Just a random insert:

This article got it all... it's something that I would definitely encourage people to read up on. It's not just in the field of photography but it applies to various fields of work as well.

I'm always amazed that some people I talked to think that photography is something that is extremely easy to do, earns you sh*tloads of moolas and thus able afford all the luxuries of the world.... :)
If you come to think of it.. it's "just pressing that shutter button" on your big arse dSLR with your expensive looking lenses and viola! an awardwinning photo. *raised eyebrows here*
That's akin to telling the doctor or consultant that for a less-than-5-mins of consultation, I have to pay X amount of money for things I already know from common sense!

Of coz I don't expect anyone to understand the business unless you are in the business itself but this article really put a lot of things into perspective and yes, there's a lot of elements we look into, not just those mentioned.

Maybe we photographers made it look too easy :p

Photography isss toughhhhh!! It is total rocket science to me. Thankfully, I am able to appreciate guys like you who make it seem so effortless! Like every intricate skill, the better you are, the easier it looks! Maybe you should pretend pretend a bit and make it look as difficult as it really is. ha!

Obviously the person who says that have not try it!

Yes, photography can be as easy as pressing the button... But great photography requires more than that!!!!

Come on, if it was as easy as that... Anyone of us would have got lots of award wining photos -
do we??!?! Of course not! I can't even see one, in all my photos, that come close to competition level!

Sometimes I still scratch and shake my head as I compare my photos and yours and can see the whole lot of difference, despite it's the same subject!!! Haiz...
