    You use that telephoto lens or are you just over-compensating?

    I think that Sean should offer an OFFICIAL A.P.U.G. ALL ACCESS PHOTOGRAPHY PASS along with the APUG T-shirts and coffee mugs. Nicely laminated on a beaded chain and, of course, impressively bearing the official APUG holographic seal so that it can't be counterfeited. It would certainly offer as much legitimacy as all of those other phoney official credentials that you can buy online.

    Oops, Maybe this suggestion doesn't belong in the "ethics" forum
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Or an official APUG trench coat.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Do you zoom or use a fixed focal length?

    Someone beat us to it! There was a Washington DC based Newsweek (I think) photographer who sold laminated "press passes" that declared the bearer could access anything anywhere anytime as a joke back in the 90's. I think he got tired of all the little passes for each and every gov't building he had to get! I still have mine around here somewhere!!

    Oh yeah - not calling anyone a dork but me.
    I am a bit confused.....

    Your looking for a way to pass yourself off as something your not....in otherwords your trying to become official as a photographer, when your not officially photographing for anyone other than yourself?

    I have shot with "Official" press ID and I have photographed for myself, I just bring my cameras and start shooting and really don't give a shit what anyone says, as long as your not doing something to break the law, then why worry about it...for fun, I think many of us ahve put the stupid little hat flag in our hat band, but I have never seen anyone really do it seriously..if you want an "Official" ID, sign up for NYIP(New Your Institute of Photography) and they will send you an "Official" NYIP press pass and claim it will get you into all kinds of things!!!! LOL (NOT!!)

    There are so many things to photograph, I've never had the need to go anywhere someone doesn't want me to go.

    One thing about the church project I'm currently doing. It's rare* that one is told they can't go in a church.


    * although it has happened :o
