I like it when people start new threads, even though the topic is covered in an existing thread. What's wrong with having more threads on the same topic?

Whats your photography pet peeve? And how do you fix it?

Anyway, let's get into the spirit of this and list some pet peeves, as the OP requested.

One of my biggest pet peeves is noise grain. I hate the way it looks, and in my opinion, it practically ruins any image in which it's noticeable.

Howm do I fix it? Well, I don't do noise reduction, so the way I keep the noise down is to not shoot my 50D over 400 ISO, nor my 5Dc over 800 ISO. And I try to avoid shooting scenes that have large, dark, out of focus areas in the background.

By the way, that other thread on thios topic is closed, so starting a new thread was a great idea - thank you, Thinkerer!


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I don't have pet peeves. I'm an enlightened being. When someone irks me, I realize they have only done so out of their own ignorance and I must have mercy on them. Some may view this attitude as smug, and to them I can only say... Patience, my child. In time, enlightenment will come to you as well.

LOL

Ok not really.

Here's a comment someone once left on one of my photos (original comment can be seen here (external link)):

"This is a spectacular shot. The focus, the depth of field, the exposure, the lighting... I am very jealous of that lens."

Jealous of the LENS? LKWEJlksdfnfdklsdflmnd​sf

The links don't appear until you've posted your question.

At the risk of alienating a moderator, I'll repost this:

The forum rules wrote:
If you know an answer to a question either answer it or say nothing. Giving newbies blunt answers like "search the forum" is not allowed - please use the typing effort to giving the answer instead. Or just give the link to that post you wished the newbie should have searched for. Respect newbies - you were a newbie once.

A simple search before this thread was posted would have provided 7 links to seven threads. Which was the point that you ignored so that you could post your comment.

What are your photography pet-peeves?

The thread linked to was started in 2008 and last post in 2009. I don't see what the issue of a new thread is almost 3 years later? People have changed, technology has changed and I'm sure pet peeves have changed.

So instead of the post having any value it deteriorates into a bunch of people discussing searching, mini-searches, etc. Now, that's a waste.

I don't get this logic. I'm sure your could use search for most all new posts and come up with something. I understand the need to manage the traffic to some degree but sometimes people are too anal about it.

INSTAGRAM. The myriad of Facebook posts from self proclaimed "professional" half-eaten breakfast photographers. No, your mutilated food does NOT become art with the addition of a vintage filter.


It doesn't matter how big your camera is, it's how you use it! :cool:

Yeah, at the very least.

To return to the metatopic: I doubt that someone who starts a thread asking for pet peeves could fulfill the same purpose by checking the archives. That isn't a request for technical information; it's more of a social inquiry. It invites a lively round-table discussion among people who are here now.

And, on the topic, I currently have plenty of peeves because I bought a new camera and am trying to figure out what it can do and how to make it do it. I wanted better macro. Upgrading didn't help much with that. Canon's macro attachment will be unavailable for months, so I got a set of close-up lenses, 1, 2, and 4 diopters. They don't help a whole lot, either.

Sincerely,
OhWell

I agree....a quick scan of the main page would indicate that most new threads created are about something that has been discussed here before, usually many multiple times. In the spirit of creating new conversation, I think it's great that people will bring up already discussed topics so that it can be discussed again. Even though a topic has been discussed before, bringing it back up after a period of time usually creates a whole new and different conversation.
