So You Have An Expensive Camera? by Sarah-BK So You Have An Expensive Camera? by Sarah-BK
This is basically a sarcastic t-shirt - it is aimed at all those who buy an expensive camera or SLR, only for the sole reason of calling themselves photographers and thinking they're great because of it. By all means, there are thousands of people with expensive cameras, but they do them justice, so this is not aimed at you! And then there are those with the cheaper cameras, and yet still take beautiful photos! :D

It always makes me wonder what makes a person a photographer, but it definitely doesn't stop at having a good camera - this is what I tried to express with this design. Being an awesome photographer is beyond just having expensive equipment.

I really hope you like it! :D
Please click "I'd Wear This"! I know I don't have many watchers so getting to the second round seems a little impossible, but there's nothing wrong with trying I suppose :meow:


Edit - Wow, thank you for all your support so far! Never thought I'd get such a great response :hug: Also, please make sure that if you do like the t-shirt, to click "I'd wear this!" - that is the vote that counts, then it is optional if you would like to add it to your favorites (though, more favorites means it will be more popular and more people will see it!) :D. THANK YOU SO MUCH ONCE AGAIN! :heart:

Edit 2 - Even BIGGER wow.. I'm amongst the top 50 favorites! :O :squee: I just hope with voting this is also true :D Once again, thank you to every single person for your comments and faves!

Oh, and another thing - this quote has been in my head for aages. Apparently, a meme had recently been made which was on the same topic, because someone found it for me and showed it to me... otherwise I had no idea it existed :) Though it may seem somewhat similar to my quote, it is not the same - I make no reference to the professionalism of a photographer. It still remains my own quote with my own thoughts which led to it (which had been thought of long before memes were even a thing, and hey, great minds think alike :D), and in my own words :)

Wonderful! I don't have the MONEY to buy a good camera, but I still think that my pictures are, at least, good.

Thank you!

Isn't money always the problem? ^^; Often money is in the wrong hands...

Your last landscape shot is FANTASTIC!

Great T!!!! I have been a hobbyist photographer for over 30 yrs. I have over 10 film cameras (bodies with multiple lenses). I hope to get my manual prime lenses over to digital. I bought the camera you have. I love this camera!!! I call her M.A.D.dy, men name their expensive toys, but not a toy, a passion. I have a camera, almost everywhere I go (I drive my family crazy, lol). Tc and God bless

Wow. Longer than I've been alive! My father was a hobbyist photographer in his days - and he still has his film camera and a few lenses too - but I've never used it myself :) Must have been interesting for you to make the switch to digital!

Same here! I'm always the one people turn to for photos - and if I don't have a camera they give me theirs to do the job anyway ;P It is truly a passion I agree - and you seem to have lived with it longer than I have :)

even i agree with you a bit, i think that's impossible to buy cheep camera because good camera is really expensive one...
i was browsing for one and...believe it or not, i would rather buy used car than to invest in all equipment that i would have to...idk why cameras are so expensive...idk what's on camera body except sensor that is soooo expensive...ok, optics are...but body...:S
