      I dunno. Have you noticed the huge number of teenage girls with really expensive cameras who think that they’re photographers because of it?

        It’s definitely not just teenage girls. Also true of a lot of grown women I know who seem to think starting a photography business will be easy as pie. (except easier! Because hey, no baking.)

    The angle actually does help. Though it kills your back. ;)
    Every teenage girl nowadays thinks she’s a photographer and it’s all the rich teenage girls who think they’re photographers who get fancy cameras even if they can’t take a picture better than a 2 year old. ;)

    I think they mean the art graduate is working harder to get that good composition, whereas the tourist just points and shoots.

    taking a step backwards would ruin the perfect angle, the body angle actually does help in composition.
    As for tourist vs student, this is a horrible representation, because EVERYONE knows the art student would be shooting the bag on the ground
