The #noshittyphotos project was developed by Mimi Chan and Utsavi Jhaveri, recent graduates from Miami Ad School. The school’s extensive program allowed them to travel to lots of different cities, where they noticed one thing they all had in common; that tourists take really bad photos. So they decided to do something about it.

They created a stencil and spray-painted yellow signs featuring feet and the words “Place feet, point and click” at tourist spots around New York and San Francisco. These provide people with the best camera angles of nearby sights and landmarks so they can take better photos.

The project hopes to eliminate bad tourist photography and make it easier for people to get that one great shot. You can learn more about it by watching the video below:
