True digi.
The last movie I saw was "The King's Speech". During the dialogue, I couldn't help but notice that when the speaker was talking to his left, he was framed on the left (and vice versa). That irritated me. I wanted to scream "bad crop. Give them room". Great movie but a moment of poor direction.

I also hate scenes when the actors are supposed to be sipping HOT drinks and you can tell the cups/glasses are empty or they would 1) be burning themselves, or 2) dumping the drinks down their fronts.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

You are a Photographer if....

You are watching a sunset with the one you love and he/she asks you what are you thinking about and you quickly respond, f8...1/250th...200 ISO.

It is what it is.

When telling someone how wide something is you use millimeters as your term of measurement

"If it's to good to be true best to shoot it again"

You are a Photographer if; You trip over a curb and make sure your body is the cushion between your camera and any hard surface. Been there....

In film school I had to write a script based on the original poem. What a weird poem it is too.

Made me never EVER want to watch the film. ;)

You pay more attention to the lighting, camera angles etc in movies/tv shows than the actual show itself.

You have done all of the above one time or another.:)

If you race home at twice the speed limit to get the battery you thought you had. :whistle: Just so you don't miss those lovely colors in the sunset.

I want a good wide angle lens and more money for photo trips.

In the days of film : And we have all done this at least once "in the good old days"

Shooting a "roll" of film and realising that you either did not put the film in the camera or that it did not wind onto the spool :angry:

IF you have a second refridgerator dedicated to keeping your film cold
if you can't leave for a family gathering without your camera, 4 lenses, and two flash units
everyone else in the family brings along their phone/camera while you have your DSLR and all of your gear

Remember to engage brain before putting mouth in gear
