It just means some of us here have a more technical background than others here. (Some of us are working pros as well).

Anyone can buy a digital SLR these days and call themselves a Pro. That's why a lot of professional wedding photographers left the business, because prices went down through the floor.

I'm proud of the two years I spent in college studying Commercial Photography, it wasn't wasted time and it earned me 12 years of work in the professional photo industry after I graduated.

You can pooh-pooh it all you want, but for me, it was an amazing time of my life that I'd gladly repeat if I could. And that I was able to do it during the film era makes it even more meaningful for me as film still represents the purest form of photography there is (seeing those guys out there with the 8x10 view cameras on a tripod never ceases to blow me away).

Well said...!
