It's a well-known stereotype that guys care less about the details when it comes to aesthetics; we are kinda chill about things like lighting, mood and colors, just as long as the desired message gets across. This post reinforces that cliché and then some; it's girlfriend's pics of their beloved Vs boyfriend's efforts.

You can see the method in the girlfriend pics: nice lighting, a good angle and the timing of pose that suggests that she took a few photos at the same time and chose the best one.

On the other hand, the boyfriends. The timing suggests they took a few and chose the worst one, or simply waited until they could capture her at her most hilariously awkward. Because, you know, it's funny!

Perhaps it's just a matter of goals. Maybe girlfriends want to photograph their guys at their smoldering best, capturing not just their looks but their unique personalities too, because that's what she would want. Boyfriends might prefer a funny, goofy shared memory of good times, who cares about your 'good side?'

Either way, the list makes for some hilarious comparisons so you know the drill: Scroll on down and check them out for yourself!

Really like the shot on the left. I don't normally like when shots are off kilter but this one works for me. Love the little lens flare. It tells a story, like all good shots. Way to go. I been playing around with photography for 25+ years and I have only taken one shot that I felt was really awesome. That's kinda depressing but I already know I am way to critical on my own stuff. You've got a possible future in this! Nurture it.

I love both of them. The shot of the bf shows that he's an average guy. He's got a girlfriend but prefers playing his video game. Dude, you got a joystick sticking out of your phone! Doesn't that poke your head when you try to answer the phone? Gotta love the shot of the gf as well. Out of focus but still great. In fact, I'd argue that due to her expression and subject matter of the shot it looks more rushed and hurried and more honest. She looks amazed that he was able to put the game down long enough to snap a pic of her eating cheeseballs. Sister, where are you that you got a giant container of cheeseballs sitting in the seat next to you? Both great shots!

I would believe you. Both awesome shots! If I had to choose a fave it would be the shot of the gf. I love the color, subdued lighting and the way she looks so engaged in what she's looking at or thinking of. Awesome job to you both. And I just realized that the shot of the bf is next to oversized table and chairs. Awesome use of black and white colors without going into b&w and the shadows really set it off. Kinda hard to look all serious when you are standing next to 12 foot table and chairs! Just awesome!

I love that the one place he chose to snap a pic is when you stand under the evacuation route sign. Now that's a typical guy. Always looking for the exit.
