When it comes to photos, I feel like an amateur, an aficionado, a devotee.

(3 commonly misused words)

  • amateur: From French ‘amateur’, from Latin ‘amātōr’ (“lover”), from ‘amāre’ (“to love”). A person attached to a particular pursuit, study, or science as to music or painting; especially one who cultivates any study or art, from taste or attachment.
