    Just a little translation help for craigslist ads:

    When the photographer's ad says:
    "$500 and under!"
    the photographer means:
    "I'm not a photographer, but my mom bought me a Digital Rebel!"

    When the photographer's ad says:
    "building portfolio"
    the photographer means:
    "I've shot less than 5 events, but I'm hoping you don't know the difference and hire me anyways"

    When the photographer's ad says:
    "digital negatives! don't pay for prints!"
    the photographer means:
    "print your WEDDING photos at Walmart like I did. save a few dollars!"

    When the photographer's ad says:
    "artistic images"
    the photographer means:
    "I got carried away in photoshop - A LOT - hope you like green skin"

    When the photographer's ad says:
    "I'll hand your images to you on disk at the wedding"
    the photographer means:
    "I have no photoshop skill so please take this disk before I try to become 'artistic'"

    Be careful getting your wedding photographer for $500 from Craigslist - seriously ok? Buy a couch from Craigslist. look for a part time job on craigslist - but do you really want to hire your wedding photographer with the same service you can give away your old clothes?

    Lol, I got my first paid gig on Craigslist. Wasn't advertising that I was a wedding photographer. I just posted saying I was a noob looking for a few extra $.

    I always love the ones looking for "fit nude models" to "build portfolio" what they really mean is I've never seen a real girl naked.....
