I notice that some photographers go rather early to reserve a good spot to take photos of a performance. There are alot of people wanting to take photos of the dance performances at Raffles City. Intially, I note that people go there about 45mins to 1hr earlier than the performance to reserve their spot. For instance, Sat. has 3 performances: 1pm, 4pm and 7pm. Last Saturday, I reached Raffles City at around 1.30pm and note that most/all the photographers sat around and waited for the 4pm performance. Through my observation, some of them show up many times to take photos. Of course, I'm not saying there is anything wrong with this, but shouldn't they at least move from the centre or at least move to the 2nd row so that other photographers can have a opportunity to take some better photos. What is your opinion?

there is also the other perfect solution - MONEY.

pay the other photographers $10000, they sure give up their spots :bsmilie:

you can..

#1, pay some money to ask the photographer to take a hike.
#2, make friend with the security guard, ask him to reserved a good spot for you.
#3, can go as early as the shopping mall open door.

if all failed, can try but a 600mm lens and bring a 12 foot ladder.
