Do you remember the last film-based camera that you owned? Now, how often did you find yourself capturing subjects that resemble these popular digital-age snapshots? Probably next to never. The website Twenty Pixels has posted this comical image of 11 very common compositions that would probably not have passed the film test for many people. These are the sorts of scenes that might only be worth taking up a sliver of space on your 8GB memory card.

Selfies, in particular, can be seen all over Facebook, alongside images of people's feet, their food, their pets in funny costumes and possessions of which the photographer is proud. Many of these digital-age snapshots find themselves on Instagram and scattered throughout other social media platforms, receiving far more views than thoughtfully framed printed pictures ever did.
