imfallen_angel: Dragonflew: Remember upthread when I said that there is no smug like pro photographer smug? I was referring to your comments. Add photography to the long list of subjects you are a total farking asshole about.

awwww... I'm so glad to have pissed in your cereal then.

What's funny is that what my post(s) are about, is the fact that many wannabees will be asshats that claim to be photographers while being clueless, as they take nothing but snapshots (letting the automated settings of the camera do everything) and think that makes them skilled.

So it's very ironic that you're just too stupid to understand that.

My points are that if you are so farking clueless about photography, but still pursue a career in it, act like an asshat about it, you shouldn't bother.

And the double irony is that you wine :

"There is no smug like professional photographer smug. Any other type of artist will help and encourage people getting into the field. All I have ever seen from professional photographers is insults fired at anyone who buys a camera worth less than $2K, and snide comments without even seeing the photos. When I meet a photographer, I don't even mention I have a camera, because I don't want them immediately turning into an asshole. "

then you call me a troll... when I state that the camera only matters to an extent, and that someone with skills, will simply have skills and take great pictures

Maybe stating that I used to teach photography (and darkroom) in my younger days, and still take my time to help newcomers into the "art" of photography, regardless of their equipment might help you get my point(s), which are: get a clue, look around, get to know your camera, the environment, go with your guts, have fun, and do more than just snapshots, learn to use the manual setting, and understand why you need to know how to use it.  And: practice, practice and more practice until it's second nature to not even have to wonder about your aperture, speed, ISO, etc... you just se ...


Good god dude back of the Ritalin or something, you've gone full-douche.

imfallen_angel: meh... someone that knows how to take pictures would observe to whole area, and visualize every possible angle, the approach, the lighting, the colours, the white balance, before the camera is even up.

But everyone's a photographer now...or so they think.
