What’s wrong with this picture?

February 14, 2009

Blog Guy, I’m ready! I’ve been studying all of your tips for aspiring photojournalists, and here is my portfolio for your critique. What do you think?

Bravo! Perfect, both of them!

Oh, come on, I need a LITTLE criticism. Surely there’s SOMETHING!

Okay. On the shot of the soccer team captain… Does he actually have a mouth?

I think so. Should that have been in the picture?

Well, very strictly speaking, some folks consider that to be part of the face.

Damn! I should have caught that! Is there anything wrong with my Hollywood-style celeb shot?

Oh, there are probably some old fuddy-duddies who think the subjects should face the camera.

Now I’m totally demoralized! So these shots would never make the Reuters file?

Hey, I didn’t say that!

Enjoy life! Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

Now really! The photographer could have waited until after the guys finished peeing against the wall, before taking their picture!
