This guy expertly called out friends who take bad photos of you, and people are relating

Raise your hand if this sounds familiar: You’re on a vacation or in front of a pretty backdrop, so you hand your phone over to your friend to snap a photo of you — only to find that approximately none of the photos are flattering or usable.

Such was the struggle of Anthony Keeling, a 20-year-old University of Georgia student and model who always takes great photos for his friends, but never gets good photos in return.

“I am used to being in front of the camera but I also know what looks good on camera and what doesn’t — which really comes in handy when I’m behind the camera,” he told BuzzFeed News.

Subsequently, Keeling has become the default photo-taker among his group of friends. He said, “It sometimes even comes back to bite me in the ass because if I have to take the picture, I can’t be in it,” he said.

While vacationing on a cruise in the Bahamas, Keeling asked a friend to take a photo of him. Frankly, the photos turned out… not great.

Keeling’s tweet calling out the bad photo takers in our lives resonated hard with Twitter users, who quickly began posting their own failed photos in solidarity. false

Hear that, people? Step up your photo-taking skills for your friends. It’s only fair.
