What sentence annoys you most from non photographers?

Post by dylanburgess » Fri Oct 09, 2020 12:25 pm

Just a bit of fun, like many of you I often get asked something when out with a camera or when some see my photos. I do try to be polite and often bite my tongue. So here are a couple I can think of, please share some of yours:

"WOW, you must have a great camera to get that photo"

"WOW you are so lucky to get that photo" often after sitting freezing my bits off outdoors for hours on end, yeah I'm really lucky ;)

So please leave some of your best :lol:

:lol: I know, right. Yes, those two statements you listed are irritating. Or this, "why don't you take photos like so-and-so", which I say, "because I have my own style". :shock: But you're right, you just have to be polite because non photographers just don't know what all is involved. That's the same thing with my candles and wax products. Anybody can make a candle but it takes skill and experience to make a safe, high quality candle. A lot of people don't realize that either.

Wow, where do you start...? The one that most hear often I (and I am sure most photographers would agree...) ” What is the best camera to use or buy..?”

Or....

”How much would charge to photograph my daughter's/son’s wedding?” When I tell them that I do not shoot weddings, their eyes glaze over and sometimes they feel that they have been insulted by my response. They behave (usually, the Mother) as if I were being offered the opportunity to shoot the wedding of the century.

There are a ton more but I sure that many of us had heard them all.

The classic:"wow you must have nice camera"
"you should photograph -weddings... people in general-" (i don't like photographing people)
"you can take true HDR only with -Nikon Z camera-" I do not get this at all

urgh... headache :mrgreen:
