    *snort* where do you hail from? Gotta love parenting messaging boards. I was banned from my original birth board. It happens when your a loud mouth that goes against the grain of the "perfect moms" :lmao:

    KELLY,

    I'd rather not say as I like to keep my forums separate. They are all the same, anyway.

    Come sit on the bad mommy bench with me. It is nice and comfy, especially when you don't have a stick shoved up your butt. ;)

    ON People thinking SLR's do everything for you


    We used to sell one SLR at work, and a girl came in one day, all showing off that she was looking at a "good" camera and thought she was so great...

    So she's there looking through the SLR and she asks "why isn't it zooming?"

    me: "ummm because you have to turn the lens at the front"

    her: ":O I thought this camera was fully automatic!!!"

    me: umm no, you still have to zoom it yourself.

    so she puts her hand on the lens and starts adjusting the "zoom" (which was actually the focus) with the Auto lock on.


    Ugh. that was painful. Needless to say, she didn't buy it.

    (infact, I boxed it up, put it behind the counter and bought it myself)

    I'm sure this was noted in some variation or another, but my biggest photography pet peeve ever is people who do not even know how to properly use their cameras, but have their own photography Web sites and businesses actually charging people for their crap.

    When I see a thread on here that someone has posted asking for pp help on a severely under or overexposed, out of focus image from a shoot that they have recently done for pay, it makes me so mad.

    That looks like a personal site to me. I see nothing wrong with posting pics (bad or not) on your personal website.... It is charging outlandish prices for bad pictures that is the bad part.

    yea, i should have been more clear. it probably is a personal site, but most of the photos were posted in a facebook album with the description ="New passion and business. If you want the original pixes or posters. Let me know and I'll tell you what price." so i'm assuming hes trying to sell them. I dont want to get down on him for trying or anything, but i think it had something to do with him having the job as "photo editor" for our yearbook at my university

    My pet peeve is when the people at Ritz have to print the two pictures I wanted off a second time because they couldn't get the order right the first time.

    I also don't like when people pee in my cheerios.
