Thanks CC 🙂

I really DO think it will make an impression

“Firstly, I don’t truly care about what fauxs think. I’m not trying to be elitist. It’s just that no matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to wake up someone who is pretending to be asleep. And that goes for those who think the output of these people is just amazing. So if the faux thinks I’m overpriced and those beneath them are wrongly shooting for free, I don’t care”.

In the sense that it doesn’t interfere with what I do, or affect me in anyway, I don’t care either. But, in the “I can’t look away” during a car wreck kind of way, I’m just so very compelled to be interested in what they do, think, and say. I can’t help it. It’s almost a reflex or instinct that I don’t have control over. “I must study this faux phenomenon”. hehehe

“Elitist” To me you don’t sound elitist at all… but I’m beginning to think that being an elitist isn’t such a bad thing to be after all. Most of my photographer friends are (or more accurately, have been accused of being) elitists, including myself (which is strange considering I’ve never stepped up to play the game of going pro). So if someone ever accuses you of elitism from here on out, just take it as a compliment. It just means you give a shit about your photography, and photography in general, and that’s A OK in my book.
