You're picking out a smiley face emoji, and you disregard three of them because their camera smiles, and their eyes aren't involved!

Feel free to add to the list!

You can't sit through a movie without questioning the damn hair-light which magically moves room to room.

When you're watching a prerecorded TV program you keep hitting the rewind button to have a better look at the bokeh.

You actually notice anything regarding the quality of the images.

I'm pretty sure most normal folks can't see a difference between an 8mm recording played on a tube TV and the latest hi-def HDR killer source played on the best possible screen...

Your camera gets stolen or broken and you have a genuie physical reaction....

Sort of like the one you just had imagining it just happened to you!

you're watching something on tv .. just some random show .. or a utube video .. and there's a shot of a photographer with a camera .. you rewind to get a better look at the equipment .. maybe several times .. what lens what camera etc etc .. can't help myself .. ;)

You find yourself critiquing the photography in the hotel you are staying at.

The one I'm in right now has some shots downstairs of buildings in Cleveland Akron that show some creative framing I'll be keeping in mind.
