The UX of School Photos

Here is what I imagine was said, “OK, now let’s get your hair combed.  Please cross your arms.  Now we put the tree picture behind you.  Lastly, let’s see a smile.  Ok, now keep that smile….wait for it….keep smiling….almost there….oops…one more second.”

What is the point of a photo like this?  What does the photographer think they are accomplishing?  Couldn’t we live in a world where the photographer took candid photos of each kid in class?

Something like this makes me infinitely happier.

He looks normal here.  The other one, he looks like a psychopath.  Maybe not oo much UX in here.  Candids are better than staged photos.  How’s that?
