schedule?

    Don't need to choose only one... I just do whatever I like.

    for me it depends on situations.

    sometimes for specific kinds of shoots, i like to shoot alone, get it done and go home. with groups sometimes I tend to chat more than shoot

    for casual shoots, i like to shoot in a group. when I run out of ideas, a fellow group member may come up with something that I didn't think of

    i've been shooting photos alone these days. sometimes with another friend or 2.

    i only go out with people i'm familiar with, max about 7 of us but it seldom peak at that number.

    Well personally I shoot alone because I'll have more time to think. No more "better move on he's waiting". But what I don't like is when I get tired of shooting and am taking a rest, there isn't anyone to talk to.

    Maximum I can go is around 4 person. But usually I shoot at 2, though mostly alone, and sometimes 3. The good thing is, of coz, someone to chat with when I'm tired. And if I hold the camera up and see "I need a human there..." I can just grab the guy beside me and throw him upfront =D there's one thing I particularly dislike about groups though. When I found something nice, he'll go "hey yeah it's cool" and he gets the shot too. The shot isn't unique to myself anymore. I can choose to keep quiet of coz

    It's like she's there to stand around and get into the shot a few times, but still get paid

    yes, the beach at both side of jetty is accessible.
    the boardwalk on the right side of jetty is open to public, that is where the beach with all the rocks located.
    but the Punggol Promenade is not open to public yet, from the right side of jetty all the way to the metal bridge connecting Lorong Halus wetland reserved and riverside walk.

    Sometimes I see one whole group of people shooting together on the streets, victimizing cats, ah peks, crows and old bicycles, and I thought to myself "hmm, they must be from Clubsnap, hahaha"Had never shot in a group.As an amateur, don't like to wait for people.As a pro, don't like to share the money.
