    Very Cool Pro Shoot With Z7 and Z6

    I belong to a few pages on Facebook that focus on the Z cameras. Yesterday Al Powers, a pro photographer, posted some very cool shots from a job he had.

    He was one of the Photographers at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. The only cameras he used were Z Series. He explained that he used the Z 7 on the red carpet and the Z 6 for the show. I was really impressed with the shots. I guess it was particularly special since I had wasted about 5 mins of my life watching the Angry Photographer talk about what a professional camera was and how NO pro would ever use the Z Series JUNK...

    If you are interested in seeing the photos I found the link to his Images page. I just was very impressed with the photos. The red carpet stuff was so so, but the show shots were pretty cool. I found them at about photo group 250 and found that you can skip to there using the pull-down menu.

    You are right... But every now and then I will succumb to the bait. Yesterday it was "What Makes a Pro Camera." I know I should have just kept scrolling but...

    I've been drawn in myself, and more than once if I'm totally honest about it. His ceaseless self-aggrandizement and pablum spewing somehow combine in a morbidly fascinating sort of way. Much like a train wreck: it's horrific to watch but you just can't seem to close your eyes.

    Is he actually a photographer? I haven't seen anything he's done.
    He's also been accused of stealing other peoples work. http://www.chuckjines.com/the-angry-...-peoples-work/

    I really do not know. I just think he is one of those sad folks that cannot admit that they are wrong or not necessarily in the know. Now he has made so much negative noise he will never be able to turn it around. Kind of have to feel sorry for folks like that.

    Yeah, nobody knows better about what makes a pro camera than some random, arrogant, uninspired cretin on Youtube whose channel is moderately well-known at best, photography skills are less than mediocre and has most likely never made a cent off their photos.

    Maybe but that would mean he's self-aware and if he was he'd probably see how much of a joke he is and change accordingly.

    Or you're right and he's just too angry to think straight. :P

    Self-awareness is a curse. More people should be cursed with it.
