Thread: i shall blame no other

  1. #1

    Default i shall blame no other

    "if my photographs are not good enough, i am not good enough as a photographer.

    i shall not blame my camera, or my lens, or my film, or the weather, or poor light, or lack of photographic opportunities.

    i shall only blame my lack of skill, my lack of patience, my lack of vision, my lack of observation.

    with this firmly in my mind, i have no doubt that one day my photographs will improve."

    So in order to be a photographer, you must first be a con man?

    No, many many photographers are very humble and honest people, just like me, but sometime I have to boast a bit, if not my customers thinks that I don't know how to take pictures. But seriously I don't like to do this, I would prefer take pictures more, talk less.

    On the second thought, you are quite right, there is a word: "con artist", so it shows that "con" and "artist" are closely related.
