So I talk a fair amount and realized that I sometimes say things that would ONLY have another photographer nodding their heads in agreement and other people calling the cops;

So here are some gems, what are yours?

I am going to make the kids run around like fools then shoot them

If you blow the bunnies it should be fine

If I track him i can shoot him

She needs to do a chicken neck

I would do do Robbie Williams

If you hump it on the bag, it should stay still

Rapid fire works best on kids

The first and last should be used sparingly when within range of child protective services. :)

My husband and I were out in the middle of the street in our neighborhood. I was thinking of a chalk photo, but it was noon and the lighting was nasty. I was giving up and he started yelling:

"flash me, flash me, flash me!!"

I shot a girl last week on the railroad tracks.

Is that RAW?
Let me shoot you?
Wow, that thing is impressive... 400mm you say?
Yes, I chimp.
That's a nice piece of glass.
DPChallenge... no... it has nothing to do with THAT... PERV!

Only a photographer would think a 40D is less impressive than a 5D.

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a lady about a photo shoot. I couldn't do it and we went our ways.

This past weekend, I was in the store where she works. I walked and said, "Hey, how ya doing? Did you and Rodney ever find anyone to shoot you?"

The little old lady buying something jerked her head up and I thought she was about to fall over. THAT was funny.

You know you're a photographer when it seems perfectly normal to see a beautiful young woman in a gorgeous wedding dress.........

.....Walk into a lake.

I am having trouble with models staying for a shoot as soon as I blurt out ... "Would you like to touch my Canon?"
Why would that be?

Only a photographer would tell the models... "No, you may not touch my Canon."

I only took 1,000 shots on my day trip to the zoo.

Most people gasp when they hear that number! :O

I wanna shoot you with my Canon. Just stay still

Hilarious thread!

"I'd like to shoot THAT"

I took 16 thousand pictures during the airshow (people always ask how many I took...The actual number was a few hundred over 16K but at that point...does it really matter?)

Wait, I have to put it in idiot mode (I said this and then realized I actually said it when handing it to a family member! NOT GOOD)
My arms hurt from holding my canon all day...
My Legs are killing me... I guess I am going to use the zoom lens from this point on.
