The Photographer Rap

Ira Lee and Thavius Beck wrote and performed the following song, The Photographer, which  pokes fun at photographers all the while giving us something we can all relate to. The lyrics, anecdotal and quip-like, are humorous looks into the mind of a many photographers, delivered in a perfectly rhythmic manner. Have a listen:

“The perfect shot will never be yours, unlike a painter you’re starting with something finished and working backwards.”

“Stabilize so that the bokeh pops, when it feels like the composition of real life is just a little bit off.”

“Craftsmanship. Steady on the banana. I’m not afraid to die If I can bring my camera.”
