Welcome to Chinposin

OK its kind of kooky but me and chris noticed some time ago that op-eds they always pose with the chin in hand. Do we really walk around and hold these poses? Some do sure, but its such a strong photographic idea. When I used to work on magazines the Op-Ed photos always had to be chin poses.

So last week I used a silly avatar pic on twitter, with a chin holdin pose. lots of comments and a week of gestation later I had a dumb idea. Lets try and get other people chinholdin. Why not make it a Fun thing for Friday on Twitter.

We did pretty well, and we’re up to about 35 people this week. Next week we’ll do better. Twitter users just need to make their avatar pic a chin pose and then follow @chinposin.

Please join us for a chin and tonic some time. And now let the fun begin. Oh yeah – here is the chinposin aggregator site– there are some classics there.

The fantastic chinposin pic above, someone jumping in chin first, is our very own Joshua Porter, @bokardo.
