Yes. Quite a number of times too. Sometimes I just don't care. Either you take couple shots or you find a stranger to become 4! not possible! haha:)

I know why superstitious - cos you intend to take a couple shot but during processing photos negative in darkroom or download photo onto computer another person appear in the photo - now that's real bad luck i see :confused:

Then don't force it then, unwilling subjects usually don't make good photos anyways.

...this superstitious thing has happened to me on several occassions among friends and people I know from both Malaysia and Sing. Don't know where it's origin from but from my experience more rife among my Chinese friends than from my Malay and Indian friends/acquaintences.

Do I care? If they, the subjects balk, I walk. No point wasting a shutter count.

The first person created a frivolous story, and the rest believed. And passed on to the generations who can't rationalise it.
