When I bought an SLR camera I thought it would make me look cool and give me cred and not-- as I realised upon arrival in the tourist trough of Paris--like only one of many turbo idiots who don't know how to use their expensive equipment.
So it was with great anxiety that I approached this babe who, by virtue of working at a fashion camera store, is an expert at smelling camera related fronting. Then the pictures kept coming out blurry and dark and crappy and I had surpassed the appropriate length of a stranger taking your picture photo shoot so I broke down and asked him why it wasn't working:
Me: (in an approximation of portuguese): this is not photo working! why for bad photo?!?
Cuteboy: (in perfect english) yeah, your hand is covering the flash.
GAH! Why I am not learning play it cool?
