Have you ever wondered why people are supposed to smile when they take a picture? Where did that habit begin? Why was smiling chosen as the default for picture-taking?
What if you look better exhausted or angry or even depressed?
Anyone have thoughts on this? You can go ahead and research your reply, but please try to include your opinion too.
People would rather look back at pictures of themselves smiling as opposed to frowning or blank faces because they want to remember the GOOD times, and their smiling represents that.
Also, I don't know anybody who doesn't look better smiling and happy than depressed and mopey.
Yeah, and look at a photo where someones smiling. You think "Aww, that's Nice".
Then look at a photo where someones unhappy. You just think, "Ha, Emo"
Haha, when I first just read the title of this topic, I was like hey wtf, are they talking about that movie I'm making?.
You know, I'm making a movie together with LostOverThere called 'Say Cheese!'
Back then though didnt they have to stand or sit still for a long period of time while the film plate got exposed to the light or something,perhaps this is why they didnt smile,as holding a smile for such a long period would of been difficult.
Nobody knows an answer to that question. Even a discussion about it isn't necessary, so this topic is closed.
Please make more useful threads...
