Why there are so many unhappy photographers these days?

I'm surprised to read so many complaints posted by the citizens of this happy island e.g.

1. Not happy people talking about cameras and lenses lah.

2. Not happy people looking at their LCD while they take photos lah.

3. Not happy seeing people listing their equipments in their signatures lah.

4. Not happy about buyers lah.

5. Not happy about sellers lah.

6. Not happy about shops not allowing photography lah.

7. Not happy about XMMs lah.

8. Not happy about people using full auto mode lah.

This is not going to put our beautiful country into of the list of "Most Happy Countries to Live in" the way we are going. :)

If photography can cause so much tress maybe we should take up a more relaxing hobby e.g. fishing, catching spiders or bird watching (Orchard Road type). :bsmilie:

I think it has something to do with the festive season. Being as commercialized as it is nowadays, the Christmas/New Year season is very stressful de. Must buy presents for so and so, office got gift exchange, everybody on leave and no one to share workload with, longer working hours for retail / F&B workers and so on.

That is the way it is. Wait till late Feb, we'll be back to normal.

the only way to cure the unhappiness is to buy buy buy? :devil:

If photography is so unhappy, why not just sell away your equipments and give up this hobby? :sticktong

Provided they sell at a reasonsable price. some bros are selling their used equipment at a price higher than a brand new piece. :sweat:

:) Photography as in extrinsic, Photography as in intrinsic.
There are more extrinsic people around since DSLR is cheaper, they have nothing to do but since DSLR price is reasonable. They buy and force to do photography because of money they invested. This people will be unhappy definitely.

Intrinsic people, do photography as a passion, hobbies. This people tend to be more friendly and tolerance as this is something they do they like. Not push by external factors come from within.

Need more intrinsic users, extrinsic users creates competitiveness and therefore create unhappiness.

My humble opinions. No good or bad haha!

You can make your presence felt by posting in Kopitiam regularly.

Then you'll be made a Senior Member by popular demand. :bsmilie:
