    When someone picks up the knowledge of the craft of photography and understates how to operate a camera and a light meter without any aid from the camera and is able to do so producing meaningful images, then, they are a photographer. It is not keeping your camera on automatic and firing enough pictures to put them together to form an animation. It is putting thought in to pressing the button...most times.

    I would concur with this definition, for photographers, philosophers and poets.

    Damn.... that means I'll have to call myself a polymath!

    As I get older, titles are becoming less important to me. Most people are like a diamond that has many facets. You'll miss the whole jewel if you just look at one facet. Calling me a "photographer" is not that important to me. I'm not what I do. However, I'd like to be called a "Renaissance man"
