    MAAN (much ado about nothing)
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    But then, how come that "case" got onto the blog of a professional? photography magazine.

    First I thought that was an American issue of intolerance, the kind of glimpse of a man regarding as sexual insult kind of thing.

    But the reaction of many other member showed me it isn't.

    Entertainment value? I mean, "Alex" is one pretty lady and she gave quite a professional performance in her video...it sounded/looked more like a promo tape for an acting job.

    I got to the point in the video where she didn't quit at having the photog insist on calling her Alex.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    It was a very odd video. Firstly, why even make such a thing if you decide not to 'out' the photographer in question? Unless, that is, the photographer is so universally famous that the name "A" is enough for us to know it's Annie Leibovitz making this gossip-worthy information that's important enough to be picked up by mainstream photo sites. Seemingly the intern was desperate to share this partial gossip with the world rather than keep in with her circle of friends which would be the case for any other weird account of interning.

    I wonder if assisting for pay is better than interning for free. For some people, not paying for a service or a product reduces the perceived value. If I interned for free, I'd expect some knowledge and respect for my sweat. After all, we all had to start from the bottom and want to be treated well.

    An apparently successful attempt at viral marketing for fame, fortune and a good job. She's every bit as narcissistic, calculating, and shrewd as "A", and will no doubt land on her feet, unlike the dead cat-sicle.

    That's not why she did it. She made the video to enter a contest (which required video entry) for "worst internship experience", with the winner getting a $500 gift card to Macy's. I wish people had the intelligence to read before they start spouting off about something they know nothing about. Its so much more fun to slam someone you don't know, isn't it?

    Be fair to us ignorant people.

    Where could we find that information about a contest?
    I did not even see that there was a video (blocked by my computer).
