Do You Look Like This When You're Shooting?

Wed Mar 03, 2004 12:01 pm

So, what sort of stance do you take when you're out shooting?

Bend and Smile?



Hot Leather? (Btw, her bag would make a great L lens carrier)



Crouching Canon Hidden Tamron?



Let's see how my pants stitches hold?



Spandex Stretch?



Where's the Potty?

All would be rejected for badstance...well except maybe the second pic which would be rejected for badleather.
All are damn funny!

Lyzzard,

Did you take these shots? If so, where?!

They're hilarious...

I guess I'm either in the "Spandex Stretch?" or the "Let's see how my pants stitches hold?" stance when I shoot. Hilarious Pictures. Big thumbs up

Nah, I didn't take em. A friend had emailed them to me and it put a smile on my face, so I thought I'd share a laugh or two. I did rack my brain for hours thinking up of those captions though.

The "Where's The Potty" stance is great if you got a strong headwind trying to blow you off balance. Not good for stationary panning though, unless you have very nimble hips.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Funny thread!  Laugh out loud

I usually do the "Statue" I stand with my right foot slightly in front of my body and stand up straight with no bend in my back!

The spandex stretch kinda looks like a Karate stance.

Lately I've been favoring the kneeling stance which gives me the effect pictured below (sorry, but I have to plug).:

That's okay, we all do it.

Kennling for me works for flight deck shots when I don't seat on hte jumpseat, like in those shots :

A mate of mine happened to take a shot of me on a recent visit to LGW  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Embarrassment



I am kind of leaning a bit, no major ass or trouser stretching games though! Big grin

LMAO,

Seems to me the asians have their own style when it comes in taking pictures. Note in one photo of that guy standing normal with an awkward look to his face. :-P

I normally have a good posture taking pictures, sometimes I will slouch if I am tired. I try to look professional and keep my bearing at all time.
