It's been four days since this thread was started and not a single person has replied...we must really be tired of hearing whatever those 10 things are! For better luck, try placing the content directly in the post (not simply a link to whatever you want us to look at).

But be careful about reproducing copyrighted material. A small sample or a description is okay.

It's tightrope time!

These are slowly starting to diminish, but I've experienced every one of them.

Whoever wrote the ten items must have been distracted part of the time. Some are things that photographers would say, not things that they would hear.

Personally I'm tired of hearing...

"Nobody values my work"
"Exposure doesn't pay the bills"
"Fauxtographers and MWACs are ruining the industry"
Run of the mill photographers referring to their work as "their art"
"What price should I charge"
"Facebook are evil money-grabbing SOBs who is joining me on Google +"
"If you don't shoot on M you're a hack"
"If you don't use OCF you're not a professional"
In fact the use of the word "professional" full stop
"If you don't retouch you are lazy and a hack"

I could go on... but they make me yawn too much.

For as many things that consumers say or or do... they are no worse than those in the Industry itself.

Well, exposure DOESN'T pay the bills. At least not in the "I'll give you a photo credit and it'll be awesome!" kind of way.

I'd shoot for a free billboard in a high traffic area though...that kind of exposure is called "advertising" and is WAY different than what most people are **** about.
