Last week we had some fun with an old post that Scott Bourne started. Well, I promised to post your feedback with the additions from so many of you. Here's a whole new list! And a big thanks to Everardo Keeme who shared a link for a website that's guaranteed to make you chuckle! Feel free to add new ones and we'll just keep this thing going! Skip Cohen
You might be a bad photographer:
Michael Miller:...if you shoot a baseball tournament with a kit 18-55mm lens (actually got asked advice on that last night)
Michael Van Auken...if you forget to remove the logo of the photographer who's photograph you stole and claimed it as your own on your web site.
Carey Nash...if you think that selective coloring is awesome and about to take off!
Photogenic...if you think that spot colour actually works in wedding photography and your fb page has LOTs of this type of processed image.
Jared M. Burns...if you are a self-declared "natural light only photographer" because you think direct flash looks un-natural and didn't know a flash can (and should) be moved OFF the camera.
Richard Shoaf...if you incessantly reduce your prices to compete with the "photographers" on Groupon and Craigslist in a race to the bottom.
Michael Novo...if your watermark is prettier than your images.
Angel Pachowski... if you add tons of filters to all your images, because that is the only way to make them look good.
Angel Pachowski...if you have not figured out why the camera won't focus where you want it to. Those pesky boxes keep moving. So you just let the camera choose what to focus on, it has to be right. Right?
Brook Rieman...if you spend all of your time online critiquing other people's photography and never let anyone see your own.
Brian Smith...if your dream is to land a job as photographer for the DMV.
Tom Burtchaell...if you think lens flare is artistic
Bec Wolfe-Thomas...if you convert your photo to B&W because it looks like crap in color.
Rolando Gomez...if your primary camera accepts incoming calls! (Rolando didn't really send this to me, but it's a tweet of his from yesterday that I loved)
Skip Cohen...every time you use your tripod you fully extend the center post, but not the legs. (I had to add one of my own.)
Thanks everybody - if you've got more to add fire them off to my email address, firstname.lastname@example.org
