    The gym I lift at has its share of idiots doing idiotic things with free
    weights and machines, and I'd like to be able to photograph the more
    ridiculous "lifters". Of course my 20D or even my camera phone would be
    too conspicuous. Any suggestions?

    Because I want to post the pics on a strength and power web forum.

    For what? Ridicule?

    Do we really need another place where people ridicule those who have offended
    them? Whatever happened to tolerance?

    No, for our amusement. I'm not planning to ridicule weak lifters who are
    training right and observe gym etiquette. Tolerance?! If you are a
    serious lifter nothing can be more annoying than to have the squat rack
    perennially occupied by chicken-legged punks doing bicep curls. Or to
    hear idiots yelling and grunting when lifting puny weights. Or the
    cretins leaving the barbells loaded with plates for others to take off.

    Yeah. I have a suggestion.

    Go get a life and stop invading people's privacy. It's people like you that
    give us photographers a bad reputation.

    PS:

    Ever hear of something called a Model Release?

    I hope you have good Errors and Omissions insurance, because you're likely
    to end up broke after one of your victims sues your butt.

    And who are YOU to go around ridiculing people over the Internet?

    Privacy in a public gym?

    "Victims?!" Now they're "victims" because they have their pictures taken
    while in public? And you can be sure that I will express my deepest
    admiration for their feats of strength when posting their gym pics. If
    others will laugh at them it is not my fault.

    Chain gyms suck. Lots of lifters at our gym videotape their better lifts.

  16. I assume it's because he comes across as a Neanderthal. Instead of doing the
    decent thing of asking the staff to educate people on the correct use or
    ettiquette or indeed showing them himself, he'd rather try and humiliate
    them.

    Typical case of the 'strong' picking on the weak. Nice one George, just what
    the world needs more of!

    If your gym allows people to lift in ways that are unsafe, you should
    find another gym.

  19. Hide behind mone of the weightlifters and take the pictures thru his ears.
    His head will be empty, but you might get a bit of vignetting.

    Inside a gym is not "in public" unless you're shooting through the
    windows from outside and off the property.
