Why Does Basically Everyone Do This V-Finger Peace Thing in Photos?

“Smartphone cameras have advanced to where they are high resolution, and so if the fingertips are in view and take up a good part of the image and are not occluded and the lighting is good, then, yes, you can probably process the image with the right software and get a fingerprint that you could match against a fingerprint database,” says Kevin W. Bowyer, Schubmehl-Prein Family Professor at the University of Notre Dame and the editor-in-chief of IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior and Identity Science.
