We’re excited to kick off The Small Screen Series, a five-volume snapshot series from Collective member Samantha Geraghty! Every Thursday for the next five weeks, we’ll be posting a new installment from this series in our weekly Snapshots from the Collective slot. Stay dialed in!
Digital technology has immersed us in a world of instant gratification. We share our real lives through digital appearances, without thinking too much about it. I just go by my day to day, snap a photo of what I consider to be “pretty” and share it online. By the time you know it, you have over 1000 photos, carefully edited as if you were some sort of photographer. Well no, I’m no photographer and I don’t pretend to be one. But when an Instagram photo makes it to the front page of The New York Times, you realize that mobile apps are a big player in media. You don’t always need a flash camera to have an eye for nice pictures.
