I have a 60D and shoot on full auto = I'm a twat (cos some things never change!)
at least I don't shoot on full auto
Shooting mode is irrelevant. The end result is.
But shooting on full auto and refusing to learn any other modes AND calling yourself a photographer is what I was referring to. The post was a reply to the "do you think either deserve to call themselves photographers?". Just my way of saying hell no!
Now, if they can use full auto as well as other modes to create stunning images then yes I would say that person could be called a photographer.
You gotta know the limitations of your equipment and be able to push yourself and be creative. That person Roo was talking about sounds like the opposite of that.
