Covid pandemic dominates media and our lives on all levels. Photographer community takes it devastated too. The economic effects among photography businesses are impossible to predict and the way out is hard to see for anyone.
It happens more and more often during photographing various events that someone is disturbed by the clicking sound of a DSLR camera and people ask photographers to turn off the sound. The photographer often just blinks not finding the words to reply. Clicking sound is not just an effect with a DSLR camera just like with mobile phones and compact cameras. It is an integral part of the function. Many photographers however has no clue about even DSLR cameras can be silenced. More than that it is very much advised in certain situations. If it is not possible than even more routine and knowledge is required to avoid disturbing others. And no, simple because you “have to” take photos doesn’t allow you to disturb others.
You cannot imagine it how many cases this can help you out of trouble if you have your name on your belongings. It is a crazy simple solution that can save you from great losses!

This can be sene not only in the images of GoPro and other action cameras (where it almost cannot be avoided) or the use of snap on lenses, but in everyday photo stories line up a growing number of fisheye shots – often without any reason.
I met more of these lists on the web. I even wrote some of them and probably I will do so in the future too. This time I don’t want to list movies or documentaries about photographers. I rather try to collect some of the movies whose visual wold, picture style or other visual solutions can inspire photographers.
I meet this question more and more often. People tend to ask it next to photos and other things shared in social media. They not only ask for the likes or thank it in advance but they try to provoke it: “how many likes this picture is worth?”
