Well, ya'll can feel a bit better, while the lighting and exposure seem ok (probably choose #4 and #13 lighting settings from the Standard Photographers Handbook </sarcasm>), it's just....no. http://awkwardfamilyphotos.com/2013/07/21/alice-in-wonderland/

I enjoyed that very much.

I enjoy hot chicks with big cameras.

I was once at a gig and there was a hot chick shooting with an old medium format hasselblad that looked like she had no idea what she was doing. She was hot.

Folks, I think this 1st video (in a series definitely WORTH watching), pretty much explains it all, when you need to know what it takes to be a professional photographer:

MWAC Attack-Episode 1: The Camera


Remember, if you wanna be a "Pro", make sure and use the "P" setting on your camera, as that THAT is the professional setting on your cameras.

Of course, most all of the quality folks here on the list knows this already.

:)

cayenne

ps. Do make sure and give this whole episode a watch, and the next ones are pretty 'informative' too.

... Speechless lol

She may know enough about photography to be able to make fun of beginners, but she knows nothing about how to be a professional photographer.

Here's a tip Missy..... As a professional photographer, one of the major requirements is to be able to sell your services and skills to the public. Making fun of them is NOT going to increase your client base.
The best camera is the one in your hands

Oh dear... Deary deary deary me.  What a scary thought - she thinks she is a good professional photographer, and gives out advice like: "you don't need to know about exposure or f-stop or shutter speed". "Just let the camera do it all for you, cameras are so smart these days"!

lol!!  :P

Does Missy even have a portfolio we can critique?  I'm glad she's happy with her photography, but I'm 99% sure her photos are not high standard.  Pretty much anyone can take a photo and sell it (eg $1 for each photo) - somewhat fulfilling the definition of 'professional' (ie making money from this activity) but that says nothing about the quality.

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

She is making fun of people, it isn't real. She is mocking beginners.

Wtf! I watched it and as difficult as it was, I actually made it to through the first diabolical episode. Made me want to throw up. It's just her voice, it's so annoying. I'm guessing she is not actually a professional (shudder) photogr.... Yuk I can't even say that word now!
