Perfect pictures every time?

Some say that every single picture taken on the moon is perfect; as if taken by a professional photographer. And yet they had their helmets on so it would be impossible to look through the viewfinder. So how can this be?

  

The simple answer is in several parts. The first three are practice, practice, practice! The training included a course in photography, and were given cameras to practice with; identical to the ones that would be used on the moon without a viewfinder. The next answer is very simple too. Not all the pictures were perfect at all. Would you publish in a magazine, book or newspaper any of the following...?
