You Are Not A Photographer

Pointed out to me by local actual photographer Paul D’Andrea (good guy, that Paul, and a damn fine shooter), is this Tumblr: You Are Not A Photographer. It’s apparently a collection of awful photos with running commentary from the female cast of Gilligan’s Island. About photos taken by people who should not be allowed to call themselves photographers. In the modern world where even a cheap DSLR can take good pictures, we’ve been seeing a massive inflation of the number of people who are “photographers,” leading to oft-criticized things like visual overload in our culture and the devaluing of professional photography as a career.

Still, the Tumblr is funny as hell. Good find.
