Every girl with a DSLR camera and Lightroom thinks they are a photographer....... oh did I say that?....
Meh i think anyone who loves capturing views is a photographer. Where is the line that says one person is one, and the other isnt? Even if it is just a hobby.
No real need to be more technical than that.
Everyone uses filters, even "professionals", dating back decades. Even cameras have filters built into them now just to give you the default picture.
i do use filters and such in lightroom, but its only to bring the photos out. sometimes the camera doesn't catch what the actual view was. As hawkman said, this is developing.
I don't really need people telling me im a noob for doing whatever i do, many people love my photos either way.
This girl seemed to use the ugly cheap white faded edges effects though
Anyways the thing that bothers me most about the pictures you posted (if bothers me at all) is that most of the subjects arent even centered. So if they frame the pictures they'll have two tiny poeple on the right side, with over half the picture being basically white space.
Good thing about the digital age is anyone can be a photographer, and there is no harm in that at all.
