Christian satire news site Babylon Bee recently posted an article mocking consumers who purchase expensive cameras. In the article titled Canon Now Including ‘Professional Photographer’ Certificate With All Cameras Costing At Least $599, Babylon Bee notes:
“If you spend at least $599 on a camera, you’re instantly transformed into a professional photographer, and now you have the documentation to prove it,” a Canon spokesperson said. “In a lot of professions, you have to take classes or practice for years before you truly become a professional, but not in photography. Just buy one of our budget to mid-range cameras, and you’re in.”
The Bee goes on to point out that the Professional Photographer certificate now entitles you to do things like, “Using the ‘sepia tone’ filter in Photoshop or Lightroom, Doing $50 shoots for friends and family[, and] Taking photos with prop ideas you found on Pinterest.”
While some of these digs may hit a little close to home in the enthusiast photography community, I found the article worth a laugh or two. Check out the complete article here on Babylon Bee.
