Obama hands off the presidency to Trump — and the burdens that go with it

It is hard to recall another inauguration in which the television images of an incoming and outgoing president so vividly conveyed the psychic drama of the moment.
As Barack Obama and Donald Trump made their way Friday to the stage on the West Front of the Capitol, their body language spoke to an unimaginable burden being lifted from one set of shoulders and falling on another.

They made their way beside each other through the hallways of the Capitol, with Obama occasionally patting Trump on the back. Or was that, perhaps, a nudge forward?

Before Trump emerged into an overcast day and took in the crowd that awaited on the Mall, the incoming president paused. He has treated the weeks since his election as a triumphal victory lap; now, another race begins — one to secure his place in history with actual achievements.

3 Tips for Better Smartphone Pics

tip1

1 KEEP YOUR LENS CLEAN

==========
Your phone lives in a pocket or a purse…. as a result it often gets dirty or smudged. Fingerprints, sunscreen, dust or grease can get on the lens can really lower the quality of your photos. Always wipe the lens off before you shoot. A lens cloth is a great addition to your pocket, but even a soft shirt will help.

2 THE “ZOOM” IS WORTHLESS

==========
Most phones simply use a digital zoom. This means when you pinch to zoom you’re usually just scaling and cropping the image inside the camera. Instead of zooming, try walking. Or get a new lens!

3 A STEADY SHOT IS SHARP

==========
If your camera is moving, you’ll may get a blurred image. This is particularly true when shooting at night or in low light. Try bracing the camera for stability. It could be as simple as tucking your elbows into your body or try out a new mini tripod.
