Would you expect them to say "make me look bad"???
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

"How much is that worth?"

The response I'd like to give to that begins and ends with F but it "I wouldn't care to discuss that" seems to sound a little more civil.

I've been on Instagram for a little while now and it's funny how many photos I've seen people post that are covered with "PROOF" watermarks...

My favorite and most heard line has to be "Wow, that's a great camera, I bet it takes great pictures."  I'm sure no one else has heard that one. 

And when asked to take an outdoor group photo, "We can just take our picture [of us all in blue suits] here in the conference room [with blue walls, two different white balanced fluorescent bulbs, and projector going] and you can drop us into the outdoor background, right?"
EOS 1D X, 5DIII, M + EF 24 f/1.4II, 50 f/1.2, 85 f/1.2II, 300 f/2.8 IS II || 16-35 f/4 IS, 24-70 f/2.8II, 70-200 f/2.8II || TS-E 17 f/4, 24 f/3.5II || M 22 f/2, M 11-22 f/4-5.6 IS | 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS || 1.4x III, 2x III
I only shoot at ISO 100 with perfect technique - should I get a Nikon?
