"She just doesn't look like a photographer."
What I've gathered is that photographer = hipster.They wear vintage thrift store dresses, these shoes and the biggest, baddest glasses ever. They are likely to be a vegetarian or something similarly healthy. Photographers wear red lipstick (females, at least). Their pictures are insanely trendy and candid. They definitely use VSCO Cam and a faux-filmy grain edit. Lots of bokeh and blank stares.
In a classroom full of these really attractive, trendy people.. I just feel so completely NOT a photographer. Once while shooting a wedding, the mother of the bride asked to her friend "I wonder where the photographer is?" while I was standing just a couple feet ahead of her with my camera. I am 5'2". My clothes are simple. I tried a sock bun once and it looked absolutely ridiculous. I like pictures that are bright and happy and natural. I wish I could end this with a big ol' "I'M DIFFERENT AND I LOVE IT!" monologue or something of that effect.. maybe some day. I'm not sure what my point is in all of this, except to not judge a book by its cover? Something like that.
