Novemeber's theme is the ultimate in silly and I suspect anyone who joins in will have laughter cramps by the end of the session. The theme is "Holiday Cards". I know we have some non-American girls who participate so basically, it's tradition in some families to have a family portrait taken to be put on a yearly Christmas card which is then sent to friends and family. There seems to be some Christmas apparel/decorations involved in these portraits, which sets them apart from "normal" family portraits. Take a look at awkward family photos for some examples - this is what I'm encouraging. I want it to be SO much fun, the rules of photography are going out the window for this one which means Idon'tknowhowtotakepictures and Idonthaveagoodcamera can go right out the window too ;)
Find a group or put one together and have fun! Please share the poster I've posted on Silly Girls Photography facebook and encourage your friends to join in. If you feel your group could use a man's touch, go right ahead. Anyone who gets a guy to join in with this gets extra points!... didn't you know I grade you?
Here's some things that make for awkward hilarity (leave your own in the comments below):
someone doing the splits
a family pet, whether it's a dog or a possum (?)
the rebelious child
standing really close/far away
formal and casual
