To my family,I have come to the conclusion that we are all genetically incapable of taking a good photo. Unfortunately, it seems to be contagious and has also affected the in-laws. There isn't a single one of us capable of taking a group shot - even with the instant feedback of digital cameras.No matter what the situation, the photo will be poorly framed and have other "features" such as:1. Light pole growing out of someone's head - check2. Backlit faces with weird shadows - check3. Light fixture focused in the foreground, people kinda blurry - check4. Sun glint blooming in the frame - check5. Photo taker's shadow falling over main subject's face - check6. Half of group with eyes closed - check7. Everyone looking in the wrong direction (made us look shifty) - check8. 60% of photo is off-centered background - check9. Part sun and part shadow so no one is illuminated correctly - check10. (My personal favorite) Dog licking himself in background of family shot - checkI'm not sure what the solution to this may be... perhaps recruit a neighbor and hope they don't get infected... or possibly develop our PhotoShop skills and "fix" the photos that way.
