In my searches through Match.com, I've noticed something. It seems that peoples photos (of themselves) fall under 1 of 4 categories:

1) Vacation Photos
2) Wedding Photos
3) Work related Photos
4) Holding a baby Photos

Posted Image

Then when I thought about photos of myself, I realized that 90% of my photos fall into one of the above 4 categories. Posted Image

The reason I was thinking about this is, I lost 40 pounds in the past 2 years and I don't have many 'new' photos to 'share'. I just realized, that's because I haven't been to any weddings, on vacation, and all of my friends kids are older.

The only photo I do have (in the past year) is one that was taken at work Posted Image


So what would your top categories (of photos of yourself) fall under?

My top category would be "Caught Unawares." I hate having my picture taken so it takes a devious plan to capture my image.

I'm always quite surprised about the photos people post of themselves, especially on places like Match. Either people have no good pictures of themselves or people take crappy pictures. I think it's a mix of both.

Being a photographer, I think it behooves everyone to know how to take a good photo as the taker and the poser. There's that joke about "which is my best side?" but I don't think it's silly to have that knowledge. And I think tht at some point in your life (maybe as celebration when you've lost a lot of weight) to get a nice portrait taken of yourself.

Personally I wind up with alot of pictures of myself because I use myself as a subject to test lighting setups. Otherwise I'd probably be like everyone else and have to crop my head out of a group photo Posted Image.

LOL - Yeah, there seems to be a lot of that - or the computer "white out" over the other peoples faces. Posted Image

I have to admit that my photo is guilty of such. It was a work photo where a co-worker had just bought a new digi-camera and wanted to test it out. Another female co-worker put her arms around me and said "Take our photo!".

So I had to do the old "crop her out" in order to submit a more recent (and lighter) photo of myself. Posted Image

Most of my recent photos of me are of me taking someone else's photo.

Most of the photo's I have of me are from parties(or at the bar). Probably close to 65% of them.

I don't see "nude" and "drunk" on the list. I'm usually one of the two in most of my photos.

How about the ever-popular "I have a camera, but no friends to take my picture" option?

Thanks, Mark. That kind of ties to the other thread, as it is what it on my desktop right now.

Sam, 140 pounds which way? I am getting looks when I go to work on base, and they check my 260lb picture on my ID, then compare to 189lb me. It's a good feeling. Posted Image

Let's not forget the obligatory picture of your pet or you holding your pet. I've seen a lot of girls with that on match, which is always nice.

Joel, the countless mirror photos on Myspace are hilarious.
