There are few things more capricious or idiosyncratic than a person’s sense of humor. Not only does sense of humor vary across individuals, it also varies for any particular person depending on their mood and circumstances over time.

Capturing a photograph that *everyone* thinks is funny isn’t going to happen. However, some photos will tend to make a greater number of people laugh. Then again, some of the more subtle or “dryer” photos that make fewer laugh overall, may be a greater pleasure to those “fewer” who do find it humorous.

Humor in photography is obviously a tricky thing and difficult to score big with, short of producing obvious or gross visual “caricatures”.

For those who pursue humor photography from the creation end, however, it can be a distinct and intrinsic (self-evident) pleasure…:).
