You must dignify others in your photos.
Anyone with a smartphone has automatically become a photographer.
We are constantly documenting everything around us to most significantly share on the internet.
With these, the future is going to have vast data of the past.
We are creating history today.
The internet is a public space, and whatever we put there cannot be erased. It’s stuck.
This is why we need to be wary of the stuff we put there.
When we paste photos of others on the internet, it doesn’t have to humiliate or show them in a very vulnerable state.
Someone once shared a photo of my wife and me during a Zoom meeting.
Not the kind of shot I’d like others to see. It’s utterly embarrassing.
Now, I don’t feel comfortable in public gatherings. I never know who’ll take my photo and share it without my knowledge.
Such photos can become memes circulating around the web.
Take your time to frame your photos and get the angle and lighting correct.
And do a quick retouch to adjust the contrast, brightness and the like.
In addition, us Snapseed, a free app from Google that helps to put a professional touch on photos on devices. You don’t need to be a pro to use this app. It’s super easy.
Sometimes, you need others permission before putting their image on the internet.
Whatever you share, make sure you dignify others in your photos.
