The HDR conception is heavily misunderstood to those who use them in their android phones. "Huh, exposures, what do you mean?"

You willingly go shopping with the wife, just to see what kind of lighting the fashion guys are using this season.

You walk through Victorias Secret looking at the pictures of the models and instead of thinking "ooh, boobies", you're thinking, "ringflash, butterfly, rembrant, broad, clamshell, etc" as you analyze the lighting.

While watching movies, they constantly remind you of the "rule of thirds" and other methods used to compose a picture.

While the wife is looking at kitchen gadgets, you're finding ideas for DIY lighting gear, and you're both looking at the same stuff.

This is horribly true. My wifes favorite movie series is the Anne of Green Gables trilogy. I watched those with her recently and couldn't stop thinking about how the director of photography for that movie series was definitely a brilliant classical landscape photographer. It made me want to take a trip to Prince Edward Island.
