We walked into one local camera shop one day and had a nice talk with one photographer who is working there. At one point of our conversation, my husband said to Dave, “We are amateurs, not professionals.”
Dave looked at us and said, “Well, it depends on how you define professional-photographer. Have you made any money with your photo?”
Knowing what he’d implied, I quickly said, “Ah, in that case, I am a professional, but my husband is not.” (Ha ha ha… W definitely is a better photographer between the two of us. He is a perfectionist; I am an experimentalist.)
Dave questioned me with his eyes.
“I didn’t lie. I made 25 cents. Someone had downloaded my photo from a stock photo website, so I earned 25 cents,” I said. Actually, 3 or 4 photos were downloaded, which added up to, maybe, a dollar. But who cares about those minor details.
(I haven’t uploaded any photo to that website for a long time… too busy for other fun things.)
Dave laughed. From the sound of his laughing, I knew he knew exactly how professional I am ;-). I laughed with him.
