Most are just everyday fishermen with a nice fish and wanted to share a picture. How many times have we seen someone say " caught a nice one today" and the next post is "where's the picture." As if we don't believe him/her...h2l

So, a guy takes a pic of a fish and he's holding it out in front of him? What do you want, for him to hold it behind him or stuff it in his jacket? You hold it out front to show it off. Some times a guy might brag it up a bit but yeah, that happens. How many 14" bass slowly worked it's way up to a 16" bass? I mean I've never done it... I'm a fisherman, I neeeever lie about how big a fish was ;)

my favorite way to take a pic id from below subject a bit.  camera looking up slightly looks best to me.

most fish are held out a bit.  you can tell when its a true "strait arm" to make it look like something its not though.

Yep like I said you can't fool another angler.

What I don't get is when someone has an impressive fish and has to make it look even bigger which starts to make some question their credibility. I gave someone slack for that on the ice shanty forum and got grief for it even though I said I believed the fish was every bit as large as they said it was. They were yellow perch and it was as if they had a special lenses to exaggerate their size.

Taxid - you kinda hit the nail on the head here. A lot (if not most) of folks blame it on the guy holding the fish and having their arms held out. Yes, this happens no doubt but you would be surprised how often its the person taking the picture that can also control the outcome of the photo, regardless of how the angler is holding the fish. Give your camera to a fisherman and he will make it look big, but it will be noticeable and people will pick it apart, no doubt. Give that camera to a pro photographer and it will be much harder to pick apart. The key is the lenses and understanding when to use them like you mentioned as well as all the little details to get "the shot". Its a crazy game.

I always hold the fish closer to the camera. I want a picture of the fish, not me. If i want to prove the size of a fish I take a pic on a bump board.

Bingo! I often take pics of my fish in the net, sometimes one hand just to hold it still while in the water. But then itís nice when thereís another person to take a pic for you. Then again Iím mostly thinking about trout and even big panfish, I hardly ever take a pic of bass any more unless itís really above my average size. Or the only fish after a long day.

Wouldn't you have to step back a step or two so that the fish would be in the picture??? ;D

This thread really took a live on of its own for a post and meme that was just supposed to be funny!

Btw has anyone noticed that conversely pictures can make fish look smaller especially if you don't have something for reference next to it?
