You don't have to think when you look like that.

I think most the mt.net crowd (renowned for their good looks, virility, freedom from pathogens, and their motility) would rather have a photo shoot with her than with you. That subset of us which are happily married, of course, don't see the appeal.

I seriously doubt that. I'm listening to Boys Don't Cry right now too, people love me.

Photography degree I presume. The wife is doing culinary stuff out here in Nashville. For what a degree costs there I would hope the graduates make bank. No offense to you and yours, but I have no idea how a photography major makes serious cash after school. Other than luck and maybe some skill. It might also be I have a hard time paying someone for something I can do well enough for my needs, myself and a decent camera. I've met a few photo majors here. Not many, but they seem way too reliant on Photoshop to make up for poor camera skills/timing. The lady we hired for my wedding is a perfect example. There isn't a photo she took that doesn't need some touch up.

Also if I see one more photo student taking pictures of old train tracks and calling it art I'm going to stab/beat them to death with my cane.

Edit: Found this again


Don't get me wrong. I see photography like dancing. You can teach anyone to do it to some degree, but some people just have a natural talent. Some photo majors I meet just don't have the imagination for it.

I love Frankie Valli. I saw Jersy Boys a few month back.

I never asked once what credientials a photograher I've hired ever had, I just want to see the portfolios. A photograph major seems like the biggestr waste of money ever. Sure you can go and learn cool tricks and play in the studio all day long, but that doesn't mean squat.

I also hate art students in general. Is this is coming from a guy who took three years of computer graphics and photography in high school and went to art school.

Plus eveyrone knows that all anyone needs is a $2,000 lens to be a good photographer.

I taught myself how to be a mediocre photographer in less than a year. Prior to that a photograph I had taken was used on the apple website. Call it my gift to them for all the hard work. Also I knew a product engineer there and it was a picture of him and his wife at their wedding.
