@PassionatePhotoLady: Read it how you wish, as did I. I took her comment to be offensive, even when I read it to a collegue, they did as well. We all interpret differently. If it was your post and someone stated that is wedding board, not a photography board, to go elsewhere, how would you take it. Especially when their own post, were not all wedding related. If I were rude, then I apologize, but I took the comment in a different way, as it was typed out, with no emotion, rather than how a conversation would be face to face. Ever read a text from a friend the wrong way until something was cleared up? Same thing.
ABout the flack about being a photographer, so be it. I am not a photographer, but basically teaching myself. As do most. We all have to start somewhere, which is why I was posting a question, for whomever wanted to answer it, whether beginner or expert. I took pictures for some friends, a lady that owns a school, saw my pictures and wanted to hire me for the afternoon. I was only going to charge for my time, not the pictures, as my “name” will not be on them.
AND, I figured, if everyone else on here can write about, sex, love, divorce, christmas, rock n roll, cooking, anorexia, careers, what they ate last night, what they threw up last night and what not, then I figured I could ask about a photography question. It’s as simple as that. End of story.
Thank you for all that did comment. I appreciate the responses. If I was rude to @mariematt: then my apologizes. But I will speak my mind, just as she and others did.
