You might be an old photographer if you recently did something only an old photographer would do, but you don't remember what it was.

Well, when you're young, you're hung, but then your hung is over, that's a hangover.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

Another frequent mistake is forgetting to turn IS off on a tripod, or forgetting to turn it on after it's taken off the tripod.

I posted that a note taped to the camera platform on the tripod helps. You replied. Remember?

You might be an old photographer if you :

...still move your foot OUT of the way instead of using it to partly-catch a camera you dropped. (try it with an F-1)

...use a self-timer to take selfies instead of some stick

...can remember drop-off photo booths in parking lots everywhere

...can remember when them newfangled "one hour" shops started putting those parking lot booths out of business

...have a log book someplace with recorded aperture and shutter speeds used on multiple rolls of film

Haha. I was a teenager in the 70's and we used those. There was a good-looking girl working at one that my friends and I frequented. We caller her the Photo Fox.:-D

You remember the excitement of collecting your prints and seeing for the first time how the photos you took, maybe weeks ago, turned out.

Hype chimping - The act of looking at your screen after every shot, then wildly behaving like it's the best picture in the world, to try and impress other photographers around you.

a few years ago a friend made a comment that his kid, probably 8 at the time, saw a sign for a one hour photo shop and said something like, "that seems like a really long time."

try getting kodak disc film developed kid.
