Photographer's Math adds up to laughs

Photographer's Math

A shutterbug friend once told me photographers cannot do math to save their lives. The only algorithms they can churn out are shutter speed ratio and aperture ratios, or the required resolution for different print sizes. However, blog site Photographer's Math may just prove my friend wrong.

What is the equation for a nature photographer? The writer of this blog thinks it's a hunter minus the guns, plus lenses. A monopod is conveniently seen as a tripod divided by three. Paparazzi equals a portrait photographer minus consent.

This blog, updated daily, provides much laughter (if you are a photographer), but some posts actually do make sense. To salvage an important shot, convert the image to black and white and add some vignette effects to make it look artistic. How many of us have tried that? I confess I have.
