hi CSers,

pls share your jokes or embarrassing moments related to photography... i am sure each will have some when we first started...


mine here:

i do know about shutter speed even when i was in sec schools... and i know it can freeze a drop of water... i like those effects...

so when i finally decide to buy a dslr.. i go around trying.. and of course the first thing i wanna try is the fastest shutter speed...

so i went to challenger in jurong... i took a nikon d5000... i asked the sales guy to teach me how to set shutter speed.. so i set to 1/4000s... snap... ops!!! why all black one!!! oh ****!!!!!! d5000 cannot do 1/4000 s.... sian liao... there goes my cheap camera... very disappointed!!!

then i went away... after some days, i go to another shop and try D90.... again 1/4000... snap! wa.. better this time.. at least not so dark...

oh.. does that mean i must buy D90? .......................

............

my room-mate during one of the photo trips smeared a very very light layer of tooth paste on my UV filter while I was sleeping...... next morning waited for 3-4 hrs with no luck for the 'condensation' to clear

another time on a different trip ..... some joker rubbed chinese medicated oil on my viewfinder window eye-cup

I was photographing a temple site in China after the rain. Sun came out and secene was a little misty. Every pic I took didn't look right and start fiddling with compensation. Finally I realise that there's condensation on the glass after may attempts. Felt very stupid, head knowledge but zero practical experience:bsmilie:

Damn embarassing esp when i'm taking a group shot for an event. :sweat:

Yeah especially when the group ur shooting is laughing at u cuz they know ur lens cap is on...

I had an embarrassing moment while shooting a group shot at an event, my lens just wont lock focus no matter how many times I press shutter, even with AF assist. Stood there for a full 10 seconds doing that, damn paiseh. End up MF then show them OOF image cuz they wanted to look at it... :eek:

Was at a place (oversea travel) where no photography was allowed. And so i proceed to compose my shot with the security coming to stop me from taking photo. The security told me to stop photograph but i fired a few shots before acting surprised to see them and asked what they want with a smile.

when i picked up rangefinders for fun, i would ask a bunch of my friends to pose, proceed to focus and take the shot.. with the lens cap on =P

then, when i got the soft release button for my nikkormat, it was really nice to use. but everytime i leaned the body on my body to change lens i d trip the shutter.. too sensitive liao. haha.

that day, took my FA and 20-35 out to shoot. saw this pretty nice shot of an office building. but to get the perspective i want had to squat... then half bend to the ground, then proned. finally, after shooting, i got up only to realise the security guard standing about ten meters behind me.. v paiseh to walked away faster. haha.
