The video above is a short documentary film about faking a professional photographer. They have chosen an IT guy and tough him how to look and behave like a pro in one week only. He did not know much about photography, but they managed to teach him basics in technical and visual aspects of photography. One week later the “fake” photographer was asked to take some professional pictures of a wedding couple. How did he manage? Well… One thing is crucial: you can not be a professional photographer if you only know how to set the right exposure and how to achieve shallow or maximum depth of field. Being a pro is all about being in control with a situation and having a confidence in what you are doing. Experience is crucial – there is no chance to learn photography in a week.
