I am also highly doubtful that dedicated photo stores would market it as a professional camera.

    I currently own a Nikon D7000, worth $1100 in the US (that's without a lens) and that's designed and marketed as amateur/enthusiast. When it comes to Nikon, and with the arguable exception of the D300s (some professionals simply need the APS-c 1.5x factor), you don't reach cameras designed and marketed as "professional" before the D800, which is $3000 in the US (also without a lens). Other brands tell a very similar story.

    I took the following, unedited picture with a four year old Nikon D60 which, even when it was new, was designed and marketed as an entry level amateur-camera. It cost $740 (with a lens and small, external flash included) here in Sweden, and do note that Sweden has high taxes.

    Whilst it's true that the lens, a 50/1,4, is techically regarded professional, it's an old model, one of the absolute cheapest professional lenses and its strongest selling point has been beaten by the non-professional, even cheaper 50/1,8G.

    What I'm trying to say isn't that money == quality (although I understand that it might be easy to think that's what I believe, based on this reply). What I'm trying to say is that you have to go very, very far up to find cameras that are actually designed and marketed as professional and those are the only cameras that I, personally, refer to when speaking about professional equipment.

    If the camera that took your photo is a Nikon D3100, Canon 1100D, Pentax K-x or Sony A37, then fair enough, they're good cameras capable of very good image quality, even better than in your photo, not trying to bash but it's simple fact. It's just that I will not agree that any of them are professional, and neither is the camera that took your image, unless the photo isn't a fair represention of the camera's potential. You do get A LOT of bang for your buck these days, even great quality doesn't require professional equipment.
    Give me one reason why you aren't handling Vildhjarta's pictures please >_<

    The entire reason I even started playing video games was because I was too embarrassed about myself and I preferred to be away from physical contact with other people and play games like league of legends, tf2 or whatever happens to look fun on steam and so on.
    People think you are lying because you are extremely attractive, stunning actually. Your full cheeks (which are gorgeous) make you look happy and youthful, and will make you look young for much longer. Trust me, I had similar complaints about myself, including my size 40 hips on a 5"2 body, and I'd get similar replies from people. Eventually I had to accept that I didn't see myself the way that everyone else does, and worked very hard to change my attitude even if I still see nothing but flaws in the mirror. Biting my tongue when I received compliments eventually got me into the habit of acceptance, and reduced the frustrations from friends/family who hated me putting myself down (and turned off a lot of potential boyfriends). You're not going to simply stop feeling this way; you will have to work hard to combat these feelings.

    Body Dysmorphic Disorder, look it up. See someone about this.

    Out of curiosity, how old are you two? You look like you're a bit older than him, but that may just be the facial hair and the way the picture was taken.

    Finally, somebody confirming what we all (hopefully) already knew!

    Perhaps if I bump into them at some point, but until then, photographing concerts/for albums isn't my strong side. I'm much more for unplanned and scenery.

Not sure why he didn't get another ban; he basically picked up where he left off after his last one. I hate to see good and trusting people taken advantage of, so I'm going to give you +200 Internets. That should cover it.

    I agree. She wrote a very good, informative, and encouraging post. It's a shame it's wasted on a faker.

    Kirse - save that, I'm sure there's real people here who need to hear it

    Nah, I just comment. My last 2 image posts didn't get any comments outside of an RL friend that I didn't even know went here (lol), so I don't bother anymore

    I try not to be cliche but...well, I hate cameras so there are rarely any pictures taken of me unless I snap them myself!

    You look really attractive on the latter one, Dars!
    Don't let that smile be a stranger to your face.
