What can I say I love to joke, but probably I shouldn't do it all the time. Even though I know that I always do and have no plans of stopping. I hate getting pictures done and I am probably not alone. So since it's something that I probably should do when my asks me to I thought I better at least try and make it fun, So here is a tip when getting your pictures taken with the family or by yourself. What you want to do is tell the photographer you are a little nervous and that you haven't ever done this before, then in about 15 or 20 seconds unzip your pants and ask them if this is when you are supposed to take your pants off. I keep looking serious so they don't think I am joking. I do this to every photographer wherever I am at and whoever I am with. It makes pictures not suck so much. Once they laugh or look at you strangely just ask them seriously if they have ever filmed anyone naked. I think it is a standard question. It normally makes them very uncomfortable and want to get things done quicker. Plus if they are photographing me then I just want to know what they are thinking as they are taking the pictures. Either way you sped up the process and you had a little fun while doing it.
So next time you are taking pictures give it a try and it won't suck so very bad.
