Taking pictures have now become a staple of everyday life – in fact, you can’t accidentally trip over or be involved in some kind of embarrassing fracas anymore – without running the risk that someone will have taken a snap of your unfortunate moment and already posted it online – by the time you’ve had chance to dust yourself off.
The ease with which one can snap anything and everything – does mean that there is an awful lot of white noise out there…everyone, and I mean everyone with a phone and a camera – consider themselves as photographers. Of course, they have a little help along the way with various photo editing apps – but there are some photographs that not even a change of hue or focus can really make the photo into something of interest.
