Lol. Got in a mini argument on a photography story tonight with a fauxtographer. She was saying “I’m a photographer too! I wanna see the images they paid $xxxx for!” so I called her out that she’s not a professional photographer (serious over-softening using some free editing program, photoshopping people’s faces into fake scenes, etc.) and that she can’t judge another photog’s work until she knows how to use a camera. Oops, got a little heated. Then she comes back and says that she never said she was a professional photographer, that she has gotten countless awards and has been published, and that she is doing it for cheap out of the goodness of hear heart. Why do they ALWAYS justify it by saying they’re not “really a professional?” Ok, so she is charging money and advertising her services, but she concedes she isn’t a professional… smh.
