    Everybody seems scared of that title! It's just an occupation title whether you're good or bad at it. Yes, I call myself a "photographer", esp now that I get paid to do it.

    A photographer is define as someone who takes photos, so if you take photos, you are a photographer! Why are there so many other terms given to person who performs the action of taking photo?

    If you teach you are call a teacher, be it sunday school teacher, tution teacher or school teacher, if you teach you are a teacher.

    If you bake, you are called a baker. Whether what you bake is nice or not, if you bake you are called a baker.

    So you you take a photo, you are a photographer. If a 2 year old boys takes a shot, and produce a photo, he is the photographer. Cos when people sees the photo, people will ask who is the photographer who take this shot? No one will ask who is the camera man, who is the camera operator, who is the lens man and etc..

    I'll start:
    I guess I can call my self as a "photo-teller" rather than a photographer because I uses the photograph I took to tell a short story together with the caption...

    my question is that - Do you print out any PHOTO ?
    If not..I rather see that merely taking image.

    Click on shutter, do digital processing..and no Photo...is not a complete process of photography.

    Just like..have u ever been to a photography exhibition with there are only PICTURE shown on LCD and no actual PHOTO on display ???

    I tot you're getting "out of this #@iT hole..."? http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=288672

    So why are you still in "Crapsnap" wasting your time? Don't you have better things to do other than flaming local photographers with "most singaporean photographers are all tech and no talent bums" ???

    Please just take more photos and seal your lips? Grow up can?
    Dun blame the camera...blame the one behind the viewfinder :bsmilie:
