It always bothers me when photo news outlets use words like “unleash” to announce the arrival of a new camera. It is especially annoying when this is for a new point-and-shoot: Canon unleashes new PowerShot Elph models! Are you ready for this? You’re not ready! You can’t possibly be ready for new $200 point-and-shoots!

Not only can this be confusing, but it can also lead one to place emphasis on the wrong aspect of the job, or doubt one’s abilities altogether. So here’s a list of some of the common lies we tell ourselves when trying to work out why our photography career isn’t going as swimmingly as we’d like. Continue Reading
