A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
The goggling stares. The stiff, tortured stances. The false grins. The symptoms are all there.
You’ve got a bad case of Group Photo.
Fear not! Dr. Jojo, photoologist, at your service. And I’ve got a patent-pending, never-fail, miracle cure that’ll have you taking happy, fun group portraits whenever you want!
Step 1: Set the timer on your camera. Make it short, like ten seconds.
Step 2: Arrange everybody in your shot, making the sure the camera’s zoomed out enough so you won’t cut off anybody’s head.
Step 3: Here’s the tricky part: have everybody that’s going to be in the photo come around behind the camera.
(Except Great Aunt Lily who don’t move so good. She can stay.)
Step 4: Ready? Press the button! Now everybody has to run to get into the photo before the timer goes off. Yikes! Hurry!
Now wasn’t that fun? And we can almost guarantee you’ve got a picture of smiling people actually enjoying themselves. Maybe even injuring themselves!
Now if you can just convince them all to do it one more time…
