Ladies and Gentlemen, a quick post to ressurect the blog, and one you can join in on. My best, genuine, snapper excuses, along with their translations. Comment or tweet @jadedsnapper!
“The camera’s battery went flat in the last minute of the game -that’s why I didn’t get the killer goal”
I nicked off just before the end to beat the traffic
“During that dawn police raid both my flashguns broke.”
Didn’t charge ‘em, again
“Sorry I’m late – I was double booked”
And the last job had a buffet on
“He was looking the other way”
I was looking the other way
“I made an aesthetic choice to take a picture with the other snappers in’
I got pushed out the scrum. No one likes me.
“This lens is shit. It wouldn’t focus”
This lens is in manual
“The camera’s broken. Every time I fired the trigger, the camera’s viewfinder went black!!”
I’ve never seen the Mirror-Up setting before.
“Sorry you didn’t like the last picture I took of you, the PictureBoss put the wrong one through”
I hate you
“Did I crop out your logo? I do apologise”
I hate you
“What do you mean you looked like a pervert in that picture?”
You are a pervert. And I hate you.
