There’s an Internet meme called “Sh*t People Say” that has been spreading around the web like crazy recently, sparked by a new YouTube web series called “Sh*t Girls Say“. Here’s the photographer’s version.
Ahaha. “I was thinking about starting a project on homeless people”. So many, so many…
I have never heard anyone say, “I think I’m gonna c-41 process my slide film” its cross process get it right! also a few of those were funny.
I’ve said about 40% of the stuff on this. Sigh.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnxtdT_wQsI This is the first one
The B&H comment made me laugh out loud!!! Ive needed to order something when I couldn’t during the holiday!
yeah man, what’s up with the magenta, it’s always magenta!
I’ve only said about 10% of these. That makes me feel better about myself.
What, nothing about 365 projects or 52 week projects?
Ok. 1-It really wasn’t that funny. And 2, for photographers, an extreme lack of creativity. Who would of thought all those hipsters would do something so mainstream?
No mention of Chromatic Aberration aka CA or did I miss it. I work in a camera shop so this type of thing is common. More common unfortunately is the question “I am about to shoot my first wedding can you set my camera for me?”
Seriously? Nobody said the most “dropped” term in photography? BOKEH? What about MWAC’s or “I only shoot natural light.” You guys could do better.
“This is why I charge $4000 for wedding shoots…First I need to get paid for….blah blah blah”
You can tell the video was done by photographers because the audio and video aspect were terrible….
You don’t say bokeh, you just do it.
This is Sh*t Photographers say not Sh*t Photo Retail Customers Say. There is an enormous difference.
Not exactly as commonly talked about as you’d imagine in the professional field… feel free to make your own video if you have better ideas.
lol, B&H on holiday again. So true.
A video about photography without Vivian Maier being mentioned at least a couple of times?
Shit Photographers say: “… I don’t get paid enough money!”
Really! I don’t! ;)
no one said “say cheese”
I’ve been a professional photographer for 18 years and MWAC is a term I hear people complain about plenty. And every newbie loves to use the term bokeh. And, I’ll make sure to post our video once it’s done. You guys did cover a lot of the “hipster” terms like Holga, Leica, film etc. This video seems to have been made for a sub genre of photographers.
Sounds like somebody might be a little offended by criticism. Your video is good and you guys have the pieces. I think you could have executed it better. I forwarded it to a bunch of my photographer buddies (all full-time professionals) and they didn’t see as much humor as they anticipated.
I concur. I have been shooting over 30 years, have said it all and heard it all. This was phoned-in. What happened to the traditional process of pre-production, writing the script and rehearsing? S#!t Girls say IS funny. This photographer’s S$!T barely smells a little weird. There is an art to this and it is in the writing. I take issue with the thin veneer of pretense given the the photographer’s mind set. Though we photographers come from a dark mix of Weegee, Arbus, and ManRay these inexperienced hipsters are just lazy students being critical. I do miss my Nikon F3hp….I do not miss paying $225 to have my fixer hauled.
Thanks, I totally missed that in the title.
It’s good to know my position working retail store somehow makes anything I say null and void? Not like I would overhear or actually speak with photographers of all levels, working in a camera store. I didn’t realize this was Sh*t That Photographers say outside of retail locations.
I will give you that there is certainly a distinct difference between pro photographers, amateur photographers, and the person that takes snapshots. However they are in my opinion all photographers just of differing skill levels and talents.
this isn’t shit photogs say, this is shit hipsters with cameras say.
They should use the comments in this list…. some of the responses are just as accurate.
LOL @ the “hipsters with cameras” comment…
Ive never said any other this stuff
c-41 is a kind of cross process so it’s ok
OK, that’s creepy. That girl looks like me… or how I looked about 3 years ago! Hair and the face. I also go on about how much I miss film, but I don’t really say the things here otherwise.
The quotes are more photo-enthusiasts than working photographers; and the one quote missing from this video is “Okay, 1, 2, 3, perfect! One more… 1, 2, 3, awesome!” But all in all, I LOL’d.
I was thinking that, too. We’d just call it cross-processing, but maybe they felt they needed to explain it to people watching the video.
I don’t know what bokeh or MWAC mean; never heard either before. “Made with absurd crassness?” “My white a** cheek?” LOL.
