Say Cheese

Say cheese, camera

“Say Cheese”

You ever notice that must photographers use the same old fashion, “1, 2, 3 cheese.” When taking photos. My personal experience that’s just too long. That’s just too much time for something to go wrong in the photo. Below are some of the issues I experience when using waiting for “cheese”.

* Closed eyes
* Moving hands
* Not looking directly at the camera
* Turned Heads
* Talking
* Laughing

My personal approach to this issue is taking the photo on two. That’s right on 2. Let me walk you through how I do it and how I perfected it.

Let’s say I am at a birthday party. Now the guest of honor wants a photo with co-workers they invited to the event or whomever.


Pose the group
Inform the group I am taking the picture on 2 and tell them to smile on two.
I adjust the camera to the appropriate settings.
Begin the countdown 1, 2 and the snap the photo.

Next time you’re out this summer or at event out with family and friends please try this approach and let me know how it works for you. When it works make sure to tell your friends and family where you got the tip from lol.
