Nooooooo! The word Selfie now becomes an ABC sitcom
With smartphones in almost every hand, and ever-improving cameras and ever-improving camera apps in most smartphones out there, photography is now front and center, in varying ways, in most people's lives. This opens up photography to millions of new people. Not only that, but people are introduced to photography at a younger age than people did during the stand-alone camera era. As with all things, when the flood gates open, there are risks, and some are worried about the dumbing down of photography.
These worriers will point out that the general population is obsessing with "selfies" and "photo bombing" instead of learning more about photography. Fast forward to now, we have a new "Nooooooooooooooo!" moment, the now official word "Selfie" makes more inroads as ABC is picking up a new comedy pilot with that very name. The comedy is not photography-related. Via The Verge and Inside TV.
