    Default Bushcraft vs Bushcraft Photography

    first off let me say that i enjoy a good picture as much as the next guy and can appreciate the effort that gets put into it. with that said and with the rise of more amateur/hobbyists and self proclaimed professionals i have heard and seen alot of guys posting (or not posting) and asking forgiveness for their "crappy pics" or "phone pics".So i just wanna say get out there and take pics -make something or do something and take a crappy pic and share.This is not photoUSA it's BushcraftUSA.If you make a spoon and it looks like a butterknife ,who cares take a pic and share and have a laugh.Never be ashamed of trying anything and sharing what you did wrong or what you have learned or how the light reflected in your pic.the emphasis is just about doing.I also totally understand how a vendor may need great photos to sell their product and i also understand the photographer using their skills but thats what they do -you do your own job the rest of the week -have fun here -go take a phone pic

    What is Bushcraft Photography? Ehh?? Ya Canoodian.


    That and you dont need a top of the line dslr blah blah blah if you do want to take some better pictures. My last camera I got used for $45, and the one that I use now I got used for $175 if I remember correctly... And when I did not have internet, I used my cell phone.

    So, what I'm saying is I agree. If you want to take some great photos and post them, awesome. If you take crappy photos, thats great too. There are some photo snobs here but they enjoy crap photos of you outside doing stuff just as much as others. and how crappy could it be if its outside?

    I'm guilty of the crappy picture apology several times over. But this ^ is truly a life lesson for some and one worth learning for sure.

    Well said.
