Why do people say 'cheese' before having their picture taken?
Is the event cheesy? :shrug:

Why not say "guppies" instead?

1. Seriously? Because it forces you to smile n/t

2. But if you didn't expect the photographer to say 'guppies',
you'd get a real big smile!

5. Saying 'cheese' gives you an unnatural smile
Portrait photographers know saying "sex" gives a more natural smile, as well as a bit of a twinkle in the eye. :evilgrin:



Unless the subject is a fundie, o' course.
