People who use their cellphones at weddings to take pictures and get in the way of a perfect shot. UGH!

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

People on forums who create a thread, post photos in it and then bump the thread 24 hours later complaining they've had (insert number) views and no comments, then putting some type of "woe is me" comment.
Even worse is when they don't even wait for 24 hours before they sook.

Get over it sunshine.
You are not the only one it happens to and it doesn't make you special.

If you're posting to get "oooh...nice photo" type comments or to have sun blown up where the sun doesn't shine, you're posting for the wrong reasons.

I have a major pet peeve that I encounter a lot: I do concert photography, and at most venues, there's a no flash rule. And yet, at pretty much every show I shoot, there are always one or two people in the pit who mount flash guns on their cameras, even though they're not using them, which then invariably block your shots. It enrages me. We are all there to do a job, and these asshats are too selfish to behave accordingly.

OK, pet peeves

no one should ever try to sell me a software upgrade and list it's benefits with any mention of the term "mouse travel" as in "relocated icons reduce mouse travel"

If mouse travel is a serious problem for you, upgraded software is not the solution.

I would however appreciate an app that would make "beer fridge travel" a less time consuming operation. I have tried to carry larger quantities per trip with diminishing returns on time invested. Any ideas?

When taking photos of a college football game and having TV video people who think the dashed lines around the sidelines of the field aren't meant for them and then keep getting in the way of my shots.

It sounds like you need an equipment upgrade with some special software: a tube attached to a USB device that you could click on an icon and it would suck some cold beer into your glass?

Didn't you know that TV crews have a completely different set of rules to every one else.

I'm not talking about the TV crews doing the TV broadcast of the game. I'm talking about television sports reporters/cameramen with their video recorders trying to video highlights for their sports broadcasts on the local news. Totally different animals.

People keeping their lens hoods reversed on their lens. I mean, if you're not gonna use, it, leave the damn thing at home.

I also hate it when ducks appear in the background and ruin my artistic street photography.

Oh, and people asking why their 100% crops of their lens wide open at ISO 1600 1/30s aren't sharp.

The very reason for carrying a gun...you could get assaulted like the photographer did over and owl.

Wait here's my pet peeve....guys thinking they can bump into you because you broke some local rule...

Agreed.
I don't mind if they disagree with me when talking or yelling at me. But when their hands start going towards my face or they decide to be "passive" physical by bumping, or just blocking where I'm walking it is crossing a line.


---------------Camera, Lens, Flash stuff.. but still wanting more

People who reckon that an iPhone does just as good a job as a DSLR.
Being asked what instagram filter I used. (only happened once and I still moan on about it)
People branding the word "Pro" when they are nowhere near. Like an ex colleague who took his sisters wedding shots with a 1000D with kit lens, making a total cock of it ruining the photos and using it to advertise himself as a "part time professional photographer"

Personal pet hate of myself,
Seeing amazing photos on here taken by someone and thinking "I need that lens to get photos like that"
Seeing people who only use auto and have no idea how to use a top of the range camera and getting insanely jealous and annoyed that they have one and I don't hah (just being honest)

And this one, nearly forgot about it. "How many megapixels does that have?"
