Thread: I'm such a dumbo

  1. #1

    Default I'm such a dumbo

    sigh...
    my thom hogan ebook of D200 came yesterday.
    becos i hate to read acrobat files in computer, decided to print them.

    sent for printing, told them got color ones, print color.
    so b&w is 5cents, color is 80c.
    i THOUGHT(my biggest mistake) color pages less than 50, so it's ok.

    then came my biggest nightmare, they even printed those window print screen in COLOR!and comes to about 350 pages of color.
    total cost of the entire Ebook comes out to about $280!!i nearly fainted.

    in the end, i think they see me pitiful gal, gave me discount.
    but i still need to pay about $180 for the entire 700+ pages of GUIDE TO D200!!!!
    SIGH....
    now my heart ACHE like dunno what!

    so, this thread is for dumbo newbies like me....you have been 'warned'.

    typo error, should be "bim" instead of "dumb"

    should have used the money to hire a gigolo to teach you

    ah? i'd spend the $180 on some fashion photog's books. understand how u feel. but if the book really helps, then i think it's a good investment. keke. still can't justify within myself if i were u.

    Must limit the Newton force of the spank.

    Anyway Jeanie, no use crying over spilled milk. Just do a detailed read up of your colorful book. Hope it improves your understanding & skills

    photography is only my hobby.
    damn, i'm spending too much liao.

    dunno can sell the Ebook or not.must read whether will violate thom's laws.

    i forgot another rant.

    the 700+ pages are printed on 1 side.

    meaning....it is DAMN bloody thick.i separate out into 2 bindings.each one is still damn bloody thick!DOH!

    and i was thinking of a B&W filter for my beloved 70-200 i just bough.now all go to that damn print.
