I spent all of Coachella in crowded photo pits, dodging lenses and extra camera bodies swinging from other photographers’ shoulders. But for the most part, everyone was professional and polite. Then I come back to San Diego, to a show at the Casbah (a crowded one, but still), and have to deal with this:
I already have issues with people taking shots without looking through their viewfinder. But when that shot gets directly in the way of a shot I am obviously taking, I get pissed. I hope photo karma comes back to bite you in the ass. Or maybe, next time that elbow I threw in your general direction won’t be so subtle.
Manners, people – if you disregard them, I can too.
