Laughter is contagious. One person starts doing it and soon others around them follow.
Capturing real human emotions with a camera can be challenging. Some people are guarded with their emotions, and getting a real smile, let alone a laugh can be difficult.
If you’re a portrait photographer it’s your job to make your clients feel at ease enough to relax and let their real emotions show. If you do candid or street photography it’s about paying attention and capturing just the right moment. Here are some images of people laughing to get you inspire or maybe to put a smile on your face too.
Notice they aren’t all technically perfect, but can you feel the emotion and hear the laughter? Then the image is successful. Yes, animals count too!
