It’s amazing just how different things can seem when taken out of context. I turned the TV to hear an American voice saying this:
“When shooting people it’s important to have the right conditions.”
I was in the kitchen making breakfast and couldn’t see the screen, but was already wondering what kind of psychopath they’d allowed on TV.
“Problems can be eliminated…”
I couldn’t believe what I was hearing and walked over to where I could see the screen…shooting; eliminated; what???
“…by using the correct aperture and shutter speeds for the conditions.”
In the UK, we don’t shoot people, we take pictures. Shooting people usually implies death or serious injury. It did give me a good laugh afterwards, though. Had I turned on the TV a few seconds earlier or later I wouldn’t have had that laugh.
