Good Pictures identifies 50 of these trends that have been popular among photographers of all kinds, whether amateurs or professionals. The book’s 200 full-color illustrations include ..."   Clearly, she also talks, quite likely on Zoom and possibly to camera clubs.  https://www.kimbeil.com/ Kim Bell is an American art historian whose recent article in the NYTimes (read today) about tracking down the point of taking and the time and date of taking of a less-known Ansel Adams photograph which the man himself printed much later and included in his collection of most important images was interesting.   This book may be interesting "The rules for making “good pictures” change rapidly, just as they have ever since the earliest days of the medium....
