Say Cheese Without The Blink
You may say that it's just a blink, but if nature and chance were really against you then, the photo may turn out with you sleeping while standing. It's weird to see someone sleep and stand, but it's even more weird to see someone sleeping, standing and SMILING! I don't know about you, but if I were to meet someone like that on the road, I'll be scared.
So what do you do when you found out that you were "sleeping" and smiling in that photo? Once, I tried to photoshop it. Sadly, I look better when I was "asleep". The eyes were kinda disproportionate, I accidentally smudged my nose, making it look like a blob on my face, and my face had a freckles explosion. In short, it was something I will never put in my Friendster photo profile.
It was then that I tried to tweak my eyes to look like those in japanese animes. It turned out to be a freaky picture. Japanese anime eyes are too big for normal humans. Don't know what I am talking about? Well, try these steps:
1. Clench both your fists.
2. Place both your fists in front of your eyes.
3. In that position, try talking to the people around you.
Now do you know why it's too big? I don't understand how it started out. I mean eyes that take up half of the space on your face! I guess it only works in japanese anime and not in human-land.
One piece of advice, try not to blink during your wedding photo. Your kids may ask what's so funny when you stand and sleep.
