    True, but the way she responded is a strong indication of stupidity, either inherent or acquired.

    This is one of the most accurate thins I have ever read here. Much rather shoot with the PhD's though...

    True, I don't know a thing about makeup... Or who cheated on who, and who ANY of the American idol / next top model "stars" are.

    I'm ignorant too, our perception that this is less important is sadly relative. As much as I'd hate to admit it, to some, that is important stuff and film stuff is irrelevant and stupid..

    Perspective and such...

    thanks.

    And mostly, the PhD's tend to be easier to pose for me, but that's because I have a technical mind, not emotional, some models have a hard time understanding direction because I only tell them where to move their arm for example and not "how their arm feels" which is what one model got mad at me shoot, I didn't describe the emotion of the arm so she couldn't understand how to move it.

    I'm sure some photogs find it easier to describe emotion and find PhD's to not move gracefully or lack emotion, so again, it's all relative to perspective.

    An intelligent person is aware of their ignorance, a stupid person is not - this is what makes them stupid.
    As Schiller said, "Mit der dummheit kampfen Goetter selbst vergebens (With stupidity the Gods themselves struggle in vain)" (from "The Maid of Orleans").

    That must have been a very funny and somewhat frustrating interaction at the time. Reading the transcript, though, left me with a "that's not too surprising" reaction.

    Sometimes these youngens should be obscene and not heard -- where are the images?!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    The conversation was yesterday, shoot is next week, then process and scan, it will be a while, remember... Film... Don't start thinking like the models.

    Sometimes even when I say "film" people ask me "but can I see some of the pics please?" Like the back of the camera has a magical film window where you can see the images on the film "instant chrome" haha

    Silly people...
