I never claimed to be a professional photographer (I barely can take a
non-out of focus/stable shot half the time).   I was only talking about
what I have observed in situations where I have had an opportunity to
observe how the pros did stuff compared to amateurs and in photography
burning film like no tomorrow once you have what might be a good shot to
get that "perfect" shot is something I have seen time and time again.   So
if you want to call my direct observations being a loose cannon be my
guest.   I will say it sure took a huge leap on someone's behalf to take
what I said as a claim that I was ever a professional photographer or even
claimed to be.
