What Zoom And Photography Have In Common

What Zoom And Photography Have In Common by @BarbaraDelinsky #Zoom #video #COVID19

Have you ever looked at a family photo, really looked at it, and wondered why various members pose the way they do – where they stand vis à vis the group, whether their arms are around others’ shoulders or around themselves, whether their heads are inclined toward their kin or away?

Why I Hate New Year’s Resolutions

When was the last time you made a New Year’s resolution you actually kept? Think about it. And be honest. What resolution have you made in, say, the last five years that you’ve actually seen all the way through? If you’re anything like me, you’re stuttering, trying to come up with one.
