A Photo a Week: Photo bomb

Photo bomb

We’ve all seen them, and many of us of done them. Photo bombing is so popular that Jimmy Fallon did a photo bombing segment with Cameron Diaz on the Tonight Show. My husband has been known to photo bomb at wedding receptions (making him the bane of many a wedding photographyin the greater Salt Lake Valley area). A well-done photo bomb can create a great photo that you love. A bad photo bomb can ruin an amazing shot. No matter the setting, a photo bomb usually gets most of the comments when looking through photos.


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

    1. My brother-in-law was hiding behind the couple and popped up just as the picture was taken. To me a photo bomb is someone or something unexpected or unwanted “crashing” the photo. It’s usually done for humor.
