Never diss a photographer

A photographer is invited to a friend’s house for a dinner party. She brings some of her new photos to share. The host looks at the photographs and exclaims, “These are wonderful! You must have a really great camera!” The photographer simply says “thank you,” and the evening continues.

After dinner, the photographer turns to her host and exclaims, “The food was wonderful! You must own some very good pots and pans!”


We might have some good tools to work with, but *we* are the ones using those tools with skill to make those pretty pictures! 🙂

  1. I never thought of it that way and i said that so many times, I’m embarrassed. I guess I must of insulted people when I said what a great camera they must have to get such great shots. Even though this was meant as humor, you’re right, photographers are the ones who make the pictures look good (or bad!), depending on how well (or badly!) the “tools” are used!
