Default Poll of the day: Favorite photo backdrop?

Do you purchase port disembarkment, dinner shots, or formals? What's your favorite backdrop: sunset, ship, canvas, stairwell, black and white, etc.

I rarely purchase the "theme shots" though I did get the family shot with the leprechaun on our St. Patty's Day cruise this year. Favorite backdrop: sunset or the ship. Plus, we alway buy one disembarkment ship, just because! We even have one port with a leap year date (my husband thought it was swell).

We NEVER buy them unless we like the way we look in the photos. Most of the good ones we've seen (and bought) were taken when we disembarked for port days. We've bought several group photos taken at dinner on formal night, but other than those, it's rare that we buy any at all. We did buy one "pirate" photo one time when I scared the "pirate." What a hoot that waw! We refuse to stand in line for a formal "portrait" on a ship. Usually, we take better ones of our friends, and they usually take better ones of us.

We buy at least one 8x10 and one 5x7. I like the ship/ocean backdrop. The 5x7 is usually the dinner photo. That is our momento of our dining companions. We usually get them to sign the photo holder so we can remember their names in years to come. Even our waiters sign them!

I have bought one or two each cruise - usually one port debarkation photo with the ship and date on it, and maybe one other. I did get one formal portrait of me, and I gave it to my Dad and he really enjoyed it (I absolutely hate getting my picture taken, but my Dad wanted a nice pic of me, so I bit the bullet - and it really did turn out nice! The flower arrangement in the pic matched the color of the dress I was wearing.)

It depends on my mood at the moment. I bought one last fall on the Royal Princess with the infamous stairway backdrop only because everyone was commenting on it.

Same thing happened to me on my Costa Cruise in March, my table companions practically dragged me to the photo area to buy my photo. I should have made them buy it if they liked it so much!

I think the smile does it! I'm always smiling when I'm cruising then I take the pictures to work and they say, how come you don't look that happy at work!!! Sue

So far I have always botten the boarding photo and at least one port day photo and the group dining shot. Hey Tom, how about sharing that Scared Pirate shot with us!

We only buy the ones that look good to us. I hate to spend that much money for a picture that is not flattering. Divetex I do remember that picture, too funny.
