Hi. Long time...
« on: December 28, 2015, 03:42:51 PM »
Hi everyone tiphat

What have I gained from this forum?

There is one sentence that has been said in various occasions across this board:

What you can't do at home, you can't do elsewhere...

Ammm... What I did and do ever since at home, I can't do elsewhere...

BTW, I miss these emoticons. Wish they were on Facebook... Also miss the humor and wit here that people lack on Facebook. But through Facebook I've found groups and meet people in real life, and that makes the difference.

You are a real life man. That make you different from many others.

Ammm... What I did and do ever since at home, I can't do elsewhere...

Tell me more...
I am holding my breath.

I hate to give definitions. Let me think....
It's a person who prefers his virtual life over real, and never mix them together.

Did you get married?

Or doesn't have real life, so virtual is sort of substitute.

To your question, nothing new in the field of relationship, girlfriend, or marriage. It's about getting a life, rather than live in virtual fantasies. Going out to activities and courses and meet with real people (ok, you here are very real, but we don't meet in person. Let alone in most cases we don't know how others on this board look like).

It's about photography, which is my hobby. I'm going to activities with groups that do photography. That includes in many cases photographing models (some of which are quite hot).
Shooting models became sort of entertainment, which naturally replaced the interest in dating sites and the search for women abroad. No more looking at pics on Adate. Now I make the pics. Meet real models in the workshops and courses, so that made me to abandon the online staff that I did before.
Not that it has a potential of happy ending with some model, but hey, I meet them here, close to home. No need to get on a plane for that... and...I picked some really hot girls who were cashiers in the local super market, asking them to model for me, and we did some photo sessions. No other way would I do it if not my passion to cameras and photography.

Hey, Photography is both part of my work as well as my hobby. I do shoot models but I also do weddings and other events. I have moved into video as well as I seem to be able to find more work as a videographer.

Hi. Shooting events is the most commonplace where photographers make some money. As for me, I don't like being in events where I don't know the participants. Also don't like the loud music.
I have special taste for shooting models on location and studio. I like to use flashes off camera as a part of lighting systems.
As for video, I have quite a lot of footage. Just press the video button when I see some interesting scene. But stitching the pieces together and cut and edit and insert transitions I didn't have a clue how to do that until recently. I discovered you can edit video in Photoshop and tried some editing. Also have started to scratch the surface of editing in Adobe Premiere pro.

But techniques aside. Most importantly is that this hobby opens me the door to meet new people and socializing around shooting activities, which otherwise wouldn't happen.
And if shooting models made me forget about women overseas, even though it doesn't lead to relationship (so the previous craziness, so no difference), it may worth it.

Attracting women is something that has to do with personality. In these activities I've met with a wonderful guy who works in the profession (42 yo, divorced + 2 children). We became friends. I've noticed that women love him. It seems he doesn't have problem to get to intimacy, if he just wants to.
I talked with him about it. What he told me: "God gives nuts to somebody who doesn't like nuts. I'm not the type of one night stands. I look for something else (in relationship) and don't find it. Leave it. I'm complicated... Bottom line, we are both alone without meaningful relationships"...
