Make sure your camera is WELL USED AND ABUSED, pushed to the limits and beyond.

Just like this guy's camera;

Then Camera Care Services will confiscate your camera and put it in trust of someone else temporarily until you become a good photographer hahahhaha

But it's also worth noting that having a well-used and abused camera doesn't mean that one has good photos. Merely that one is willing to abuse one's gear. Either that or you got swindled on CS B&S. :bsmilie:

having a well-used and abused camera means that one has had lots more practice with the camera, and is more likely to have worked the subject to get better photos. it also means that one considers the camera a TOOL which does not get in the way of getting photos :)
