Apparently there's a trend in Singapore now where girls can easily call themselves freelance models by letting anyone with a DSLR camera photograph them. In lingerie. Or less. Asia One recently wrote a piece about it, and with memorable quotes such as girls love doing it for free and that they trust anyone with a camera, I wondered whether I should laugh or cry.
Just like how anyone who owns a blog can call themselves a blogger, I suppose that anyone who is able to hold a DSLR now is a photographer and anyone who is willing to strip down to their lingerie and allow their photos to be taken is now suddenly a model.
And I thought taking randomly taking pictures of girls in their lingerie is considered perverse. But I guess times have changed. Like how one girl puts it, "Even though I lose a lot of friends but I gain a lot of popularity and like... it's ok."
