You can see there's a real know-how behind the pro stills compared to the amateur ones. Yes some of the amateur can look good, but it is simple point and shoot (oh this looks good: photo). The pro knows what he's looking for and how to achieve it. Could be the pros loose that genuine "oh this looks good" overtime, yes, it could be, but change it for something else.
I guess this is the kind of posts that made NFS go from #1 to not even top 5 in my reading list... What's the next one? "This is camera, this you make video".
I agree with you here, this is crap. I feel that in the last few months about 50% of articles in this site are written by V Renee who clearly doesn't have much idea about filmmaking. This is the conclusion I come to after seeing the sort of crap she keeps posting. A couple of days ago was the "using the fist as a lightmeter" malarkey, it just keeps getting better!
