    Default Definition of "NEWBIE"

    On numerous occassions, I've seen this CSer starting threads in our Photo Galleries. However, the beginning word he uses is always "NEWBIE shots" and I'm not too sure when and why I started to notice this. Though I tried hard to ignore, I'm getting irritated by the frequent use of the word "NEWBIE". Having done a search, he has participated in at least 15 model shoots and even more on Events.

    For a Newbie photographer, using the word "Newbie" is like a P plate holder telling other drivers to be patient. That I understand.

    For someone whom has attended several shoots and events, using the word "Newbie" is being humble. That I understand

    What I can't understand is that for someone whom has attended so many shoots and so many events, I'm not too sure what this person's intention is. Does it boost one's ego when others make comments like "You so Pro, where got newbie?"

    Please don't ask me who this person is.

    I'm just wondering if anyone else noticed (unknowingly).

    (Okay...okay... I know some will tell me not to look at his thread =p)

    I can guess who you are talking about. In my opinion, a newbie should be someone who has taken photos less than 8 times of a particular event. Maybe, a newbie is also classified as someone who has not taken photos for a long time or is adjusting to a new camera.
