“Can I Have You Move a Little to the Outside?”
No, this post isn’t about real estate photography trade secrets — I don’t divulge those.
It’s about family photographers.
Apparently, in composing an extended family portrait — we had ours done this weekend in conjunction with a Jewish holiday — there is a rule of thumb that “in-law” spouses are to be placed to the inside.
That way, if any of the couples divorce, the family can’t simply crop them out — and instead have to come in for new photos.
And you thought the photographer was re-positioning you because you were too tall/short/fair/dark etc.!
P.S.: The photographer said the above with a wink — but his tone suggested he wasn’t entirely kidding.
