Blogger FAIL Photo Collaboration!

Posted on October 13, 2013

Hi Guys!

Following on from my Celebrities and Bloggers Without Makeup post, my next collaboration is Blogger FAIL Photos!

I wanted to create a blog post showing the funnier side of bloggers – the photos we use on our blogs are always the best ones, taken at the most flattering angles, using the best lighting. They are edited and adjusted so we look as good as possible. I want to show that us bloggers are real people, and sometimes it takes 50 shots just to get a couple of decent ones! (it does for me anyway, ha ha!) My aim is to create a post showing our best blogger FAIL photos!

Maybe the wind is blowing and your hair is going crazy, maybe your cat jumps in the shot, or you’re making a weird face, everyone has some dodgy photos!

The aim of this post is to show that we are normal people too, we like to have a laugh and laugh at ourselves, so here are everyones’ best ‘fail’ pics! Enjoy!

So first up is Zoe from http://www.facevaluebeautyblog.co.uk

This is my “Oh crap, I’m about to sneeze” face, captured in all it’s glory whilst taking a beauty closeup. Haha I actually look terrified, as if it was going to be some huge life-changing sneeze..


Next is Jessica from http://pinkcupcakesandcouture.com

This is my photo. My camera died in the middle of filming while I had one eyebrow. I wasn’t pleased lol!


This is Becca from http://rebeccacraft.com/

Whilst getting ready to take a shot of my new mascara and long lashes I ended up sneezing. Not the best look for a beauty blogger!


Next is Natasha from http://natashaswonderland.blogspot.co.uk


And Susan from http://bloosies.blogspot.co.uk


Next is Charlotte from http://dinoprincesschar.blogspot.co.uk

I’ve attached one where I was trying not to fall over, hence the weird expression!


Next up is Sophie from http://www.simplesophie.com

“Pirouettes aren’t always elegant”


Next is Kristie from Www.KristieBlogsBeauty.blogspot.com

This happens to the best of us, experienced or total novice!


Next is Vickie from http://stonesgotstyle.blogspot.co.uk

I guess it’s all a case of blogger commitment! Aka running to a friends party but knowing you have to get an OOTD post up! So obviously you wait untill all the decent light has gone, get very drunk, get your friends even drunker and then make them take pictures of you posing like a pro (or not). And hey presto you have captured a passed out drunken french lady in your background along with a lot of alcoholic beverages.  I must admit this picture was not my finest hour and I think it’s safe to say that I had a lot of editing to do. As well as a lot of explaining to my readers.


Next up is Leigh from http://www.obviousleigh.co.uk

Here are my outtakes from todays outfit shoot, theres the usual eyes closed, not controlling my laughter and the not ready for the shot kinda one.


Next up is Louise from http://inspire-magazine-online.blogspot.co.uk


Next is Shona from http://shonaelizabeth.blogspot.com

This is what happens when you think you’ve stopped recording but really, the cameras still rolling and you end up leaving this in the end of one of your videos..


Next we have Huda from http://hudasbeauty.blogspot.co.uk


Next up is Sarah from http://knickersandnailpolish.blogspot.co.uk

My photographer/boyfriend was just getting everything in focus so I was mucking about, but he took the picture anyway!


Next is Stephanie from http://www.stephanierblog.blogspot.com.au


Next is Sascha from www.feathersandbutterflies.wordpress.com

Here is my outtake photo – it’s basically just of me pulling a funny face and not being ready when the camera went off


Next is Sarah from http://fridayisforeverblog.com

He told me to ‘work it’ so I Asda’d it?!


Next is Georgina from www.makeup-pixi3.com


Next is Katie from http://golddustk.blogspot.co.uk


Next is Alex from http://byxela.blogspot.co.uk


Next is Estelle from http://letmegoxo.blogspot.co.uk

Let’s just say this was my first ever try at taking photos of myself close up and they didn’t turn out very well! Luckily, there were two that were up to some sort of standard!


And finally, my good self. I have no idea what was going on here and I have no excuse!
