Blog Prompt #7
In a single day I saw photographic images pretty much EVERYWHERE. I saw images while shopping, while driving, as well as in my own home. To me, it seems that portraits on both Facebook and the news seek to present their subjects as a little more 'glamorous' than they really are. Facebook users take images to impress their friends and live up to societal standards. The news wants to present a certain image of people to maintain viewers and ratings. I feel that images put out by the news tell more of a story since that it the purpose of it. Facebook images have more of a face value intent meaning they don't seek to tell much of a story, they're more just to look at.
