57. Not knowing which camera to look at

“Alright guys, gather up! We’re going to take a picture!”

And that’s the call. People begin to scramble looking for the first camera to pose for, and then the whole crowd begins to get together for the camera pose. A confusing time indeed; you have the really tall people, and the short ones, the big ones and the small ones trying to get their faces to show on the picture.

And just when you think it can’t get any more confusing, it does. Suddenly people begin to give their own cameras to the dude taking the picture because they want their own picture. Don’t they realize that it will be the same thing? It’s called sharing. Oh but wait, there’s more:

Now more photographers arrive and it is now time for the picture.. err, pictures. Trying not to blink for one picture is hard enough, so trying to keep your eyes wide open and the fake smile looking real for that long takes a lot of skill.

Despite all this confusion over one single photo shoot, the main question is always:

Which camera do I freakin’ look at?”

There are three or four of them and everybody is looking at a different one! I wonder if that’s how celebrities feel. . awkward.

  2. Hey this is again something I totally relate to! That’s why I prefer being the person who is taking a picture and confusing others! 😛

    True, true! I usually try to stare at a blank space of someone in the center (somewhere in the center of those people) and simply smile! Still, feel so awkward! If we were all friends, we would usually ask the friend who took the pic, “Which camera should we look at first?” and then the photographer would take the hint and let himself or the other photographer to take the pic first!
