The official: Portrait Humor Thread....

Keep it clean...
Okay, so a friend asked me for some examples of "bad portraits"

As I was gathering a few examples... (I know, mine suck as well)..I thought I'd share....

You know... from one "bad" photographer to another...







Peace! 8)

What's wrong with the first picture?  I think it's great whenever you can catch a shot of a baby mid-dream with a smile on his/her face.  Well done.  :-)

The last picture is great... and been around awhile.  I photoshopped a friend's face over the guy and then the same face on the shirt over the dog and redid the text to say "World's Best Mullet" around five years ago.  Yeah, the friend had a mullet.  ;-)

Thanks.

+1000 Awesome !!!! I knew putting "Photography" at the end of your name was the first step in becoming a professional portrait photographer. Next stop... your first wedding with a Rebel & a kit lens for 3K.

How bout portraits "enhanced" by software?

I saw this ad for Portrait Professional located about this

When I was reviewing my weekend photos, this one made me laugh out loud. Two headless goats and two faceless people. How many more mistakes can I make in one picture?
