Last week I published an article at Lynda.com about photography etiquette, which I framed around an experience I had where a photographer stepped into my frame. In it, I talked to Nicole S. Young, who related the tale of when her husband accidentally bumped her tripod during a long exposure.
Well today her husband, Brian Matiash, writes about a different sort of bad etiquette—interacting with jerk photographers.
I really could have used a 3-stop filter, so I walked over to the elderly photographer and asked him if he had a 3-stop ND filter that I could use for 2-3 photos. It wouldn’t have taken more than 3 minutes tops. He looks at me, looks down at my camera, and asks:
Will this be used in any commercial publication?
Go read the whole thing. And don’t be a jerk out there!
