Photographic Perfection

Everyone does this and it drives me insane


  1. These are horrible photos, no question. (I am glad you mentioned selfie sardine photos, because they are no better at all)
    Beyond people with no photographic eye whatsoever, I wonder if the models need to take some of the blame. Even in today's selfie-obsessed world, there are a huge number of people who absolutely hate having their photo taken. Either a general hatred or a specific "My hair must be horrible" moment. A forced military-yearbook pose may be the only way to get everyone in the shot. Reduce everyone to the lowest common denominator.

  2. That's actually a pretty good picture: it's unbelievable in that nobody is right in the middle of blinking or talking. ;-)
