    2. When you stop bothering about what the next photographer uses.

    23. Own a Lomo/Holga. Every photographer worth his/her salt would have one stashed away somewhere for that extra creative outlet.

    You know I'm just kidding ya? (Have to add disclaimer since Student is on this thread and might rain hot stones on me)

    16. by not surfing Clubsnap.......???
    17. by not ogling at models while shooting
    18. by not keep buying the latest equipments....
    19. by not keep shooting models in bikinis only...........
    20. by not asking new TFCD models to wear tube and short skirts only for their maiden shoots.
    21.
    but ogling at models keeps men youthful. and youthful vigour leads to better photos!
