This week on PostSecret, there were several postcards about photography.

It reads:

I will judge you if you always shoot your fancy DSLR on auto.

My problem with people with fancy DSLRs goes even deeper than that secret. I’ll never forget the day when Matt Strebe pointed at one of my photos and said, “You can’t take a photo like that with a snappy cam.” I laughed at him and said, “Dude! I took that picture with my IPHONE!”

The next secret is EXACTLY how I feel:

It reads:

Photography taught me to see beauty.

This last postcard broke my heart:

It reads:

When you tried to teach me the technicalities, you killed my love for photography.

Don’t let someone ruin your love of photography. You can take gorgeous photos with ANY camera. I’ve talked about this before.
