Ever have some clueless photog walk right into your shot? It can be frustrating, you frame a shot and then some clown walks right in the way?

How do you deal with it?

Quite a few years ago my dad was taking a shot like that and some guy walked right in the view, so he basically shouted and told him what he thought. Only turned out to be one of my school teachers  silly 


Obviously missing something....

Ask him if he minds moving until I'm done with the shot I was setting up. If he minds, hit him with the cattle prod.

Step 1) Sharp tongue and a slashing comment.

Step 3) Damn.... my monopod was extended when I turned around..... heheheheehehe. And you thought the 3 Stooges were the only slapstick in the neighbourhood!

Hey royal
I can do better then that
We have some photogs here in Sydney that know the crowd but only talk to a select few they walk right past some of us and never utter a word.
That i think is the ultimate of rudeness to fellow photogs .

.... change my shot and move into his image for a close up!

Or, more often, I just say something along the lines of "oh, don't mind me"! It usually provokes a response like "oh, really sorry, didn't see you there". To which I normally think "blind b*******d"!!!

Never had any problems with other photographers. At Manchester they've always been friendly, even if its just a nod to say hello.

Royal, a swift kick in the rear would sort that fella out no worries  Cool

Depends on the situation really. If the guy could blatantly see you were taking a shot and just walked into your line of fire then it would annoy me but I doubt I'd say anything to their face. IMO it's best to keep things chilled and not go mouthing off at people even if they did something to annoy me.
If you were on a mound or whatever and someone moved to pick up their bag or something like than and got in your shot by accident then no worries. Anyone can do it by mistake.

It's a hobby for the vast majority of us however seriously you take it.
