it's the same with the deviant art thread, though it is fun to see the occasional anomaly like a hundred thousand pictures with apparent lack of improvement. Could just be that they're touristy and upload everything for sake of family
I read a quote a while back, and it always reminds me of this thread. "If I see the beauty in things no one else does, am I artistic, or does it just mean I have bad taste?"
I guess I was also surprised with all the blurry pictures taken in a moving car with a 7D, which I'd associate a skilled photographer would use, yet there were blurry car pictures among the 110 000 other pictures
oh man, the people I know
Can I be 'that guy' for 2 minutes or something while im still incredibly happy about my new lens?
there's nothing wrong with being proud about a new lens
you become a "that guy" when you pretend as if getting a new lens makes you a good photographer
Wish I was as cool as these guys.
I don't know what AMA means.
Ah, I see.
Lol trading a 5d for a d90
this is the only photo gear designed for women
may not be "that guy" material but i know a few guys with pretty decent kit, Canon 550D level stuff (i know its not that high level but for a 17 year old thats decent kit), and have absolutely no respect for it. Throwing camera bags about, dropping it and laughing, letting their tripod topple over down a muddy hill to name a few things.
also, the latest piece of each of their work:
people are just abusing those sites now, for instance, Penny Arcade is doing a big kickstarter.... That's like breaking the number one rule, ruins the whole point of it.
ITT: Everyone thinks they're "that guy".
SC's at a convention called exxxotica right now
I am joyously awaiting his own photo uploads, because he's the most awkward human being around girls and I'm putting down five dollars on the fact that there will be at least one goofball-faced self portrait with at least one nipple in the background
i love this guy, he's actually my hero
this is the worst five dollars I have ever made
bonus content, he caught the world's best hoverhand
I'm missing something. What's a hoverhand?
This is a hoverhand:
here we go
I need sleep so I can't watch to see if he deletes or responds til later.
I hope the scowl on my face right now is palpable in the text
I must say you're a great guy for doing that for him! You've spelled out and addressed his faults thoroughly, but he has to be open to considering what you've said on his own. If not, he'll simply continue providing justification for himself.
Dai that was great.
On the train today, I was discussing cameras with a friend who recently invested in some Sony Alpha (wanted a DSLR but had low funds, consulted internet) and he mentioned film and we started discussing it and the costs. All of a sudden this guy in the seats over turns around and says "Are you talking about how expensive it is?" and I was like "Yeah" and he's all like "Tell me about it" etc. and continued just blasting me with information talking real condescending like, I'll put down in dot points the junk that came out of this bag of marble's mouth (spoiler alert, lies).
He then proceeded to show off his K-z and hands me some folder with all his photos printed on paper. they all have shitty poetic captions over the front. He points out his favourite photo which is just of a tree in the sunset (nothing special at all, would be lucky to fetch a friendly 'round here), says some shit about it being in a gallery in Blackwood (suburb he lives in). The caption over the front of the photo said something along the lines of "This tree is dead, the cracking bark reminds me of war, the sun is bringing it back to life, the world is a crazy place". He then starts going on about some photo he took in B&W at midnight of some Koala about to be run over by a car, at this point I zoned out trying not to laugh and didn't really catch any more, luckily my stop came and I got off.Train Dwelling Moron posted:
The 35mm>med format got me so bad oh my god
oh he thinks that's bad well i buy film for $100 per roll and before i can even get into my darkroom i have to defeat five bears at the door by feeding them with 50 dollar bills until they choke to death (they wont take anything smaller)
and i don't even own a camera
I'm so confused, there's no such thing as a Pentax K-z...?
also, lol, 10 shots on SD card and 35mm vs medium frame, oh man what a dingus
