Look here, Hollywood photographers. We need to talk. When your final images look worse than a first year college student with a dream and the promise of $50 to shoot their cousin's wedding, something has gone amiss.

Actor John Lithgow (R) and Mary Yeager

Has taking a photo angled from BENEATH the subject in order to exacerbate a double chin ever been the right choice? No.

Nina Arianda (L) and Judith Light

Why is this angle an option? No matter how good the subject looks, everyone is distracted by all the background noise.

Candid laughter shots are a crapshoot. They make you look like you're enjoying yourself at the expense of distorting your features. Also, if only one of you is laughing, that's a little awkward.
