is when.......

pride - you cannot take any criticisms of your photos, and you demand that the person who dares to criticise your photos must first produce better photos than you before you even consider their viewpoints. you also look down on others who have inferior camera equipment than you, or routinely dismiss other people's works as "merely snapshots" or "junk".

greed - you put a price on everything you shoot, and you must earn more than other photographers when taking on assignments. when you shoot at events, you grab the best spots and use your ladder to obstruct the view of photographers behind you. when buying camera equipment you demand the most freebies and the greatest discounts.

envy - you can't stand it if other photographers are better, more well known, more highly paid than you, so much so that you must make frequent snide remarks to put them down so that you can build up your own sense of self importance. you also hate it when other photographers have better camera equipment than you, or have the opportunity to shoot more beautiful models than you.

anger - you are livid when others dare to insult your camera brand or equipment. you are furious when people say your photographs are crap or suck. you blow your top when people have the cheek to ask you to provide free photographs. you go absolutely ballistic when your worst enemy wins a lucrative photo competition.

lust - you are more interested in getting into the model's pants than in photographing the model. your entire portfolio consists of sleazy thinly-disguised porno shots of seductive models wearing nothing or close to nothing. you are admitted to hospital due to excessive nasal blood loss.

gluttony - you simply do not know when to stop shooting. you are so eager to shoot 1000 frames per day that as long as there is something in front of your lens, it's worth shooting! the most important thing for u is to abuse your camera, lenses, memory cards to the max and beyond! when you finally decide to sell your camera, the shutter count will be somewhere in the millions.

sloth - you are too darn lazy to read the f***king manual. you are too darn lazy to learn the basics of photography. you are too darn lazy to improve your skills. you are too darn lazy to do anything at all. and did i mention you are too darn lazy even to press the shutter? i'm even surprised you could be bothered to read this far!

good stuff. reflects on what CoffeeShop is turning into.. oops I meant ClubSnap is turning into..

I'm visiting other photography forums more often now becos they suffer less of the 7sins syndrome. Also they are less likely to bring coffeeshop talk into any tom,dick,harry sub forums. what has CS become now.. CoffeeShop?

Along with the buy/sell ratings there should be a '7 deadly sins' rating for the members - mods please look into this ;)

You are good.... :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

You must have been to so many uncountable photo shoots with other fellow photogs to have obeserved all that. :sweatsm:

But frankly speaking, I fall into at least 3 categories of the sins... :embrass:
