Have you ever been made fun of for taking photos?
Today I was photographing these Yucatan Jay's and some guy that was passing by said something like "look at this guy taking photos of stupid birds"

to be honest, no.

its common for women to comment on how "cool" my AT-1 looks
there are a few groups of black dudes around here who shoot street and they usually just use their friends as props to set up cool photos, they're always chill and love to talk about gear.

even with the a540 digicam I get people looking at the LCD screen saying "ohhh that's a good shot!"

Some dudes wanted to fight me because I was taking some shitty photos with my Minolta XD-5 just to see if it worked and they saw me photograph two women.

I got on my bicycle and rode the fuck out of town while they chased me for a bit.

I like to shoot couples and look directly in the dude eyes with a shit eating grin.
No one has ever told me anything lmao

Why do people stop before you camera so you take a shot and nod their head? That's awkward.
>>
I've been made fun of taking pics by coworkers and my boss most of the times, it happens that I bring my camera at work sometimes so I can go shoot after work and they keep mockingly telling me that I'm going to be a pro or asking me when I'm going to open my own studio...

I just smile and keep doing the minimum, using work time to plan my photography project
>>
>>4103642
No but people often ask me to take a photo of them.
>>
>>4103642

That’s exactly what I’m thinking in my head walking around the shopping mall looking at all the idiots buying all their mindless shit.
Nothing wrong with shooting birds but it is slightly cringe if you are just doing it around your neighbourhood instead of going to a nature area.

No, I live in a tropical town in Mexico called tulum

Anon, they're rooting for you, why are you always so paranoid
>>

Oh. That's just because Mexico is a macho shithole. Fuck that country.

This shot got me into some trouble yesterday. I was walking around the cemetery taking the occasional photo when some dude on the hill nearby yells something and then sprints towards me. I put on my friendliest I'm just a dumb photographer, I don't know any better face, but the guy starts immediately ranting at me in Arabic and when it's clear I don't understand a word pulls out his phone calls somebody and tells me to wait. I turn around, decide it's time to get out of there, and he grabs me by the shoulder and keeps telling me to wait.

At that point I told him that if he touches me again I'm going to call the cops. (Felt rather sheepish about it) Still, he followed me all the way out of the cemetery.

Was the shot worth it? You decide.

crop to square or 6x7 ratio, increase exposure and contrast, then yea maybe it's worth something.

it could be worse anon.

you could have taken a photo for someone you care about,
and really taken your time with it,
and tried your best to make it for their aesthetic,
and chose a subject that they have personally cared for,
and printed it out,
and written a pun about the photo on the back so they could smile.

and then there's no smile.
there's no nothing because they wanted you to give them something else that you aren't able to give.
and maybe there are some more but now you just have to throw them out because now you know they shouldn't exist

I guess. I did give a triptych which took me 3 months to capture to a friend once and he doesn't have it up anywhere. I've literally never seen it again, it's not on display in any room in his house.
>>
>>4104509
well anon I've shown that same triptych to some of my friends over the years and always received a great response, so I guess you've improved our friendships a little bit. thank you
>>
>>4104521

>>
>>4104537
I first saved a copy of that bat triptych from this board years ago
