Do keep your camera remote hidden.

Keep the illusion up that somebody is taking your picture.

Do forcefully stare down strangers watching you.

Silently alert let them that what they’re doing is not ok. Don’t do this while the camera is taking your picture.

Don’t look like you’re gonna murder someone.

Try to look relaxed and happy.

Don’t adjust your clothing while the camera is on.

Wait between shots to beautify yourself.

Don’t burp while taking a picture.

It just ain’t classy.

Do take precautions to protect yourself from bugs, weather, and the elements.

But don’t do it in a way that distracts from your outfit.

Do keep your hands and feet inside the photo.

(again, the only exception is if it’s in the name of being artsy.)

Don’t work with dramatic accessories.

They will try to steal your spotlight.

Don’t pose like this. Ever.

The I’m-pooping-in-nature look doesn’t look good on anybody.
