say cheese? win cheese!

food photography by dana rogers photography - brie

ever wonder why people ask you to “say cheese” when you pose for a photograph? it’s mainly because your mouth mimics a grin when you say the words. and, it’s so silly that its likely to inspire a smile.

i tried researching the history of the “say cheese” and i still don’t really know how this nutty custom started. apparently, the tradition has spread across the globe. in korea, people say kimchi. in bulgaria its kele, which means cabbage. in Denmark, the words mean “say orange.”

do you say cheese when posing for a photo? if not, what do you say?
