You Might be a Photographer if.....

You spend more time prepping your camera gear than you do prepping your makeup

You care more about buying an underwater housing for your camera than a bathing suit for yourself

People call you the "paparazzi" and proceed to sing Lady Gaga to you

You constantly have a smudged makeup raccoon eye from hold a camera up to your face

You look at eyes in makeup ads to figure out how the models were lit

You get mad that the spot healing brush and liquefy tool does not exist in real life for use on your face

Comic Sans makes you shutter more than a horror movie

Your purse is your camera bag

You critique every magazine cover you see

You care more about the cover art on CD's than the music itself

Pop-up flash is your enemy

You take your friends photos from facebook and retouch them

You wish you could Photograph your own wedding

Your idea of a birthday gift is to Photoshop a friend's head into a movie poster

You recognize default fonts, actions, and brushes when used in advertising

Nikon vs. Canon is as big a deal as the Hatfields vs. the McCoys

Mac vs. PC is big a deal as Capulets vs. Montagues

You have multiple files with the same name at different stages of completion

You get more excited about a Wacom tablet than an IPad

Your daughters are going to be named; Helvetica, Ariel and Lorem Ipsum


If I thought more I could probably make a longer list but you have a go add to the list, let's see how long we can make this thing. :)

"You spend more time prepping your camera gear than you do prepping your makeup"


You're right. It takes me half a day to prep for an important shoot, yet I spend hardly any time powdering my facial hair. :D

I forgot to mention this very important one :D
A gorgeous woman with a digital SLR brushes by you — and you only notice her camera and what kind of lens she has.

... are able to take the picture you want in only one shot.
... you get angry whenever you see people walking around with a dslr, obviously not having a clue what they are doing, but thinking that their pictures will be good because they have a dslr.
... when you stop shooting the second people realize that you are taking pictures and start acting/posing for it.
... you buy a more expensive camera because you know that yours is not able to unleash your full potential.
... you hate the phrase "Yes, I am a photographer, too.".
... you know that it takes actual effort to take a good photo and that just pointing your smartphone at something mildly interesting won't do the trick.

You just bought six bricks of film and are worried that it might not last through the next two weeks.
