bad blog pictures


i'm so over bloggers who take their own pictures, but only take them using a shallow depth of field. sometimes it's good to have everything in focus.(why, pray-tell, do we only care about the chocolate chips in this picture, and not at all about the pumpkin pie spice?) is this not commonly understood? do some people not know you can actually change the aperture on a lens? do they even know what that means? this is part of the reason i resent digital photographers(who never learned the basics of photography). i mean, just because you own an expensive camera and can take a picture and look at it right away, doesn't mean you're good at it.

no, i'm not the best/most experienced photographer. yes, i'm a snob.

Pictures serve a variety of purposes & only one of them is artistic. Not everyone thinks the same way...and that's okay.

I found your blog through your link to Grosgrain's swimsuit giveaway. This post made me laugh ;-) I am one of those photographers! I have to have 50 shots to get a few good ones. With a film camera I'm hopeless. But I do sometimes use the macro setting, which is fun to play with. One day I want to take a photography class. Or at least read the camera manual.
