i was there today.

One incident really pissed me off.

There is this guy using a sony DSLR and carrying a PnS with tripod (shooting video). I dun know if he is the official photographer or what cos one lady with him seems very close to those organiser, I saw them talking to each other (organisers) before the performance starts.

Back to this guy, i was there at 1pm found out i reached early so go walk walk then back ard 230pm. Thought i found a good spot then this guy suddenly pop up and without any courtesy just parked himself in front directly of me.

During the performance, he switch to his DSLR and PnS on and off, so irritating and every time he does that he blocks my view with part of his head and his hands (when he uses his DSLR).

I left after 1 hour after all the cos players came out. Very disappointed and pissed cos of this guy.

Sorry if i end up also blocking those brothers behind me, i really had to move left and right cos of this stupid guy who is trying to shoot photos and video at the same time! :angry:

As with all other events, it happens fairly often. Some people just lack the common courtesy, and are simple plain selfish. If there's a barricade or cordon, remember to shift all the way upfront so that nobody would be able to shift to your 12 o'clock. However, if there isn't any, be sure to voice out your displeasure if somebody comes along and conveniently hijacks your field of view.

With the upcoming Cosfest, I'm sure more of such ugly things are gonna happen. Good thing the cosplayers are roaming around freely and tend to pose for a significant length of time.

Was there also today, learn to shoot cosplay ..... probably include in one of those guys who block other's view :p but for real, the guy that sinned79 mentioned is not me ... :p

1. did not use PnS
2. Do not know the organizer , cosplayer, or the coffee stall owner

Sony DSLR? I was beside a few guys who are using Sony DSLR, they went there early but gave up their standing position in front of the stage (without showing any indication of coming back), because they went to shoot Cosplayers before the stage performers. So naturally, all the people around start to take over their position. However, when they shot finish, they came back and stand infront and cut into the crowd like they already pay a parking fee for that already. Am I being too sensitive or they lack of understanding that if they give up their standing position, it means give up already, not hogging the space even they are not around?

Thats what i am thinking lol! If got ladder, i will just stand right at the back since i am using 135 already.
hmm cos i am unsure if he knew the organiser so i did not want to make a commotion.

Yes! It that group. Look like they are famous liao LOL. :bsmilie: One of them even elbowed me on my face and my camera HARD when we were shooting beside the stage after the performance. The guy totally offer no apology. If it is accidental, I don't see other photographers elbowing me when I was there all the time, why only him?

Knowing the organizer doesn't mean you have absolute rights to a particular shooting spot, unless you are designated as an official photographer who is paid by the organisers to capture good quality shots of the whole event.

One more thing observed is that they pull such moves together as a group, so that individual shooters would not dare to voice out their displeasure. I'd really frown upon such ugly behavior. :(

a few random notes

1) why did u post a complaint abt someone here -.- its like "stomping" that guy. i hate the ppl who post on stomp for 2 reasons. one they got no balls to stop what they think is wrong themselves. two they post lame everyday occurrences in hope of gathering good comments to increase their ego..

2) the dslr community is growing exponentially with sony and sometimes canon and nikon dslrs going for as low as $500. how do we tell who is a pro and who is a noob running ard acting pro? a few ways to do that: one is the photographer a girl (who loves to camwhore), two what lens is he using (if its an L lens then he's probably serious..), three does he wear a hat/vest (nt very impt), four is he using the standard issue canon eos bag, five does he say things like "eh why the picture so dark ah"... i remember goin to the helix bridge and overheard a crude comment made by a photographer "now so many ppl got dslr ruin the market" yes its true but the manufacturers dun give a ****, more consumers means more $$$

3) that guy is an idiot for trying to multitask, he wont get any good video and his photos will not cover everything and may even be worse in quality.
