Put your damn phones and cameras down...

why can't we just watch a band/dj or anything anymore without having umpteen photographer hopefuls and phones blocking the stage and my enjoyment. at least at a metal show there's an excuse to knock the prick over.

if your press... great. if you got a lovely canon from mummy and daddy, start with nature photos and get out of the way. if you stick up your vga quality phone you deserve to have it put in a very uncomfortable place. even with a better phone the pic will still look like crap and I defy a person to remember what the pic is two years later. as for video quality the daft punk at cochella speak for themselves......

and thanks for listening.... and let the timeline or newbie comments begin since its my first thread.

How about because people like to capture moments that they they enjoy. Is that sufficient?

how can you timeline a complaint? Anyways I kinda agree but you can't really tell people not to photograph an artist they like enough to go see live, especially when the venue allows it. That being said..STFU N00b!

I think we should just ban cameras! Like, all together! A "photographer's" professions will now involve going to people's homes, removing cameras, film and accessories and burning them on the front lawn at 451 degrees Fahrenheit.

maybe they capture the moments they won't remember on the night due to varied circumstances.

and thanks caz, i am no longer an virgin unbashed noob, THE CHERRY HAS BEEN BROKEN, HOORAY!

You're right, the only reason people take photos at entertainment venues is to compensate for the memory that “circumstances” hinder. The cameras are simply a symptom! I say we change this thread title appropriately to Get rid of circumstances, they do us no good!.

There are more pictures of me doing things that would prevent a political career than baby pictures. Personally I don't so much mind people with cameras, I get annoyed by people with cameras acting like they are allowed to direct the events to create the best picture. One thing to get a crowd shot with everyone in it, but I hate having to stop conversations every 10 minutes to stand an pose while I'm drinking and partying.

fucking photographers.
why don't people paint anymore.
I'd personally like to see court room style sketches of all parties I go to.

unless they're sticking their camera in your ears, I don't see how it's going to effect your enjoying the music.

who the hell wants to look at the dj anyway....fuck dj's, they're scum...I say we put them all behind an iron curtain, and show a nice silent movie while they perform for us.

as for bands, what a bunch of spastic tards....I only need to see you flail around for a second or two before I, ugh, think i got it.

I leave the photography of any artistic merit to nerds like otis and sunny. i like my own line of drunk photos cutting off peoples foreheads or pics of my own feet.

SO now everyone with a camera is a "photogrpaher hopeful"? The future of photography is really gonna be shit if that's the case

we all know that you are not a true photographer until you own:

iPod, iBook, Horn rimmed glasses, big fucking fluffy scarf

and you personally know 3 out of the 7 girls at starbucks because you are a regular fixture there.

Also, you only do weddings for the money until you get a job in your real area of interest, something like natural geographic

Maybe they are like those people who hideously highlight highlight vast quantities of text in books they are suppossed to read in hopes of maybe reading it some point in the future...
