Have you even been guilty of FAP?

Don't you just love the way the media choose headlines to incite and elicit emotions and predispositions.
And of course it doesn't stop at the headline, you have to read an article fully to hope to extract any form of balanced view of what it's all about.

That said, I'll leave you to it. I'm sure most here might relate for having shown a little less discretion for the privacy concerns of certain other beings at some time -- we probably need a name and shame list.

Also some of the Comments to it are worth a read, esp. the first one.

Obligatory Confession:
Once in my younger days, armed with full 24 roll in the SLR at a zoo, I took a few snaps of a very stately and amorous Lion, in the process of unleashing the full extent of his abundant libido on Ms Lioness in full and uninhibited view of the day's human visitors. Innocent camera obsessed me thought little of it at the time, as young or obsessed people tend to do.

Now to this day I'm bloody positive all the settings and exposure were just right, like all SLR technophiles I was acutely attentive of those matters, and, film + processing wasn't cheap back then as some of you know well. But alas, on receiving the prints back from the lab 2 weeks later, I was most disappointed that those select few were missing!?

Thank diety for Digital I say! No more of that big-brother censorship rubbish by amateurs.
Or, should there be, perhaps...?

Have a nice day.

Oh, I thought this was about Fine-Arts Photography, the other FAP -- y'know, boring calendar-quality photos. Whew. I don't do that stuff. No, I'll just go back to FAPping over images of sexy lenses. Especially those naked German and Russian ones, all that bare aluminium, those sculpted curves, ooh ooh... Yeah, presets or GTFO.
