12 Step Method to Bad Photography

1. Buy new camera
2. Take camera out of box in excited anticipation only to find out you must charge the battery first
3. Charge battery
4.  Point and shoot at everything in sight until you’ve loaded the memory card with a deluge of over/underexposed and out of focus pictures
5. Break down and read the PDF manual
6. Eyes glaze over while reading the PDF manual
7. Take aspirin for headache you got while reading PDF manual
8.  Give up on PDF manual and look for YouTube videos instead
9. Watch numerous YouTube videos until eyes glaze over
10. Decide to forget the how to videos and manual and just go the ‘fly by the seat of your pants’ method
11. Push numerous buttons and get lost in menu after menu until you have no idea how you got to where you are or how to get out
12. Feel like a total idiot because you can’t figure out how to use the damn camera

I haven’t felt this stupid since ninth grade algebra class!


  1. That's why my camera has a PhD button. Push here, du...er...Dearie

  2. Suddenly I'm reading about myself! lol.

  3. Hmmm... I think they still make Poloroids ;)
