The Moment Before you say 'Say Cheese' Challenge finished on Sunday, 29 Jan 2012 How many test shots you need to take while you shoot a group photograph ? And how many times you laugh when you check back those imperfect shots ? ( some with closed eyes, some changing the suit, some cleaning the shoe, a stranger enters the frame accidentally) Please go back to those never-published group-snaps and let all of us laugh to our hearts' content. * We are not inviting Trashes. We are inviting the group photographs which tells the real story... the real candid gestures of the people who are about to be photographed. But, these so called 'non-perfect' snaps are never evaluated as those never get a chance to be displayed. This is going to be a very unique and different challenge as people will be seen off-guard... the real character will come out. * And while voting you can keep in mind : 1. the snap which is very candid/lively 2. which makes you laugh 3. tells story
