Annie Leibovitz shot the official Obama family portrait. You can see it here:
Discussion centres around how truly awful people think this picture is.
I think that is harsh.
The family group composition is good – background, not so much. That background could be more out of focus. And the picture right behind the younger daughter’s head is bad. The cut off picture frames at the top, too. Cut fingers, also. The verticals not being vertical on the right bugs me. Older daughter’s hair is not separated from the background. But awful? The family is nicely positioned. Expressions are good.
All in all, a nice picture that could be better but no doubt Annie had little time and no choice in the location. And the secret service men probably intimidated her. Unless you know the background: easy on Annie, everyone!
