Let me preface this by saying that I am a nice person and I think it is great that there are so many people interested in photography. However.. I've been asked several times why I've been a member for so long with so few posts and here is my response...I feel that this board has gotten a bit out of focus. This is the BUSINESS district, yet there are a lot of "moms with a camera" on here that feel the need to criticize people that are actual professionals. Just because you have money to buy a nice camera does not make you a professional nor give you the right to criticize others on something you know little about. I'm not saying that there aren't some AMAZING photographers on here, because there definetly are. I don't post that much because most of the time I just want to say "maybe you should take a photography class and learn at least the basics" but I don't because I have found that when I do, people's feelings get hurt. I wish the business district would be just that... people in business. It's very hard to run your own business and I have paid my dues and busted my butt to build my business and learn what I know. There are galleries on here if you are just posting a snapshot. If that makes me a wtich then so be it. It is time for some honesty around here.
