You Are Not A Photographer July 12, 2011 Just got sent this site by a friend of mine proving that just because you have a camera, does not mean you are a photographer. « The Surreal Drawings Of Jonath… T-shirts trick German neo-Nazi… » Journal Comments Naf4d about 5 years ago …I think the same can be said for having a computer with some ‘fun’ fonts loaded onto it from a shitty free font site! ;-) Rossman72 about 5 years ago Oh yes. There should be a site “You Are Not A Designer”. Just having an illegal copy of Photoshop doesn’t mean you’re a Graphic Designer…. Peter Hill about 5 years ago Ouch! Rossman72 about 5 years ago Some of the photos really hurt… twistwashere about 5 years ago who declared the camera the means towards art, all a camera does is trap a scene, I was thinking about this tonight , before I excitedly came across Ross’s photograph ,( long time no see ) I still look at my badly out come photos , and everytime I will see beyond, with out thinking of any issues , and first off , because I am a mother and grandmother , I see the memories , because of that photo I can still , see , feel and smell what the camera was capturing , I have seen as well as some suberb art on bigbubble , but some absoulute crap , but it is not my place to judge, and I am always interested when delving into someones portfolio on which bits get commented on , not everything is to my taste , and laterly I have been coming across a few that appear to not reply t9 any comments at all , which began thought processing of mine , it appears that I am slowly getting to each response , but I have noticed I will possible have one photograph that I am not able to respond to peoples kind comments at all , and I am still pondering upon this . So I believe that this is a little harsh Rossman72 about 5 years ago The point of this site is that these people are charging money for their photos. They’re putting themselves forward as professionals and taking actual money for their efforts which are obviously substandard. BYRON about 5 years ago hahahahahaha! and those image were from “photographic businesses”! laughed so hard I think I pee’d a little bit! I found a website from a wedding photog in … somewhere midwest USA… they were so baaaaa-aa-a-a-a-ha-ha-haaaaaaad that I reckon the photog is still trying to work out where you put the film in a DSLR! Look I can understand and accept ordinary photography – not everyone has the skills/knowledge/talent. But geez louise on a pgo stick… if you are gonna set up a business like the people from that website – you should at least be able to take good pictures and do decent post-production work. OMFG I think I have a stitch from laughing so hard urrrrrgh, I think my spleen just came out my mouth! twistwashere about 5 years ago ok , I get the jist , well maybe there are substandard people who don’t have a discerning nature , I don’t know, I probably freaked cause I thought yous all where pissing on those photos , my bad twistwashere about 5 years ago but it is still lovely to see your avatar, it always makes me smile Peter Hill about 5 years ago Hurt is indeed the operative word. It’s the physical manifestation of really extreme Cringe. And hurt you they do! But with that effect on my senses I then went and looked the Recent pages on RB …… Oh the Journal I could do! Unfortunately I’d get suspended on the spot.
