As an art form, photography isn’t that old, at least compared to painting or sculpting, but it’s changed enormously over its relatively brief history, not only due to technological advances but also in how we perceive its role, and that of the photographer.

At its inception in the 1830s and 40s, photography was, due to its scientific origins, considered “apolitical,” according to the website for “Exquisite Reality: Photography and the Invention of Nationhood, 1851–1900” a new online exhibit at Stanford University’s Cantor Arts Center. The exhibit explores how early photography was in fact used extensively as a political tool, looking at how photographers made artistic decisions that reveal their own interpretations of reality.

Tripods can add an enormous degree of flexibility to your photography, but buying the right one for your needs can sometimes be a confusing process.

There’s a large amount of jargon and technical terms associated with camera stands, so we’ll explain a little bit more about why they’re used, what they’re made of and what to look for when buying one, as well as the models that came out top in our testing.

In a year spent stuck inside, twiddling our thumbs as the walls slowly close in, I’ve found comfort in a few essentials: copious amounts of chocolate, FaceTime with mum, and trans+ art.
