Photography is an invaluable medium that allows us to capture the incandescent beauty of the outside world, something many of us haven't seen in... well, a hot minute. Global pandemics will do that.

So many people post pictures on Facebook with very advanced cameras, eg from iPhones. Alas, many do not crop their photos, the horizon is not horizontal, there are dark shadows … Some people do not even know the camera can face outwards: I notice so many selfies! I think a gentle article from Jack Schofield on how not to disappoint your friends with holiday pics would be wonderful.
