Since when does having a digital SLR entitle you to push your way into a dressing room or stage or DJ booth? (If you feel like you're being an asshole doing it and you feel you don't belong - it's because you are being an asshole doing it and you don't belong.)
Sure, I take lots of pictures when I'm hanging out - of people I know. It's already annoying enough when you have a huge flash of light violating your pupils by someone you don't know, and then to have the whole party of people you're with bummed out by you and your bulging lens. Not everyone who goes out wants to be on your website. I don't care how they do it in Williamsburg, Hollywood.
At least the little Russian girls who were shooting street fashion at ATP NY were asking if it was okay. Which was SO nice - and took only a second.
Thanks Bronques and Cobrasnizzle for setting this trend - I loved it when it was just you - but now every kid can ask for one "fancy camera" for Christmas and create a crappy website titled something about getting popular as if to entice you to actually *want* to be on it. Where did the art in this art form go?
