50 Reasons Not to Date a Photographer | From Tumblr

‪1.‬They rather hold their bulky camera, than hold hands with you.
‪2.‬On a romantic date, you’ll watch the sun go down and think “Wow this is gorgeous” and they’ll go “mirror lock, tripod, and stop down f/8 at 1/125.”
‪3.‬You’ll never be able to enjoy tv, movies, or magazines because they’ll point out all the visual flaws.
‪4.‬They like to sit in obscure coffee shop and voyeuristically watch people for great lengths of time.
‪5.‬If you’re taking a walk outside and you come across some “interesting light” they will make you sit/stand/pose in public so that they can take a photo.
‪6.‬You’ll never get to enjoy freshly cooked meals because they’ll spend 15 minutes taking 20 variations of the same dish with their iPhone.
‪7.‬They get angry when your friends go up to them and say “I am interested in photography, can you recommend a good camera for me? Nothing professional I just want to take pretty pictures.”
‪8.‬You’ll wait longer for them to finish analyzing art in a museum than you’ll wait at the dmv
‪9.‬Same goes with old used bookstores.
‪10.‬When you think they’re giving you their undivided attention, they’re really wondering how they could fix you with a little Clone Tool and Patch Tool.
