Video of the Week: "How Photography Is Affecting Our Brains"

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about selfies this week after listening to Craig Detweiler speak as part of Calvin College’s January Series. This week’s video continued that thinking:

Here’s what I’m wondering:

  • One man states, “Selfies are sometimes like a representation of what you want to look like, the best version of you.” Do you agree with this claim?

  • Have you ever used an app like FaceTune? Why or why not?

  • How do apps like FaceTune change how you look through an Instagram feed?

  • What do you think about how noses change with close range photos?

  • Should people take selfies? Why or why not?

  • What would eye-tracking software show about how you choose an image to take?
