Never have your kids babysit my young children. I would hate to be called to the hospital because your kid thought what they were doing was funny. Yeah, babysitting isn't a felony but bad decisions can easily get out of hand.

And if she would decide to jump off a bridge.............

Nope, she isn't responsible one bit for the actions of anyone else other than herself. And even that could be debatable in a court of law as to whether or not she is liable for her own actions.

And the sun will come up tomorrow.

The OP stated, himself, that her actions caused the others to do the same. THIS CAUSED THE KIDS BEHIND HER...he seemed to state proudly...and is now back peddling to indicate that it was THEIR choice.

While he is correct that it WAS their choice...he is ALSO correct that his daughter CAUSED it.

Oh, this has nothing to do with bridges. :rolleyes: I always love when people use that...IF THEY JUMPED OFF A BRIDGE...blah, blah, blah. Make a valid point.

I feel stoned just reading this thread......please don't let it end!

I know, it's a classic. Everybody getting their panties in a bunch because they don't agree with some stranger who's opinion is completely irrelevant in their life. Internet is always ready providing good laughs :-)


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

...this is a photography forum! This thread is badly in need of photos!

I promised last night that if the thread was still going (and I'm amazed that it is!) that I would take a picture of myself with something on my head in my best model pose. Now: I don't have time to do that today, so I've pulled something out of the archives:

It's good you taught them what's really important :rolleyes:

Thanks for the sarcasm.

They're successful because they studied at school, got degrees and are heading towards being at the top of their chosen professions.

They have married wonderful wives, have great circles of friends and will be in a position to pass on the love to their children that my wife and I showed them.

So yes, we did teach them what's really important and we did a really great job with it.


Cheers,
Bear Dale

Looks self inflicted, though you wear it very well. I hope you were wearing matching pumps.

Humility not being one of those things... I'm just guessing:D

Again, I just have to ask, was the initial story even that funny?

That's ok. Lifetouch photographers have no soul.

This. Lifetouch,Jostens etc all these companies that do school pictures the people behind the camera aren't pro photogs. They know how to pose people and that's about it. Everything else they are trained to do by the managers of the studios (who themselves may be only slightly better than average photogs) I know personally for me I'll probably never bother with buying school photos when my kid is older just take my own in my little basement studio using backdrops and things I already have. I may buy grad pics since those are a pain to replicate at home but other than that the days of kids getting posed and parents actually buying the pictures is I think going the way of the dinosaur in the day and age of everyone being able to own a DSLR or heck even a P&S that can be quite high quality at a relatively low cost.

I could see way back in the film era when getting high end equipment was cost prohibitive but when you can buy a 5D full frame camera for $500-600 used add on a decent 135mm F2 lens and you've got an awesome portrait setup for just over a grand. I'd say all said and done if you really wanted to shoot pics of your kids in every activity you could do it for a couple grand into your gear and be producing professional quality pics even in low light situations. With that said yes I know it would take time to learn PP and proper exposure and such but that's why you learn when your kids are young so that when the big moments in life come you're already ready to hit the ground running

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

As is the tone this thread is taking in some of the replys to others posts. People tend to over analyze and read between the lines when there is nothing to be read.

You could close down 100% of the teenagers facebook accounts for postings that are worse than what this young girl is said to have done.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

For those saying the OP's daughter was wasting time, consider this: at school picture day, all the students are usually required to have their picture taken. Since her parents never buy the pictures, there is no reason to have her picture taken, so now the school is wasting her time. She was not wasting the photographer's time anymore than the school was wasting hers.

Her time and the photographer's time aren't equal, that's the problem.

The OP had the opportunity to OPT his daughter OUT of the photo day but stated that it was too much trouble to do so. So, based on that logic...her father actually was the one wasting her and the photographer's time.
