I second this question. I was very tempted by D due to the mention of village people, housemaids, husbands having to sit for the photos.

Hi @Ryan-Mahabir and @tomgbean,
To see why (E) is correct, take a look at lines 24-34, where the discussion of sitting for a picture occurs. We can infer from this discussion that because the subjects of these photographs are "trying desperately hard to sit still," it takes a while for these pictures to be taken, which is what (E) states.
(A) is wrong because there is no textual evidence for it in the passage. The passage doesn't talk about photographs that document contemporary life, and indeed, the fact that these were referred to as "fancy-subject" pictures implies that "regular-subject" pictures were also to some extent taken.
(D) is incorrect because it goes too far. Yes, the passage states that Cameroon used housemaids and nieces and husbands and village children as her subjects. However, we cannot infer from this one artist's use of normal people that no professional models existed. Hope this helps!
