The online world has increasingly become addicted to taking pictures of everyday life and events and posting them online for the world to see.

Cameras can be pretty much considered as regular household equipment nowadays. Cheap but decent digital cameras and prosumer shooters are everywhere; even the professional-grade DSLRs are now affordable to many.
