Here is a book every Portrait photographer should have on their coffee table – Awkward Family Photos.
I spent an hour flipping through it yesterday at a friend’s place and it’s a very funny read – but also reminded me a lot of the shots in my own family album from when I was a child!
Yep – as the title suggests it’s a book filled with photos of families (and other groups) that will make you cringe. Sometimes it’s because of what everyone’s wearing, sometimes it’s the haircuts (the 80’s were especially cruel on that front), sometimes it’s the posing and sometimes it’s a combination of these and other factors – awkward…. and very very funny photos.
While not a serious photography book it does serve as a ‘what not to do’ guide for portrait photographers and would make a great stocking stuffer this Christmas (Amazon have it for just $9.99 as I write this so it’s a good price for that type of gift too)!
Got an Awkward family Photo to share?
