Photography as digital storytelling #ds106

What is photography?

sharing perspective in and through space and time

stopping time. and sharing that frame of reference.

cheap. fast. out of control.

easy. mobile. personal. pervasive.

social

amateur vs. pro (fun vs. work?)

photography as mindful seeing

relationship between photographer and subject

documentary vs. art (how do you define "art"?) photos of same(ish) subject over time eg. bow river valley

technofetishism - really easy to get distracted by focus on gear rather than photography

immerse yourself in photography. Lots of it.
