If you need a bit of comic relief on Monday evening, this short parody by YouTuber MasterChiefin1 has you covered. It’s an ode to “the high school photographer,” that one person who “thought they were put on this Earth to take photos and think deeply.” Given our audience, there’s a good chance a few of us were this person.
The video doesn’t need too much by way of introduction. As Jacob (AKA MasterChiefin1) explains:
The High School photographer is the person in high school who thinks they are destined to take great photos and they snap photos of things that they think are deep. They share photography quotes on their Facebook or Instagram and proclaim no one understands them because they are such a deep being and they take photos to express that.
From chain-link, to railroad tracks, to bags drifting in the wind, and more. They act is if they see the world in a different light from the rest of us and they express that through their photos. For a photo speaks a thousand words.
This could honestly apply to any young creative who is apt to cross the line between “artsy” and “insufferable” from time to time. Even calling them “young” is probably a stretch. Regardless, whether you knew someone like this or you were someone like this, check out the full video up top for a quick chuckle.
