Smiling and photography

Why people used to look so serious in photos but now have big smiles

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2015/12/01/researchers-have-discovered-a-surprising-reason-we-smile-in-photos/

And in the comments, people ignore the article's point that "hey, even after you didn't have to sit still for several minutes for a photo, even after photos could be taken in seconds, people still didn't smile in photos for decades" and keep saying "it's because you had to sit uncomfortably long to get a picture done with Olde-Tymie Cameras."
