vertical corpse
 n.— «Most of the time a photojournalist, myself included, will take the expected shots. If it is a basketball game, it is safe to assume an armpit will appear on the back of the newspaper the following publication day. If it is a meeting, a “vertical corpse” (as they are called by photographers who dislike such dull images) will appear in the paper.» —“Photo column: A pleasant surprise” by Ryan Rendleman in Southern Illinois University Carbondale Daily Egyptian Mar. 5, 2008.
