Cameras do not just go off by themselves. People press shutter buttons. My point being the same as the OP - camera don't make the photo - the photographer does! LOL!!

If it's fun then that's WHY it's done! Some people have too much fun and just don't get the serious side of taking pictures! LOL!!

Well, I still consider myself a photographer. I'm still a golfer, too, even after watching Bubba Watson.

I feel foolish when people ask me if I'm a photographer. There is no way I could say yes unless I earned my living doing it. I would say I'm just a person with an interested in taking pics.

Just because you don't earn a living taking pictures does not mean you are not a photographer. What is a photographer after all is a person who makes pictures using a camera.
