This Photographer Took The Most Hilarious Beard Photo Series I've Ever Seen owner Lee Morris recently decided to shave his 5 month beard while having a little fun. Lee created 8 different "characters" with different lengths of facial hair and then released his unretouched images to the These photographers took these files and pushed them to the max, creating 8 hilarious final images.

Patrick Hall photographed all 8 of these images using 3 Profoto B1 strobes and 3 strip boxes. The background was solid white and was then "cut out" in Photoshop afterwards by each of photographers listed below.

Lee Morris's picture

No doubt some of the other entries are funnier. I was trying to chose a group of photos that worked well together as a whole.

The tittle to this post is very... (i don't know how to best describe it, but i think it refers to idiots?)
The photos and the editing are great!

Lee Morris's picture

Haha click baity?

Stefanos infinity's picture

Most definitely not!

This title refers to "this photographer" in here, who everyone knows who you are, in a way that suggest something... i don't get?
Maybe it's my English?

It kind of reminds me the type of posts on facebook from third parties, that tries lure you somewhere...
I don't know, maybe it's just me.

Lee Morris's picture

No no, you're right. It's written to appeal to people who don't know what Fstoppers is but may still enjoy it.

Stefanos infinity's picture

Ok, Lee! Thanks for clarifying! Cheers!

It doesn't bother me as click baity, but it is interesting that as a website you now have to write a title that works best for a viewer/reader who is being sent a link rather than a regular visitor of the blog. I read the site a couple times a week so the title struck me as odd as well knowing who you are and seeing many of your other articles here.
