Based on these pictures, I reckon I should organise a workshop called “Travelling Camwhore – Have No Fear About Not Having Nice Shots of Yourself When You Travel Alone” Please look thru’ description of each picture for tips on how to camwhore like someone else is shooting you 😀
Info: All images are from September 2010 and they were shot in Siem Reap by me, of me using the Canon 5DMKII’s self timer and the 50mm f1.4 or 24mm f1.4 lens. Camera was placed on available surfaces (on top of a clean cloth of course!), no tripod. And yes, I might just be Kuala Lumpur’s most vain photographer.
Tip # 1: Do not camwhore too far away from the camera, especially when all you’ve got is a 10-second timer and no remote.
I learnt this after running back and forth no less than 3 times and all I got was this butt shot -_-”
Tip #6: Yes, tons of other tourists were walking on this main street toward/from the temples. But HAVE NO SHAME.
Shame is the only thing separating you from being a normal tourist and an ULTIMATE CAMWHORING tourist :p
And that concludes this edition of “Ultimate Camwhoring”. Will there be more to come? Well that remains to be seen on how much further I can go as a ‘camwhorer’ 😉 Happy Sunday friends!
Edit: This blogpost was just for laughs and I don’t exactly recommend placing your camera and walking away from it in public places. In the cases of the above shots, these pics were taken within the Angkor Archaeological Park, at areas where there weren’t that many tourists, after ‘surveying’ the venue for possibility of snatch theft and camwhoring was only done when I was 95% sure that my babies weren’t gonna be snatched away.
THIS METHOD OF CAMWHORING IS TO BE DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK ;p
