Great stuff. The boys from England have sorted this sorry mess out once and for all.

Tea anyone?!

I'll ask my butler Hudson to serve it in the morning room :)

Roy DOES have a sense of humor!!

Back on topic: I think the photog was wrong. It wouldn't have been any trouble for her to just say she was too busy at the moment tp explain.
There was really know reason why the OP had to return with his grear.

Well duh! He is British! and he's got a butler so he could just let
the butler being all proper and showing the bad teeth while he himself
could run around in the woods hunting foxes or Robin Hood and
then have afternoon tea party with damsels wearing corsets and oversized
Victorian style dresses
;)

I'm across the great pond and you know how we butchered the language.

"I just don't know why one would need a light meter, or am I a moron??"

I think this question may be mis-stated, seems like it should read,
"Am I a moron?? I just don't know why one would need a light meter".

7 or 8 years ago, pros were doing great "Pro quality" work with 3mp D30's, and everyone was in awe at the ability of this new camera.
Like always, new equipment comes along and automatically the old stuff becomes junk.

I did my first weddings with a Minolta SRT101, a couple of Vivatar lenses and a old Honeywell "Potato Masher" flash. While doing the group shots, I heard a wife tell her husband, who had a Mamiya 2ΒΌ SLR with a Braun flash and battery pak, "See how he sets them up? That's why he gets paid for this".

BTW, he never interrupted me to ask any questions, guess he figured I was kinda busy doing my job.
I don't think he brought his kit in to impress anyone.

I think I remember reading a post about a wedding photog, who was laughing at this guy who came up and started asking her questions in the middle of setup. She said " He didn't even know how to use a light meter and wanted me to stop and explain to him everything. Then he went a borrowed some equipment but I could still tell he didn't know what he was doing because he was shooting with the lens cap on."

I wonder if there is any relationship to the stories???? LOL

Svenska :D
I think it will take the rest of my life to master this language called English even though I currently living in a English speaking country.
Well technically it's a bilingual but who gives a damn about stupid French :D
