But I hate the idea that equipment dictates if you're a pro or not. 
Granted the defendants proved how inedpt they were by not knowing how fast
their lens was, but the bad photos were the fault of the photographer...
someone who knew what they were doing could still have produced decent

Their other stupid move was telling the plaintiff that the prints were
developed at wal-mart (not to mention meeting them there).  I doubt the
plaintiff could have told the difference if they would have taken the time
to package them differently.

What's scarier is that these people have shot multiple weddings.  I see
posts in photography forums all the time about people with one camera
body, no clue how to use it shooting weddings (without a backup body)...
or how they accidentally left their CF/SD at home (who has just one?).

Makes me want to rush down to the DMV and offer all new drivers a job as
taxi drivers.
