Except that this was clearly a superb photographer.

Ryan Reynolds has certainly grown up well.


No way, that's a dead ringer for Michael Ian Black.

dark side of the moon: I don't know anything about photography. The photographer said he developed the pictures "without proofing them first." What does that mean? Just curious.


I'm pretty sure it means developing a "proof sheet" before developing full size images. Ever see an old movie where a photographer is looking through a magnifier at a sheet of images? That's a proof sheet, film stock, chemicals, development time, all cost money so, after developing the negatives, they would shoot them on a single sheet of film stock, develop that, then decide which images should be developed full-size. Saved time and money.

This guy is basically saying it had these developed full-size (probably 8x10) and skipped the proof sheet step.

These were taken in 1983. They didn't have any way to review the images, film and developing was still expensive, and these are otherwise professional looking hi-quality shots - that was very expensive too and I'm sure the TV station couldn't afford more than one shot per person - unfortunately, some people blinked.

Fortunately for us, someone thought it was funny looking enough to save the rejects so we could all have a laugh 30 years later.

proofing is when you would take all your exposed negatives and lay them on a sheet of photo paper, expose it and then develop it. Then you would look at the tiny pictures with a loupe (magnifying device) and decide which pics you were going to print. you wouldnt want to make prints of all the negatives as making a good print can be very time consuming.

What's funny is that for those of us who remember the 80's, these are just mostly average people. A few outliers, but you wouldn't have looked twice at 90% of them walking down the street.

In 30 years, when Fark posts a link to a bunch of crazy freaks from 2012 you can laugh at them wearing your transparent denim spandex ties.

To be fair, she only showed up at the station because someone told her that's where she could find the Keymaster
