Hippocratic Oath for Photographers, written in 1937 by a photography teacher tired of his students bringing him monkey see, monkey do.

Oh, I like this a lot.

That's cute. We were given a similar list of "you think these are original but they are not" before our first film project in college.

Why take an oath I've already broken a dozen ways and a hundred times?

I suggest substituting the word 'submit' for the word 'take'.

I'll take a picture of what I want.

So what were they allowed to photograph, and how long until their original ideas were met with the comment: a 5 year old could have taken that picture. Because cynics. ;)

A number of photographers prefer the term 'make' to 'take'.

I'll never be a douche on an internet forum when I really am in no place to even consider myself a photographer.

ronok, good for you but that never seems to stop many other people. ;)

Gravdigr 09-16-2017 02:35 PM

It don't stop me.:jig:
