Thread: Junk Digest #1 : Is Photography a Male Hobby?

    Default Junk Digest #1 : Is Photography a Male Hobby?

    hello there,

    Welcome to my first 'Junk Digest' thread.

    This weeks' topic is-- is photography a male hobby only?

    Too many times I have seen people addressing each other in the forum as 'Brother' , 'Bro' or 'dude'. So much so that it gives me a feeling that photography is largely for males.

    Is that True? And Why?

    If not, maybe the ladies would like to put in a few words in this thread so we know who you are ?

    Dont be shy ! I believe there are definately more than a handful of women into this hobby !

    While photography is enjoyed by both male and female equally, it seems that camera collecting (be it old gear or new technology) is a very male thing, or as you put it, hobby.

    If you look at the avatars carefully, most of the posters here would be female. I have to control myself not to address them as Miss or Madam.

    So the answer to your question is:

    Photography is a female hobby invented by men if you go by CS avatars.

    the photo shows a female photographer, in response to the question posed in this thread "is photography a male hobby?"
