Reasons Not to Date a Photographer

Saturday, December 31, 2011
Found this through my interwebz friend Momo of Tabetic Zombie, these are the ones that are me. The original list can be found here, at Not A Starving Artist.

  • They rather hold their bulky camera, than hold hands with you.
  • They like to sit in obscure coffee shop and voyeuristically watch people for great lengths of time.
  • If you’re taking a walk outside and you come across some “interesting light” they will make you sit/stand/pose in public so that they can take a photo.
  • You’ll wait longer for them to finish analyzing art in a museum than you’ll wait at the dmv.
  • Same goes with old used bookstores.
  • Or they are actually using you to not look so creepy as they people watch everything going on around you.
  • You can’t take a photo with them without taking at least five more.
  • They spend all their time on the computer (and not for porn.) 
  • They still use film cameras. 
  • They’ll be fussy over the position of a common household object, like a coffee cup.
  • They like watching old films that you’ve never heard or will ever understand.
  • They like looking at weird things in general.
  • Instead of having penis-envy, they have camera-gear-envy.
  • Everything is watermarked.
  • They want to color correct a lot of scenes from Twilight and Jersey Shore.
  • They like trespassing into old abandoned buildings filled with health hazards.
  • They always want to show a new photo they took, but don’t really care if you like it or not.
  • Bright, sunny days make them sad, but cloudy, overcast days are apparently great!
  • They’ll take you into places that have “culture” as well a high chance of getting mugged.
  • You can’t go anywhere new without them stopping to take a photo of everything and anything.
  • Bringing their camera means, bringing 50lbs of equipment.
  • They are natural hoarders, collecting and keeping piles of old newspapers, packaging, magazines, and other things that “inspire” them.
  • They are weird and geeky.
  • They have hard drives of photos, but probably have printed 10 images. 
  • If you’re ever in auto mode, they laugh at you.
  • They orgasm every time they learn a new lighting technique.
