[Humor] What You May Look Like When Taking Pictures

[Humor] What You May Look Like When Taking Pictures

Let's hope this is not what you look like when taking pictures. Admit it, we've all been guilty of strange poses. I'm sure these shots are also making you wonder if there's a shot of you floating around depicting you in an odd pose. These shots really make it easy to laugh at ourselves as we sometimes see ourselves in their shoes, at least to a lesser degree.

I wonder how many photographers it takes to screw in a lightbulb

Dedication of stupidity? 

When the model agreed upon doing a 'nude shoot', I don't think this is what she had in mind. 

This pose helps stabilization, you should try it. 

He's going to blame the lack of autofocus points when it doesn't focus

He has a tailor on speed-dial

It's her way of being one with nature

I call this pose, the quadpod

I think I'm going to try to find one of me... :)

The 2nd image down. My TLR is so quiet that he had no idea I got this shot. Gotta love leaf shutter lenses :-)


Loving this! 

omg i laugh so hard looking at these

Hehe...these are great.  I particularly like the guy in the yellow jacket in the second but last shot.  I can't for the life of my understand why he's adopted this particular posture, unless it was purely for comedy effect, in which case it was a huge success! :)

You mean you don't do that? Yeah, me neither! lol

 if he had his legs further apart and his elbows tighter, this will actually be a very stable standing position. more stable than standing straight up.

that looks well and all but I don't think that's gonna help anyone... when you still have the lens cap on ;)

Guilty! Haha, awesome pics.

funny. theyre mostly asians haha.

guilty as charged. on all counts, even the one near the tree. i was out recently doing some street shooing and found myself shooting straight up a telephone/ light pole. as for the naked dude, i am innocent. strange thing is, i saw another guy like this doing a bikini shoot in the ocean. he may have been german. this guy was in a speedo with strobes and pocketwizards. strangest video i've ever seen. as weird as it was, the final images were pretty good. if i happen to run into the video again on youtube, i'll be sure to post the link on this post.

Keep Calm, Chive On.

I probably should not share this one for fear of making the list. 


Ah . . . the things we do for the sake of getting that shot =)

LOL, very entertaining. Although I recognise I few I use also :-(

LOL!!!!!! You guys made me laugh so hard!!!  

this is the cam-a-sutra jaja


why are most of these people Asian? ?)

Because most people ARE Asian???

best answer by far! lol it does make the most sense

Hey, ah jist calls 'em like ah sees 'em... Been gittin' me in trouble ALL MAH LIFE! :) And, ummmmmmm, just glad nobody had a picture of ME takin' pictures... I'd look about like that first booger!


Mcnally has a particular one where he puts his left hand on his right shoulder and lay the telephoto on his left elbow... works darn well against a wall!

Weeeeeeell.. Time to forget my photo MFA. The self-consciousnesses....It's closing in. 

Here's what I look like while capturing macro photos of wildflowers, I call this pose the "tortoise" :)

LOL, that me in Photo#3

The camera sits where it needs to be in order to get the intended perspective. Take a picture of a street at eye level, then take the same picture from a ladder about 5 feet off the ground; two entirely different images IMO. I often stand on the roof of my car in order to get a different perspective in a pinch. When photographing a tree, for example, and you want the image to be a typology, you need to be exactly half way up the height of the tree, dead straight. Most trees are higher than double your height. 

hah))))))) funny!

I think the woman being photographed by "Vladimir Putin" (isn't that how HE likes to dress???) isn't posing by the tree... she's trying to HIDE FROM HIM behind it! :)
