A girl i know believes shes good at taking pictures. So she went and spent over $500 on digital backgrounds and crocheted items for her pictures or whatever. Yet shes constantly bitching that she cant feed her kids and that she has to go through the salvation army for christmas toys for her kids. She barely gets anybody that wants her to take their picture. The pictures are all bad quality and look like my 3 year old took them. Its a complete waste or money and its leaving her kids hungry. I do not understand people like her. Its just pathetic.

End vent

And now she'll learn from it.

I had that same dream...had to leave it in the past because I can't afford to pursue it at this time professionally speaking. Sounds like she should do the same and just keep it as a hobby until she can afford it.

I'm a big believer in giving people the benefit thinking that
They are trying to figure out how to change their lives.

 I wish i could with her but shes been this way her whole life. She expects people to pay for stuff for her and her children and any extra money she has she spends on herself.

 she acts like she thinks shes a professional at it and that its her career or something. she even tells people she went to college for it and she didnt.

She probably does. I know several people who are charging clients for the shittiest photography I've ever seen. I always cringe. I can't imagine charging someone for something I wouldn't pay for myself.
