Natural was the pose, as long as natural was acceptable in black and white images. And acceptable it was in February 1900 for simplicity of use by adults or youth and for pricing - $1.00 for the Brownie camera, $.15 for 6-exposure film, and $.40 for film processing. The snapshot was here to stay when 245,000 of these Brownies were sold in 1900!
