You know you're a photographer when...

You've been sleep deprived and you wake up look out your windows and its just not pretty enough so you try to edit it in your head..

...thats why weird way of dreaming.. is that normal? lol!

When you see everything at 24 frames per second. (or am I just stoned?)

When you say "I'm going to shoot the President" and wonder why people cringe (think photography, FBI...)

When your arms are exhausted from holding them out in front of you and "framing" your view.

When you spend more time at the camera club than you do at work and home combined.

When you spend all day in photography forums like Steve's Digicams! ;-)

When every time you call your child's name, he says, "but I don't want you to take my picture!"

Your cat covers its eyes when it sees the camera.

When at a party you say you spend the afternoon shooting ducks and they look at you funny... and you don't understand why. (actually happened to me.)

When you are watching TV and complain about highlights being blown out (My wife is now convinced I have gone off of the deep end).

When your spouse calls the forums at Steve's Digicams your porn site.

My collection of saved pictures from Iowa for Dean (covering and working, thank you) has pictures of a deer-damaged van (the deer died), the crazy French woman who ran around naked, and shots of pro photogs chimping.

If you know what chimping is.

If you chimp through the viewfinder.

If you've asked more than one random person if you can shoot them. (I just got one guy today..he had the greatest dreads i've ever seen and cool forearm tats)

some of my favorites...



You take a side in a Nikon vs. Cannon debate.


You enjoy walking into tiny Mom&Pop photo marts and asking to see a 1D (or D1H) and a 600mm f/4.


You have seen yourself chimping on SportsCenter.


You get email from friends and family that they too have seen you chimping on SportsCenter.


You sort your vacation photos into two piles - Peak Action and Feature.


When you look at model's eyes to see if the photographer used umbrellas or softbox.


When you have to show the Rebel soccer mom how your 1D shoots 8fps. (disclaimer - I haven't ACTUALLY done this!)


You laugh at fans in the stands when they use a flash, knowing it will never have enough reach. "YOU FOOLS! My Speedotrons laugh at you!"


When you smile your left eye squints more than your right.


you contribute to a list entitled "you know your a photo-geek when..."


You stay 3 hours at a football game and don't even know the score at the end.


When all of your camera equipment purchases are followed by the phrase: "Now all I need is...."


When you do a photo story on a town named Canon.( http://www.sportsshooter.com/kliles/canon)


When your friends name you "camera man" and you know it's a take-off of "cat lady."


When you're out playing basketball at the church on Thursday night and more than once you hear the remark, "You'd do better shooting your camera than the ball."






When you actually read all of these geek posts......

Congrats......
You're a Geek

...when you pay attention more to the print quality than the photography itself.

...when you read B&H Photo catalogs instead of books.

...you keep an electronic copy of your camera and flash manuals on your PC's at home and work and while your printed manuals are in your bag. :lol::lol::lol:

I reference my manual often for questions posed in the forums. :lol:
