    A lot of truth in that article . Worked as a wedding photographer 25 years ago and after 5 years stopped photographing them, not my cup of tea but learned a hell of a lot about myself and wedding photography in general that was completely unexpected , it was very enlightening and it is a Business .

    I recently looked at a group of photographs made by a "professional" photographer. More than half were awful as they were shot in full sun at noontime. Very ugly shadows on the models face.

    In a way this might fit under sin #2 but I think an 8th sin might be added, something like "I don't have to think, I have a modern expensive camera. All I have to do is set the correct program mode and everything is done for me."

    It's that old adage - if you buy a Steinway, you own a Steinway. But if you buy a camera, you're a professional photographer.

    I can't imagine, not in a million years, trying to make a living with photography. I admire the hell out of you pros.

    It's not just the ones that delude themselves they are "professionals" that get me, but the ones who labour under the misapprehension that they are "Artists"
