1.Your neck always hurts, thanks to the two kilos of camera hanging from it at all times.
2.The annoyance of someone walking in front of your epic shot to then do the whole "I'm-ducking-four-inches-down-so-you-couldn’t-possibly-see-me" move.
3.In your nightmares all you see are backlit photos.
4.Annoying the hell out of whoever you're with because you just have to stop to take a picture of that cool-looking leaf at a jaunty angle.
5.Having a crowd gather around you because you are lying on the floor, trying to the get the perfect close-up of said cool leaf.
6.The joy you feel when you can fix a problem because you shot in RAW.
7.That even you, an experienced photographer, sometimes fall victim to the "leaving-the-lens-cap-on" struggle.
8.Your entire body tenses up whenever one of your friends hands you their phone like, "Look at this pretty photo I took!"
9.Taking approximately 1,349,746 photos, only to deeply regret it when you have to sort through them all later.
10.The full-body shudder that accompanies hearing "Can you shoot this event? I will pay you in exposure and experience but not actual money."
11.You're a master of the Rule of Thirds. Serious pro.
12.A little piece of you dies inside each time you see anyone shooting video on their phone vertically.
13.Your camera is a scrapbook of everywhere you've been – especially when the body has glitter, dirt, and other unknown remnants stuck to it from your many adventures.
14.Just holding down the shutter button and hoping for the best.
