Portrait Photography Session as Directed by Ellen DeGeneres

For a photographer, doing the same old routine for portrait sessions all day can become a bit tedious and repetitive. That’s why Ellen DeGeneres decided to spice things up a little bit and took over a portrait studio located inside of a JC Penney’s. Because Ellen is so recognizable, she sent one of her writers to the studio to pose as a photographer. Ellen then directed the photo shoot remotely using an ear piece. The result is some seriously awkward—but hilarious—photo sessions with some very unsuspecting customers. Take a look at the shoot here:

Pretty amusing stuff. While the customers in the video seem to take the photographer’s zaniness in stride, I imagine not all clients would take to it so graciously.
