Picture this – you’re at the reference desk, helping a customer, and something unusual happens. You want to take a photo of it and share that moment with your library’s Facebook or Instagram friends.
What do you do? Most likely, you’re not going to run back to the staff area, pull out the library’s DSLR Camera, choose an appropriate lens, poke around for the right light to attach to the camera, etc. If you did that, you would miss the moment.
I’ll guess that you would simply pull out your trusty smartphone and snap away.

- focus on one subject
- use some simple photography composition rules
- do some basic editing
- better lighting
