The typical subjects of their photographs include, but are not limited to: pidgeon-toed girls in Converse that have been drawn on with ballpoint pens and/or Sharpies, flowers/weeds growing out of cracks in sidewalks, juxtapositions of objects that typically don't go together (in one such case, a Queen of Hearts playing card on a cracked sidewalk), a girl who looks like something out of an American Apparel ad smoking a cigarette, decaying buildings, and just about anything that looks "vintage" (ie, yellowing washing machines in a laundromat).
"These photos represent the irony of life," she said.
"And you represent the bane of modern photography," David replied.
Not all photographers are scene or emo kids and not all rely heavily on photoshop or any other photo editing software (such as GIMP, Lightroom, photobucket, etc) to make their photos look unique.
Some photographers actually are photographers, not just "What just about every scene kid and hipster under the age of 25 calls themselves these days.". Some actually shoot photographs for a purpose rather than because it is the "cool" thing to do at the moment. Some great photographers are Ansel Adams, Diane Arbus, Les Forrester, Lara Jade, Andrew Gransden, Joe Rosenthal, Jill Greenberg, and Annie Leibovitz.
A photographer may stick to one subject area, such as portraiture or nature strictly, but quite a few usually spread their subject areas among many different kinds of photography, such as nature, portraiture, still life...

Photographer should define to individuals using cameras who are dedicated, show some level of skill, talent, or expertise, and usually persist in taking pictures for extended periods of their life.
Buy a piano you aren't automatically a pianist.
Buy a plane and you aren't automatically a pilot.
Buy a camera and you're a photographer.
Dude, you're just a camera owner... take the lens cap off... you've got a long way to go before you're a real photographer.
People do call themselves photographers even though they take blurry, meaningless, photographs. These people ruin a great form of art. These people normally can not take critiques for their life, even when they ask for it.
Person 2: This is horrible! This has no meaning let alone any definition! You are no photographer.
Person 1: I'd love some feed back on my photography.
Person 2: First off, this picture is way to burry. I can't tell what's even in this picture. Also the light is extremely yellow, so I'm guessing this was taken inside at night.
Person 1: I'M A GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER!! MY MOM TELLS ME I'M THE BEST!!
Person 3: Lolz you asked for critique
