Leave 'Em Laughing

Is something funny going on? Photograph it!

Humor has always been a theme for photographers, be it funny signs, juxtapositions or situations. Look for contrasts, visual non-sequitors, or just moments that make you go, "huh?"

It isn't always easy to find humor (ask any comedian) but it exists everywhere if you know where to look. Animals and children are a good fodder for funny photos. A wide-angle lens can cause distortion which may not be desirable for portraits but can create funny faces if your subject is willing.

As you roam around with your camera, always be on alert for silly situations. Don't worry, you'll find them.

Remember to share your best humorous pictures. Laughter and humor is the secret to long life. Don't keep it to yourself!

It ain't over 'till... I found the juxtoposition of the name of this store and the sign on the door to be hilarious! Photo © 2004 by Mason Resnick.
