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!
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! 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 _______________________________________________
Edit - Wow, thank you for all your support so far! Never thought I'd get such a great response 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!) . THANK YOU SO MUCH ONCE AGAIN!
Edit 2 - Even BIGGER wow.. I'm amongst the top 50 favorites! I just hope with voting this is also true 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 ), and in my own words
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 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
Well, investing in good camera equipment is fine if you really love photography and you know how to use the stuff to make it worth the money It's true however, maybe cameras are a bit too pricey at times, but by all means they have their plusses over the cheaper cameras Though that wasn't the point here - it's just that some people do end up buying expensive cameras and then think they can do miracles and take awesome shots and call themselves photographers, when in actual fact they just don't have it in them..
yes, i know what you are talking about... i got my first pro cam when i was 3 yo or so back then pro cams was cheaper, lot cheaper and my dad got me one i have shots in my gallery of my tools... at the moment, in my gallery, all shots there, are made with my phones... and no way that i will take pro one with me as long as there's one phone with good camera
nope it was one of first SLRs (analog) - [link] just black one, there's whole story in description
from this morning, i have carl zeiss 12.1mpx - [link] in my pocket, so i am pretty ok with it (i messed adding exif to image, but i have 12 instead of 8 ) so, why should i invest minimally 500usd in 7-8mpx canon or nikon?
Haha wow! That's cool, as long as it suits your needs
Well, I actually invested about 1000USD (approximately, because I use Euro ) to get some camera equipment, but it's because I felt a pocket camera or phone didn't quite cover my requirements Definitely not to show off or to call myself a photographer though..
But not everyone who's capable of taking decent photos is also capable of making their own cameras I'm sure that's what I'd have done if I was that good! Though it's not only a matter of sensors - different lenses are useful for different photos
But I don't know who made the meme, for all I know it was a friend I told this to who made it. Still doesn't make the quote his/hers, but just the one who took it and made a meme of it.. but anyways it would have been nice participating anyway I suppose Thank you!
I love this! It reminds me of a story I once heard! Same sort of quote but using it the other way round "A photographer goes to a dinner party one night, the host says 'You're an amazing photographer, you must have a great camera!' The photographer said nothing. At the end of the night after the meal he turned to the host 'Tat was a lovely dinner! You must have a great stove!'"
Got to love it xD Great design! I'd definately wear this!
Well, if I am one of the three winning entries then yes, it would be sold in the deviantWEAR section The more votes I get, the more likely it will happen If not, well I've never really gone about making t-shirt prints, but if someone told me how, I would make it available! Thanks!
