Every day, everywhere and anywhere across the internet thousands of unskilled, unknowledgeable, untalented, naive and unthinking "photographers" with their newly acquired "professional" equipment are crying out on the internet, because they are too lazy and/or too arrogant and in awe of their own newly discovered artisitc self importance, to actually do any real research for themselves: "I have had my camera a couple of months now, and want to take the next step. How do I turn pro, and earn money from my "art"?"
