Photography 101: Connect

In today’s world, we’re more connected than ever. How will you capture our theme, connect, through your lens?

Tag this post appropriately. Photography is a sure bet, and photo101 — our official course tag — is a great way to connect with other participants.However, don’t over-tag! Between five to fifteen tags per post (or a combination of tags and categories) is good practice. – The Daily Post

We are connected easier to those around us.  But although we’re more connected somehow we are farther apart.

For sure, everyday, connecting with someone is through our computer, our tablet, our phones.  I mean, I couldn’t take that picture up there without my smart phone.  Its how we connect through social media. Call me old school but nothing quite beats seeing your friends in person at a coffee shop, for a human to human interaction, although its harder with our busier lives its really refreshing.

If not, the connection doesn’t work the same way.  Reason for the feet.  It connects us to the world  when we take that first step out 🙂
