    photo bombing...

    was listening to triple j this morning (thats a radio station to those playing at home) and they were discussing photo-bombing.
    heres a definition for ya: http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&so...T0lbdpUt4X6lqQ

    basically its the fine art intentionally ruining someones photo.

    I'd be interested in knowing if you have ever been photo-bombed yourself? show us your bombed photos!

    I bet it was the best and funniest photo of the wedding too.
    It's probably a framed 20X15 now.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    The first one to do this to one of my couples will have the foot of a very large angry man right up their clacker. Picture that!

    Never done it but I certainly have laughed at the pics on the internet about this. Hilarious!! I am way too polite to ruin someone else's photo!

    P.S. Good choice on radio station!!

    Funny! It happened to me a few weekends ago...yes we were out at a bar...n yes may have consumed a few... and I was taking a group shot of the girls and a few excessively drunk guys jumped in the pic sticking out their tongues. In this situation I think it's kind of expected, and did give us something to laugh about the next day

    I can post a lot of photo bombing work I have done over the years of friends and even clients during shoots! But not sure it its appropriate as it may involve rude hand gestures etc

    let me see if i can find something safe to show

    I had one of the worst kind on the weekend, I was helping out the local paper sports editor at the football/ netball grand final and was setting up to do the team shot of one of the winning teams when this woman with a p&s stepped in front of me and started rearranging the players, I politely said to her that I was taking photos for the local paper and could she please wait till I had finished. She stuck her nose in the air and kept pushing in front of me. By this time the kids were no longer interested in posing and moved off, the same thing happened with the second junior team and as a result both teams will not have a photo in the local paper I informed a club official of this and later saw them having a heated discussion, I did not see this woman near the presentation area for the rest of the day although she walked in front of me a few times while shooting from the boundary when there was about 2m behind me to the boundary fence.

    surprising it is something some people on here have not heard of, but then again I expect there to be a considerable age difference between me and most other members.
    more than half my photos from outing will have some one bombing in them, take this for example.
    I'm the one the right.

    not easy to spot the "bomber" at first.
