    I want to take my DSLR out tonight to the hookah bar/dinner to shoot some photos while out with my friends. I want to get pics of my friends but also maybe some neat hookah smoke shots and just some general around-the-town shots.

    Has anyone done this? Is this awkward? What's the best way to go about doing this? Is it weird showing up to smoke a hookah with a camera bag? Do you have to deal with the restaurant first to make sure it's okay?

    I hate bringing a lot of attention to myself and I'm worried I'm asking for it if I bring a DSLR out with me....

    P.S. I'm not going to any crowded bars or anywhere the camera would be likely to get damaged

    If you're just shooting your friends I don't see why they would care, just don't bring out the white Ls and draw attention to yourself or shoot flash that messes with other people's experience.

    get an unobstrusive bag like a crumpler and don't give a shit?


    i've done it.


    when the bar gets crowded and you have a big flash and lens, chicks come up and want their pics taken. :roflwtf:

    i got their email and told them to look up "hollywood blah blah blah.com"

    :mamoru:

    i deleted a lot of them, but i have no idea who these people are
    :rofl:

    cool. i'm gonna mostly be using my 50mm f/1.8 so I won't be using flash much.

    honestly, i'm mostly interested in smoke pictures and more artsy and abstract shots than I am people shots (unless they're smoking the hookah or something else cool)

    thanks for the tips/advice/stories/hotness
