Pam and Dave Zaring only wanted to have a decent, if not perfect, family portrait last year. However, what they got when they hired a “professional photographer” from Missouri was a series of photos that quickly went viral on social media for the funniest reason.
When doing post-photo editing, it’s either you do it just right to produce a beautiful photo or you overdo it and ruin the whole thing. For the Zaring’s, the latter happened when they paid Lesa Hall to take their pictures in May 2017.
What would you do if your family portrait came out looking like this?
Pam, in a Facebook post on Friday, shared the final prints she got from Hall after a family portrait session from last year. Pam assures the public that her post is legit and not made-up.
Here's a photo of Pam and Dave and their sons.
And here they are with their “LEGO-fied” versions.
“Ok. This is NOT a joke. We paid a photographer, who claimed to be a professional, $2-250 for a family photo shoot. Please see these FOR REAL photos she delivered to us.”
What excuse could a “pro photographer” have for these awful shots?
According to Hall, “the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day.”
She also explained she didn’t receive any retouching lessons from her professor.
The kids thought their parents were joking. Apparently, not.
Naturally, anyone would be furious if they’d waited for a year for their photos and still end up with these unbelievably dreadful results. But not Pam – she had a positive attitude towards the whole thing and even thought it was totally funny.
“I literally have not laughed this hard in YEARS,” Pam wrote.
Pam reiterated that she didn’t make the whole thing up and it wasn’t a joke. Pam had asked Hall for the original pictures but didn’t need a refund.
How would you react if you were in the Zarings’ shoes? We’d love to know your thoughts in the comments section below.
Guy With Legendary Photoshop Skills Puts Himself Into Celebrity Photos
His self-portrait skills are just darn legendary!
Ah, the wonders of photo editing. With the time people spend in front of their computers, it's always possible to learn a skill or two. This guy from Indonesia certainly made great use of his idle time and elevated his Photoshop skills to legendary levels!
So inserting yourself in celebrity photos is nothing new. But Syahril Ramadan takes it to another level with how he conceptualizes ideas and the way he "acts" on the photos. He certainly looks like he was actually IN the photo.
You gotta give it to the man. His self-portrait skill is just darn awesome.
Chillin' with The Rock and the other cast of Jumanji 2 like a boss.
Below Freezing Temperatures Didn’t Stop ‘No Pants Subway’ Riders in New York
The first No Pants Subway Ride took place in 2002.
Even the extreme cold didn't bother any of this year's No Pants Subway Ride participants. As mid-afternoon temperatures dropped to 17 degrees with an additional 10-degree wind chill, pants-less subway riders still flocked New York City.
Reports say the turnout this year is lower than previous years, which is not a surprise considering the big freeze happening in North America and Canada. Nevertheless, the event kicked off at 3 p.m. on Sunday in New York City, with commuters converging at Union Station.
The pants-less participants wore layers upon layers of upper body clothing, but they kept their lower half at a bare minimum.
LJ Geraghty, a 36-year-old participant from Boston, has been travelling to New York for 14 straight years to celebrate the quirky annual traditional. She was quoted by the New York Post: ...
