78 Photography Rules For Complete Idiots

Yes, the rules are pretty basic, but 78 of them are hard to keep track of if you're a beginner ...or a complete idiot. Latvian photographer Ivars Gravlejs put them all in one place because he's seen every one of these rules broken too many times. Link -via the Presurfer

Just to clarify an "idiot" is someone who scores the same as a 7-year old on Weschler's Scale of Intelligence (old version). It is an indication of a cognitive impairment and not willed act. The term should never be used with an air of approval or disapproval. IMHO the way the term is colloquially used is a complete falshood and misrepresentation of reality borne out of the egotistical desire to feel superior. Again, just my humble opinion. I also think it is egotistically satisfying to be able to sit back and say "What an idiot!" and laugh at someone else and so provides the basis for much popular entertainment. The same wouldn't fly if the targets were "mentally handicapped" it's only when we can project idiocy as a willful act that we can justify our derision.
