Somehow I managed to find an understanding girlfriend.

Me too, and she's instrumental to my photography because we go places together and she's very patient with me taking pictures, but also keeps track of time so we don't linger with one subject and move on in a timely manner. Sometimes she will even hold some of my gear for me, for instance if I'm using two bodies, she will hold the idle body (but she complains about the weight of a gripped body and the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II so I won't burden her too much).

Somehow it works great for us - she likes going places and I love photography. Hence we're something of a dynamic duo! :)

when watching porn you critique Lighting whitebalance focus and composition

Wow!,..this really made me laugh!  My girlfriend pointed out that I have all the signs and that I need help!
If it is any consolation, you are among brothers here with the same symptoms ;D

;D ;D ;D Now that would be the height of being a photo video geek

On the other hand 'porn' may actually also apply to stills I guess. It brings a whole different meaning to the words 'exposure', 'aperture', and yes, 'focus breathing' heheheh  :o ;)

Hmmm I'm a geek too, trying to express those things in photo-terminology...  ::)

You might be a photo geek if you have painted your walls 18% grey.

When I get my Sigma 200-500, I'll have it in 18% grey; Everyone and their monkey is going to take photos of it, they may as well look nice.

PS - Therein is another sign.
See what I see: 6500K, 160 cd/m^2, ICC 2, gamma 2.2.

Or try to analyze the bokeh of your own vision... ???
