Last year I published a post called 6 Reasons I am a Blogger and not a Model and you lot loved it! In fact, I shared some a long time ago too – see those here, look how young I am!! It came back to my mind recently when I chatted to a couple of other bloggers about being photogenic, and I realised I’d probably gathered quite a few more bloopers since then, so I started scrolling back through my picture gallery on my computer. Yep, I was right! And it’s more than just a few bloopers too – in fact, these are only a tiny fraction of them, #oops!
Naturally I’m not photogenic. Ask my friends and family – they know just however many weird facial expressions I can pull completely by accident – and mother, let’s NOT find that photo. She knows the one I’m talking about, I’m convinced she has it hidden away somewhere for my wedding or something…
Anyway, I’m no good at coming up with captions for these but really some of them just speak for themselves and I’m sure you’ll be able to figure out why they never made it to the blog…so on with the bloopers!
I find it difficult to stay in the frame
I can’t do the elegant jumping thing
The wind and I frequently disagree
I cannot do a sensible face, and if I do, I look angry
My limbs disappear
I fail at “Model Poses”
I get distracted by animals to hug, or bubbles, or other people…
Now please tell me I’m not the only one?!
