10 ways to tell if you’re a photographer

  • You know what aperture-priority means.

  • You’ve crawled on the ground to get a shot of something rusty.
  • Your camera equipment is worth more than your car.

  • Your family doesn’t recognize you without a camera covering your face.
  • You have thousands of pictures and you’re not in any of them.
  • You’ve been up before dawn or out in the freezing cold or even done something semi-dangerous… all for a photograph.
