So much for that...

Well, so much for keeping my blog open to comments by non-friends...

I just got blasted by someone due to my last post, accusing me of not being a real photographer because a "professional" would use a tripod and wouldn't be "using a cell at arms length" for my member pic.

Well, they've obviously never heard of a casual photo. I'm not a self-portrait kind of guy, if I take pictures of myself, it's on the fly, with no tripod, no setup, no primping.

Also, it would have to be one HELL of a cell phone to capture that original image. I shot that with my Leica-lensed digital.

Finally, I never stated that I was a professional. I only occasionally get paid for my work, but I shoot a lot, and often. I'm what you might call a professional amateur.

People, if you want to counter someone, go directly to the source. Posting negative comments like that, in a public forum, just makes you look bad.
