Funny and Humorous Books For Photographers

Photography isn’t always serious. To me it’s a way to relax and have fun. To a professional photographer just being able to to laugh at themselves or the industry is almost a necessity, or else they would go crazy.You need to have a little fun with photography, that’s why most of us got into it to begin with.

So what is a camera buff do when they don’t have a camera in their hands? Read about photography, and not just serious technical stuff either, sometimes it’s just having fun again. Here are my favorite photography books. Keep these in mind for Christmas, a birthday, Mothers Day, anniversary, or just any time is perfect to give a gift to someone you love.

Awkward Family Photos: This series has gone viral and taken the industry by storm. What poses, props, and settings we once thought were cute have now become a bad joke. Really good for a laugh. There are now Awkward Family calenders, games, and even puzzles. But the puzzle might be stretching it a bit. The partner to the Awkward Famy Photos is the  Awkward Pet Photos just as funny and we wonder why our kids grow up weird and our pets look at us funny.

I Can Has Cheeszeburger: Now it’s the cats turn. Why is it cats are so amusing in posed photos? Maybe because they can be posed and propped with everything from beer cans to books and everything in between. Dogs won’t do that, that’s why they wear the video cam on their head (see above). If cats were to wear a video cam it would be VERY boring.
