having been a tourist a few times lately, i found this pretty funny
The angle AND the skinny jeans + converse.
And the camera.
I dunno. Have you noticed the huge number of teenage girls with really expensive cameras who think that they’re photographers because of it?
It’s definitely not just teenage girls. Also true of a lot of grown women I know who seem to think starting a photography business will be easy as pie. (except easier! Because hey, no baking.)
And the bag of freshly bought books.
The angle actually does help. Though it kills your back. ;)
Every teenage girl nowadays thinks she’s a photographer and it’s all the rich teenage girls who think they’re photographers who get fancy cameras even if they can’t take a picture better than a 2 year old. ;)
here’s an idea – instead of leaning backwards, take one step back!
Wait, so how does the angle make the photo better? Or it doesn’t? I honestly want to know.
It helps as much as stepping back a foot and standing normally would. So, maybe.
Holding the lens incorrectly is always a tipoff of something….
I think they mean the art graduate is working harder to get that good composition, whereas the tourist just points and shoots.
The ‘tourist’ might actually be a spy or a burglar, since the subject appears to be the security camera.
The leaning backwards gets your body underneath the camera which helps to stabilize it.
taking a step backwards would ruin the perfect angle, the body angle actually does help in composition.
As for tourist vs student, this is a horrible representation, because EVERYONE knows the art student would be shooting the bag on the ground
