Instagramification…ok, so I made that one up. But…that’s what I want to talk about, making stuff up. My Instagram feed seems full of pictures that seem otherworldly…brilliant, vibrant colors, sureal lighting…if you use Instagram, I think you know what I mean! I had a traditionalist mentality for a long time, but am now appreciating the beauty and artistic expression that results.
So my pondering these days is focused on…deception? If I tweak my photos a ton, it’s obvuously unreal and art. But if I do so only mildly, like the picture here…is that being deceptive? I think it does a good job of expressing how the scene appeared to me…even if it’s not completely accurate.
