I’ve been doing a bit of research for an upcoming video about online dating and came across this article. Here’s a quote:
“Nice Girls Will Wait For You To Email First
First of all, nice girls don’t make the first move. I don’t know why, but it’s true. When/if you get an unsolicited email from a girl, they almost always reek of desperation, and in my experience, they aren’t much in the looks department. “
Granted, this IS an article from askmen.com and the majority of the article is pretty benign, but I’m still pissed. Its shit like this that keep peoples expectations stupid. Why in the FUCKING BALLS can’t a lady send the first message without coming across as “desperate”? My happening upon your profile and taking the initiative to message you first instead of… what? Waiting for the universe to get you to notice me? Thats just dumb. Fuck off guy who wrote this. Fuck off hard.
I preface this by stating that I really hope I’m wrong. I hope that I either misunderstood what I have been told, or that I was deliberately or accidentally provided with misinformation. In any case, this is a post about why we both should and shouldn’t be worried about YouTube, as creators and…

To be honest, I am not the right person to answer this question.
As much as I love photography I am so far from techy and/or on top of the latest gear, its sad. I bought my last body two years ago and that was the last time I did any research on cameras.
I would go to amazon, search digital cameras, then start clicking off what you want on the side. Do you want to learn about manual functions? Detachable lenses? Do you have brand loyalty? Do you have a budget?
If you don’t know what something means, look it up. At the very bottom on the right hand side pick 4 star reviews and up. Then see what camera looks best for you, read reviews.
I also recommend going to a best buy or what have you and trying out cameras until one feels right… then buying it online.
