CRAZY PHOTOGRAPHER by blessedchild CRAZY PHOTOGRAPHER by blessedchild
To clarify : when out with my camera shooting (mostly in the small town that I live in), I often get the weird looks from passers-by when I take out my camera. Expressions like "What the..." are not uncommon. You know...

I sometimes thought of making this into a t-shirt so that it would meet the eye. But I thought, heck I'll make it into a stamp at least. Perhaps someone can identify with this as well. Cheers!

This is basically just a concept, might improve this later.

EDIT: You can find a t-shirt of this here [link]

This is so true! I always have my point and shoot on me to catch moments, but I get the weirdest looks when I use it at random. One time I spent ten minutes under a flag pole trying to get the best angle for the shot I wanted and waiting for the wind to blow the flags in the right direction. When I was done I looked around and a bunch of people were just staring at me like I was the craziest person around. Gah. ^^;

Yeah! "O.o what the hell..!" but when you use a cellphone to take a photo no one notice. x)
I'll use it ;D

So true. Once i was trying to get a shot and some people just stared the whole time i was trying to get it. I think they left after i tried lying on the ground in the middle of the sidewalk

i'm always doing crazy stuff to get the best pictures [i.e. hanging out the window going 55, standing on the edge of a steep hill to get pictures from the top, other dangerous things, etc] and my friends are like...woman, you're going to DIE. are you CRAZY? D:

they think i'm taking pictures of nothing. ;-;

Ah man, I remember how comfortable doing street in Finland, Russia, Hungary and Sweden. I was entirely alienated, unable to speak the language and in a big city.

Now, even though there are no second looks, I can feel them and I'm completely unable to take street photos. Damn you, Small-Town New Zealand :shakefist:

I'm not crazy. I just have a heightened perception as to what COULD be :XD:
no-day-but-today41 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
WOOT! :w00t!:
LostInside31 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2008
I know that feeling and I hate it!
CassidyVinci Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2008
Great idea. I know that feeling when people look at you this strange way. Even my mum doesn't understand how I can take photos of clouds, buildings etc.

But I'm crazy because of other reasons, so I must live with that :D.
ninereeds-DA Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2008
