Captain save-O-TAP to the rescue
I think this is some nice artsy pp.
If OTAP complimented me while I compile my pile of shit, I wouldn't be where I am today.
I love the lens flare. That really sets it off.
If OT would have told me my pictures were awesome, I wouldn't have this heap of Nikon gear and not know what to do with it.
Mother fucking WORD!!!!
You can go two ways from the hazing of OTAP. You can be a whiny bitch about it and not take the advice that is given by more experience people, or you can take the advice and learn from the mistakes and get better.
Look at my posts in 06-07. They were fucking terrible, and i got ripped apart. But never once was i like, "oh shit fuck you guys, my work is good, im awesome and i know it." or made any excuses like "Well i have only had this gear for a couple months, and im not a pro like you guys "
Rather i said thank you for the advice and critique ill try to do better next time, and took everyone suggestions and tried again. And then rinse and repeat. 09 is here, and im still not all that good, but im consistent. And now i make a great salary and pull lots of work, ultimately due to OTAP and the determination to keep on plugging away to get better. Did you know i schedule 3 hours of my day looking for a fresh and great new photographer, and then dissect their lighting, or composition. Not to copy them but to put it in my head, so i can have that little piece of knowledge. And make myself think, why did they choose that, hmmm what would i have done. That way, im constantly thinking of different situations, that way if that problem ever arises i can think back.
Do i ever think im going to be world famous? Probably not, but i think i can settle with making a great salary while waking up every morning, Thanking god for what i have and live a happy life.
OTAP /= elitest
Most OTAP = people who are honestly trying to help you, but in a tough way, just like every art teacher i have ever had. Hell, my first art teach at Ringling School of Art and Design, brought 10 students to tears on their first critique.
Some OTAP = OT, so get used to it.
Check your PMs!
