Apparently, if you want to get anywhere in the photo industry, you must only take "vintage" pictures of a skinny girl in converse, flowers, converse, two emo boys kissing, more converse, a self portrait with terrible angles or a decrepit unused building.
Did i forget something? Ahh yes...more converse! Add some stars/hearts and song lyrics by dashboard confessional to really give it some oomph.
Now just put them on your myspace or deviantart and watch the compliments roll in! Now all you have to do is wait for some business moguls to spot your obvious talent and hire you straightaway. Because you so are a 'photographer'.
"Ooh, look! Here's one of him lying on the tracks! And he's even put a heart and sparkles in the corner!"
"Soooo deep and artistic!" *nods*
Feel free to copy the following paragraph and put it on as many emo/scene/myspace pages you can find who commit said atrocity:
In real life, turning up the exposure on a portrait so much you barely see the person's features anymore is not advised in photography. Really, you're not supposed to do it. You're not a photographer! Get over it!
ps: sorry for stressing the ugly flowers so much.
pps: it's just that they really do only take pictures of ugly flowers!
ppps: sorry, again.
of a journal or story. If you're new to photography, especially DSLRs, it's a good idea to take a look at some books from Amazon.com or other large book venders.
