    i got an iphone last week. i have now become one of those yuppie douchebags. to tell you the truth, i'm liking it a lot more than i thought i would.

    if i was really into this shot, i would've gotten a wristband, and also worn something plaid. ugh. i do no like the plaid trend going on.

    note: this is actually a week late. it should've been taken last week when i got my iphone. no matter how much i try, i can't wash this stink of failure off of me :( i still plan on taking another photo this week to make up for it.


    i really hate the crooked baseball cap. it looks utterly retarded. why do people do this?

    strobist: 580exii into shoot through umbrella, camera right in front of model, triggered by an elinchrom skyport. 520ex snooted, camera left and behind model, triggered by an optical peanut trigger. thanks to will for the use of the second flash/trigger.

      Anatomy of someone who is just asking for it.

      hmm, i don't think this is anywhere near douchebaggy enough.

      for some reason, i thought you looked like a cricket player. but i guess you yanks probably don't know what they look like anyway!

      Nice look! Congrats on joining the iPhone revolution... enjoy! :}

      P.S Get a case for that thing, they slip, drop and crack easy...

      The Libby is wise.

      A tip: hard cases will open on contact. Get a revo2.

      A true douche would also have a Yankees hat on. Here is a handy guide:

      libby and dottie: thanks for the heads up. i've already got a revo2 on it's way. according to UPS, it's in OH.

      thanks to everyone else for the comments! there's a lot more douchiness that could've been done to this photo, but i could only work with what i had! :)

      I'm sorry, but you're just not able to pull it off. The hat needs to have a beer label on it, or at the very least a Honda logo. And if it's Honda, it has to be a visor, not a hat.

      Also, dbags tend to wear long sleeve shirts with vertical stripes. And if they are stuck wearing a polo shirt, it's pink, not white. At least in Ames at the moment. And I don't know if you went all out or not, but I hope you had bathed in at least one full can of Axe Body Spray.

      you need some faux tan and some bling there chief. A crooked visor with a whole bunch of way gelled up hair would have been nice too.

      I did get a good laugh though. fuckin' JAGERBOMBS!

      I've been calling you a d-bag for years...

      I think you look cool, guess that makes me a bag.

      What is it with volkswagons and apple products. Everyone I know, including myself, who has a vw, also has a mac.
      Does that add to the douche factor?
      And please don't judge me by the profile picture, it's old.

    14. Luke H 77 months ago | reply

      I've had several VWs and I'm a PC guy. My wife has a macbook.

      The difference is I'm all about utility and she's all about 'what car is red and cute?" She likes her mac for the same reason she likes a cabrio.

      They don't make VAG-COM (vw diagnostic) software for Mac ;-)

      To really make this extra douchey add it to 20 groups and add 15 tags! Oh wait.. um, nevermind.

      You just figured out the iPhone is a killer app, really? You are so much smarter than those yuppy scum bags! Really I mean that.

      By the way. By giving the lighting information were you trying to show how not to light a portrait? You left arm is too hot. Right to dark. Shirt is right in between. Half assed catch light in glasses.

      Yuppy FAIL. Oh... and Canon SUCKS!
