Mandi explained stability while taking pictures.
We broke off into groups of 4 with each member taking pictures of 4 different settings in various locations. Minnows were instructed to take a photo of each object at "landscape pose", and one at "side up". Except the last being taken level and one taken not level. All Minnows really concentrated and got some good shots.
