One of my pet peeves is people who post "search the forum", or "LMGTFU". Makes me wonder if they're that rude in person.

My biggest pet peeve is gas prices. It prevents me from going out and photographing more.

People that say 'zoom with your feet' I hate that phrase.

Also those that think 'post-processing' is some new digital phenomenon. And even worse those that don't realize it's just as easy to screw up now that it was with film (it's just easier to fix now if you know how).

Ride a bicycle...or...get a macro lens, you can shoot strange things around your house.

Gas prices are cheap here, under $3 a gallon at the Chevron station

The very best and most expensive digital projector can neither...

  • Match the quality of the image captured even with a cheap 8Mpixel point and shoot!
  • Come anywhere close to the quality of the projected slide film

I'm not looking for solutions, I'm just ****. Three bucks a gallon isn't cheap. 87 cents is cheap. I miss THOSE days.

Wow, such hate with all this "search first" BS. It's not like it is some simple tech question that just need an answer and thats all.

It's a conversational topic. Is it a new topic? Perhaps not, but I question how many new threads there would be if people were only allowed to make new threads as long as it was not something that anyone else has brought up or asked before.......and looking at the "Similar Threads" links at the bottom shows me the newest thread being a 3 year old "85L peeves" thread......I don't know about anyone else but one of my pet peeves on the forum I mod for is Necro-threads!

Now what is my photography pet peeve? Instagram and all the people who take crappy photos, put a pre-made filter on it, and instantly think they are an amazing photographer.

My pet peeve about my own photography is the fact that I do not make enough time to shoot when I know I have plenty of time to do so

When I was around six years old I can still remember my dad driving by the local gas station and going on a rant about the "dirty something something crooks" raising the price of gas from .21 to .22 cents per gallon.:lol:

Back on topic though, my pet peeve is with females when posing, which includes both professionals and amateurs in this instance. What I'm talking about willis is the dreaded "broken neck" syndrome. For some reason the majority of females suffer from this affliction and most terrible of bad habits. So when I start shooting I warn them right away that unless they want to see me pull out the neck brace, don't tilt the head unless instructed to do so.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

Where did "hate" come into it?
Didn't I answer the OP's question about my pet peeve with my pet peeve? Which is more than a few of you did.
And then I pointed out a way to easily find out more info on a subject that interested the OP by using the similar threads links at the bottom of each thread.

Maybe I should have added a ;) to my answer?

But now I'm more inclined to use a :p.

Sorry I don't use "hate" in the litterally sense. I don't mean people are litterally hating on him (comment wasn't just geared at you) but rather just giving him crap for not searching for a conversational topic.

Well technically not as he asked about photography pet peeves :P (hehe, ok joking and I'll stop now before the ban hammer comes down :D)

Mine is when subjects look at my umbrellas or OCF instead of my camera, even after I tell them to look at the camera.

Mm-hmm. That was when $10,000 was a good annual salary.

In many areas of the USA even, salaries (wages) are still depressed and do not match the increase in fuel costs. In 2003-ish, I worked in a warehouse that paid $12 an hour. In 2012 they pay $12.25. 87 octane is right around $3.39 at the moment. Back then it was about $1.05. If wages paralleled gas prices, those warehouse employees would be making about $36 an hour.
