In this case, I think the term "serious" is being misused. A better term would be "passionate," in that many of us who are not professionals but are nevertheless obsessed with photography, and want to create images with the maximum level of craft we are capable of. The vast majority of pictures are taken in a far more casual manner - not a damn thing wrong with that either.

Maybe seeing the word 'serious' and that you need a DSLR to do this thing is what bothers me, this saying only came into use in recent times and now everyone uses it, passionate in a more suitable word. I would say that I am a keen photographer as it takes second place with me, if I am out and about then I will photograph what I am seeing and doing,

I seldom go on an outting where photography is the prime objective.

That says a lot there.  If the prime objective is not photography, then you are not as serious as some are.   That is not a judgement statement on my part (NOT: "I'm better than you").  So dont read that into it.

I treat my photography much more different in that at least once a week, weather allowing, I am out with the goal nothing but photography.
