Taking a photograph with a famous person is only halfway to success. It’s hard to get a really good picture, and a lot of people get extremely creative at moments like this, which is not always appropriate. Plus, celebrities themselves can do some weird things.
When you manage to encounter a celebrity you’ve dreamt of meeting for years, chances are you’re going to want to take a picture with them to cherish the moment forever. Usually, celebrities lead busy lives and your chance to capture a moment with them comes down to a single photo opportunity (especially for most of us not brave enough to ask the star for a retake).
