[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

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 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.

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.
