    This tickled me. It also reminded me of Tuna's photo of the Chinese girls with the camera phones at the fountain.
    It's hard to imagine anymore, not having a preview!

    I've heard it called "Chimping"...I guess because when there are a group of them all doing the same thing...they look like chimps?

    It's especially funny to watch a group of photogs at a pro sporting event when they all 'chimp' at the same time to see if they got the shot.

    I find it funny at weddings, you rarely even see anyone using the viewfinder anymore...everyone is holding the camera two feet in front of themselves...using the screen to compose the shot.

    I even know people who don't have a computer but just view all of their shots on the LCD screen.

    Oh! I've heard of chimping before, but I didn't know what it meant. I was especially puzzled when I was going to photograph those tigers and the photogs were all warning about "chimping" by the cages. (There is an alleyway between two cages that you shoot from). Idiot me assumed they meant scratching your armpits and making eee-eee sounds. LOL. Thanks for clearing that up for me!:lol:

    This is my bosses PJ class. They were taking picts of one of the Gaurdian Angel's training sessions as part of the program. I had already gotten my shots before the class got there, and I thought I would take a few of the class for memory sake. Just as I had them corralled into one area, the Angles took a break, and they all stopped to check their shots.:lol: Like I said, it remind me of Tuna's photo (not as good quality wise mind you, just the idea) so I snapped away.
