30 Breathtakingly Bad School Photos!

Do you still remember your first school photos? They certainly captured a special moment, for example your first day at school, sporting a big, proud grin. And you could look as stupid as you wanted, because your face was just one among many others. In later years, school photos were a different story, because you had to do portrait shots. At that point, at the latest, it became obvious that most people unfortunately have no on-screen presence and aren’t able to control their facial expressions at all. If you were “lucky” (and who wasn’t?), that picture of you looking like a troll ended up in the yearbook.

But if you think you got it bad back then, check out the snapshots below: Here are 30 school photos that surely ruined lives!
