We use them as express/6-8ppl lifts. It's nice to have the option to be able to change your gear out if needed in an enclosed area. Or if you have 4 kids and need to make sure they're jackets are on.

I rarely use them because they have longer lines though

I think OP is just scaring people away from picking up photography. There are plenty of kitlenses which are fairly decent. They don't stand out in anything particular, but are fine as an entry-level all-round lens. Start with the kitlens and work your way onward from there. Sure your photos will look better when taken with a Leica lens, but you gotta start somewhere.

Edit: typo

Dammit you caught me. I was banking on being the only photographer left after this post. Guess I gotta go learn to f/stop now :(

A good rule of thumb; buy a cheep body, but expensive lenses.

aethonfox 2 points

Agreed. I'd say the lens should cost at least as much as the body.

Here is how it looks IRL -

Id hate to pay for cruise through there, only to see that. I feel that the profile shot gif up top made it look more dramatic.

Tbh, we weren't expecting much but got up way early to be awake when our ship first got in line anyway.

It was easily one of the coolest things I've seen in my life. No question.

It's Israel, that's normal for parking.

They aren't blocking anyone who is parked correctly. This is barely Israeli parking.

I only say this because I've seen it happen.. Don't stop on the highway! I saw a California van freak out before a hill and slow down. They couldn't get back up to speed on the incline. They were stuck because they lost all momentum.

Don't speed, but 5mph is also dangerous!

Good luck

Edit: once you're past Glenwood springs you'll be ok. In my experience

So, this whole thing started in 2010, when I was about sixteen years old...

Back then I lived in a small town where everybody knew each other. One day, a friend of mine told me about a new opened store (a thrift store, where you could buy used DVDs, CDs, LPs, Games and so on...). I was curious, because we hadn't had such a store in our town, so I went there to see what they have to sell. When I first arrived there, I saw the shopowner behind the counter (It was only him working there all the time). He seemed very friendly and he had a lot of cool stuff there. I was really impressed because I could find some rare DVDs for a fair price. After some time, this store became my favourite place to buy stuff. I could have fossicked in this cozy store for hours, talking with the shopowner about movies, games and so on. But one tuesday morning in November, School was cancelled for some reason, I went to this store to see if he got new stuff. I can remember that I haven't been there for two weeks or so and therefore I hoped to find some new treasures. I went in and was greeted by the shopowner with a polite, yet restrained smile. There were no other customers besides me. I went to the DVDs to see what he has got. After five minutes, he came to me and asked: "What are you doing?" Me: "Oh, I am browsing through the shelves." Him: "Are you looking for a specific movie?" Me: "No, just browsing, maybe I'll find something interesting" Him: (he got louder and very unfriendly) "See, I don't know what your fuking problem is." (gesture and facial expressions became really aggressive) "You come in here, walk through my shelves and making a HUGE (his voice became really loud, and he also approached closer to me) mess and I have to clear up this fking sht" - although it's not true. I am very careful and always arrange the DVD cases how they were before. I even clean my fingers before touching them, so the plastic cover doesn't get greasy) Me: (pretty shocked and confused) "Umm... No, I..." Him: (shouting as loud as possible and talking very fast) "YOU ALWAYS MAKE SUCH A HUGE MESS!!! WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM??? ARE YOU JUST TOO STUPID? RETARDED PIECE OF SHT GET OUT OF MY STORE RIGHT NOW!!!" I couldn't move, because I was so shocked. Him: (He approached further to my right ear, coming very close and shouting very loud) "GET OUT!!! (I started to move) GET OUT!!! OR I WILL FUKING KILL YOU!!! AND NEVER COME BACK HERE! SPOILED BRAT YOU COULD" - I finally shut the door and was outside. This incident really left me speechless and I nearly started to cry. I was thrown out of many stores for no apparent reason, but this was by far the worst experience I ever had. I told everyone I knew this story but most people did not believe me, saying the story was just made up.

I don't know why this happened to me. I didn't do anything wrong. I never made a mess in this guys store, nor did I behave inappropriately in any way.

Ummmm.... I'm to go ahead and say if you keep getting thrown out it might be you. I don't get kicked out of stores, nor does anyone I know.

What's the best way to approach pro's as an assistant/2nd shooter? I love shooting all sorts of styles and have a large portfolio. I've shot for local magazines, weddings, restaurants, small businesses, etc. I love it all, but could never pick one and stay with it.

I'm currently going back to school and need a PT job. Much rather offer my time to someone working full time and learn from them. I also figure with spring coming I could hop in on some weddings. Do I just start DMing on Instagram and start asking who needs help? Can I become like a "lens for hire" for multiple other photographers and make a living off that (while in school PT)?

It’s hard. Many pros are swamped with such requests. They can pick and choose from a pile of applicants with established portfolios - people offering to work for free for the experience. And they don’t want to invite somebody unknown into their business who might injure their reputation or try to steal their clients. Plus it sounds like you’d only be available when you’re not studying, which might not suit a business when they want consistency.

But if your images absolutely stand apart then a business is more likely to approach you. Plus if you’re super charming, punctual, friendly, good looking, speak a foreign language, can fly a drone, shoot video, have great-post processing and data wrangling skills... basically if you offer more stuff that the business benefits from, then you get to choose who to work for.
