From camera obscura to camera phone

One of the best things I realized from this short movie is that the reason people didn’t smile in old photographs is because it was too much effort to hold a smile for the amount of time needed to take the photo, no wonder they were all so dead-pan! Seems a little lazy but I can imaging after 10 mins of holding a smile, it would probably look like the most disturbing photo ever (straight face wins over distressed eyes and a forced smile).
