What's Wrong with this Photo?

Yep, this is me, in 1974.


Besides my utter lack of fashion sense (WTF with those pants?? does this kid see color?), this photo shows the sterotypical "snapshot" and mistakes commonly


Sorry for the photo criticism, Mom, but...


* Subject is planted dead center

* Huge white background of wasted space, but also disturbed by open closet door, and the clutter in the dining room in the back (hut hey, that is my Aunt Dorothy's bizaare abstract painting on the wall, no one could every identify the exact subject, which is why I liekd it).

* Classic rail through the head

* Chopped feet- either cut your subject at the knewws, wast, breast, but not other cuts


I am only setting this up for an upcoming presenttion on photography- this is the level where a lot of start, just snapshots.


What else is wrong?


(And I mean it, the pants are OFF LIMITS).
