So you invest in a new camera and lens, and decide to take some amazing photos. You study photo blogs, watch videos, and read books about light, color and composition. But what to shoot?
Sunsets? Rainbows? Yellowstone National Park? Think again.
Rangers in Yellowstone National Park recently rescued a tourist who was trying to take a photo. All he wanted to do was take a great image that he could show his friends and family. But as he tried to get the right composition, he fell backwards off a cliff and by sheer luck got wedged in a small crevice in the Grand Canyon. They said he was lucky to land where he did because he was at the top of a 200 foot drop.
He would have been better off asking the park rangers where the transvestites hung out and have them pose. Here are the top three reasons to shoot a transvestite:
- You will probably not fall off a cliff. Most transvestites do not like heights.
- One of the first things you learn about photography is to try to tell a story, it rarely gets more interesting than a man dressed as a woman.
- You don’t have to sit and wait hours for the perfect light. Put him in a chair and ask him to smile, all transvestites love to be photographed.
Sure, you can go the traditional route and hike for miles into the woods or mountains in the middle of the night, and wait for a perfect sunrise. But as Ansel Adams, possibly the most famous photographer of all time once said: “A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”
Every picture tells a story
