“Correct me if I’m wrong. We are discussing  comments and perceptions about photographers by non-photographers/beginning photographers that are based on the type of camera/equipment the photographer is using? Seems a bit pointless. Like trying to explain algebra to a parrot. He’ll repeat what you said, but will not understand it.”

I love that CP 🙂

The biggest discussions and biggest arguments in photography forums usually are about topics that just don’t matter in the long run.  The RAW vs Jpeg, and the cropped vs full frame, and brand of camera, brand of lighting, lenses and on and on…  It’s the final image that counts.  The most acclaimed pictures out there, or should I say most jaw dropping (because some are made by people who are not well known) … well.. no one ever asks was it shot with a full frame or cropped body, or was it converted to jpeg in camera or in software?

Just had this pass by in my feed again today, and thought it sort of pertained to our discussion.  Even if it doesn’t, it’s still funny as hell, and I think you all will like it.  “It’s not about the equipment as much as it is the person behind it” told in a very humorous and kind of different way than usual.
