Straight Outta the Camera.

I think that most people just dump the pictures in their point-and-shoot digital cameras onto the web or at the photo lab so that they see everything that they’ve shot. There’s no filter. There’s no worry that, “Maybe these aren’t my best work…” or, “I should really crop this thing out…” or, “This would look so much better as a square…”

Well, here’s one of mine. This was at my son’s impromptu birthday party because the snow made it so no relatives could visit.

Right after I shot it I thought, this is gonna be hilarious. Then I showed it to her parents. They laughed too. It’s the kind of picture they can trot out when her friends come over when she’s 16. It’s perfect slide show fodder for the rehearsal dinner at her wedding.

I didn’t do anything to it despite thinking there must be something it needs. I think that starkness makes it work.
