Photog Forum

Copied this from the canon forums. This is part of a thread that asks what are your replies to peoples questions/comments when your out shooting.

i took about 10 steps into a women's professional billiards tournament a few months back. i was almost tackled by a guy.

him: WHO do you shoot for?! WHY are you here?!

me: myself. i like pool.

him: oh. ...<long pause>... can i check your camera out? is that the new 30d?

me: uh...yeah it is...sure.

he turned out to be the event photographer. gave me a bunch of great tips on shooting in low light. my gear cost probably 2x his. my skills were about 0.1 of his. good times.

I was visiting a local zoo. I had the 5D plus grip with the 100-400 on, fully extended.

A couple with 2 kids came to the exhibit I was photographing.

She says to him: "Darling, THAT'S a nice camers" as she points to my camera.

He looks over and replies to her: "He probably doesn't have a wife, 2 kids, a mortgage and a houseful of hungry pets."

I laughed. They laughed. We chatted. We wandered off and each time we saw each other at different exhibits we smiled and said hi.
