As someone who is just starting
out shooting family, graduation and
wedding photos, I am always looking for inspiration.
But, well...let's just say that these are NOT
the photographers to emulate.
Try to put your subjects in flattering surroundings...
The family that makes calls together stays together?
Try to have your families a wee bit more comfortable than these
poor folks. They look like they just had a tussle...is that
when Mom lost her left shoe?
Okay now. Can we at least try NOT to shoot the kids
while they are picking their noses?
It helps not to snap while the groom is bored...
Did she forget deodorant?
Even the dog looks depressed.
Um...well...props work but maybe not THIS one.
Let's see how many people we can squeeze into a small
camera frame! Grandpa does NOT look happy.
If any of you can come up with one good reason why
someone would wish to be photographed like this...please send it to me!
Now I love a good sepia or black and white photo but this is
not. Good that is. These people need meds. Lots of meds.
Okay. Consider your background yes but how about
the FOREground as well!
Well, it's a look.
Aw come on Fred. You are going to have to pay the photographer
whether you smile or not...might as well...oh never mind.
No. This is wrong on so many levels.
Once again...BACKGROUNDS can make or break a photo!
I get what they were going for but this just creeps me out.
And for the love of all things proper, please wear
clothing in wedding photos! PLEASE!
Do they know he is there? Do they? Do they care?
Just anther family photo shoot that includes a opossum.
Matching clothing can look cute...I said CAN.
I said OPEN your eyes darn it! OPEN!
I have started doing prom shoots but have yet to do any with
I get arty...I get it. This I do NOT get.
She got to it in the big chair.
When I told you you COULD wear costumes I thought you would all
be in the SAME sort of dress...pick a theme people!
Well, they ARE patriotic.
Your guess is as good as mine.
Your Aunt Edna expects her living room slipcovers back by 7pm pronto.
My. Oh my.
Love to you all and happy photo taking!
