If the self-proclaimed pro can call themselves pro, what makes them think that others cannot call themselves a pro? Isn't that IRONIC?
They are calling themselves pro, and when they see others who may be junior to them, who also like to join in the trade to become a pro, they will deny their credibility. That's why I asked, "What cert do they have that empower them to take such a position.
I know of some people print namecards, than go to motor show, pc show whatever show as long got models in the show.
take pictures of all the female models, maybe pose with them to take a shots, give the models namecards, ask for contacts.
later post alot of photos of the models in the show in clubsnap, and everyone comments "pro shots!" here "pro shots!" there.
so maybe this is better way than get a cert to become a pro.
instead you need to hold a 1D, then people would say, "Whaaaaa, you so pro ...."
Guess in 2 yrs' time, u need a medium format to get such comment again ....
always the Light, .... always.
when someone posts a photo for critique they are usually looking for constructive feedback so they can improve. its very sad that some take it as an open invitation to put a person down. if you have nothing constructive to say about a photo, it is not a crime to just keep silent and let others do the talking.
A lack of emotional intelligence. They do not know how to relate to others.
i thought this thread topic was dicussed to death before?
the way to properly critic pics is to say only the good things.
occasionally, can be replaced by using thumbs up icons.
