The bane of all of us party loving people are the camera totting mortals. The wanna be paparazzi. Minus the large pay check for selling your photos to a glossy.
Now these wanna bees are cam whores themselves clicking away incessantly at everyone and everything with no concern for angles, light and poses. Not only are they down right annoying but they ought to follow a few simple rules and basic etiquette.
1. If you are gate crashing a party and thinking you may fit in by taking a few shots, the answer honey really is a big N.O. The least you can do since you crashed is to remain in the background or to hang with the few friends you know. Subtlety is the key.
2. The 200 or so photos you took of the party should be edited before uploading on Facebook. That would be the decent thing to do, however if decency is not in your vocabulary then stop tagging everyone in sight.
3. Don’t call out to people and then stun them with your flash; you will catch them off guard. The deer in the headlights look is not a candid shot.
4. If your subject seems to be under the influence then please do not take their pic. No one wants to be reminded of what they did the night before. Especially if its plastered all over the internet.
So unless we have to call in Sean Penn suggest you tone down the paparazzi antics. Stick to taking your own shots or decent photos of everyone else. Because it really should be a picture perfect moment.
