Amateurs vs. Professionals

This week our class is thinking about the pros and cons of amateur vs. professional digital content. I found this goofy video on YouTube where about 50% of the dialogue is from Craigslist ads (according to the creator), highlighting some differences in amateur vs. professional thinking about photography. Do you think amateurs in any field are likely to put so much emphasis on equipment? And why does the professional think experience counts for so much?

    As a student who was trained in my undergraduate stage of photograph, I personally believe that experience is really critical to the professonal, because the skills could not be well learned just from the textbook, but from the practice in reality. In the end, I have forgotten all the theories from the book, but still owns the feelings accumulated from four years’ practice.
