Humor in Photography

Some photo humor to cheer your day.

Photography and humor go together like hand to hand, so here is a little photo humor to lighten your day, let it not be said that photographers don't have a sense of humor!

You know you're dealing with a photographer when he or she tells you that:

They set the alarm two hours before sunrise for a photo ops

They can operate a camera with half frozen numb thumbs

Favorite lens malfunctions at the most inopportune times

A lens that falls from the camera is because it's faulty, not that they didn't put it in right

They have gotten a dozen insect bites before their first shot

They have dropped equipment down a hill never to be seen again

They have risked life & limbs to retrieve a fallen lens cap of which they have multiple others.

You get long winded explanations as to why they need another lens

Complains that everyone asks what camera they use

They have taken the shot of their lives only to realize that there was no film in the camera

They complain that photo submissions rejection letters are because no one knows what they are doing.

They wait for ever for the perfect light that never happens

They actually read and understand the fine print in magazine photos

They look at the back of postcards first to see if there is technical information, which there never is.

They constantly surf the net of other photographer's web sites for ideas but never acknowledge it.

Their disheveled appearance and ragged clothing is because they were out on the field,even at home.

They only look at adult magazines for the pictures, and mean it.

They photograph nudes because it's an art form, and don't mean it.

There's more film in the fridge than food.

The equipment comes first, who cares what happens to them

Who cares about a few broken bones is their motto.

They carry way more equipment than is needed, just to impress people.

They concentrate so much on the perfect shot, that they miss what's under their nose.

They share technical information with you and get upset when you don't know exactly what an f-stop is.

They have a second job while their photography makes it big, and they really believe it.

      Amusing. I like the camera with the umbrella. So if a loved one and your camera fell in a dangerous river which would you dive in and save?

      It's just one of those days...I think I needed to write this just to laugh at myself more than anything else.

      I'm no professional photographer, but the first two most definitely applied to me! Thanks for the laugh!
