Blueeyes1128: If I’ve offended you, I apologize. I realize this is just a “hobby” for you, and you seem to have fun doing it, it is serious business for a lot of us. Mostly, the frustration comes from fauxtographers clogging up the system of people who’ve sacrificed a lot to learn and get better. What the good natured hobbyist don’t understand is that potential clients have to sift through this muck in order to get the ones worth their $. And when we see poor examples of shots AND that clients had paid $ for them, it goes against every fiber of our common sense. So the lashing out may be directed more towards clients’ poor taste/instruction/demands/ignorance than your talent. Just something to consider when you market yourself as a photographer.
