First up, let's clear up a small confusion you might be having: the difference between "being a photographer" and "owning a camera".
Not sure which category you fall into? Then take our easy quiz to find out.
When using your camera, do you:

b) Occasionally take the odd half-decent photo of something random, largely by accident.
If you answered mostly A then Congratulations! You're a photographer.
If you answered mostly B then, well, you know the rest ...
