Let Me Take a Selfie

Hey everyone! I debated about whether or not to post this because I wasn’t sure if it was artsy enough but I figured this is my blog and I thought it was interesting, so here it is. I read an article recently about camera that were installed in a koala enclosure in Australia. What really captured my interest, besides the cute koalas, was the idea that these cameras were used to take selfies of the animals. Basically the animal would have to approach the camera and get within its frame and a sensor would go off to capture the image and viola! The cutest selfie!

What stood out about images is how interesting they came out and how they look like a photographer took them. I thought it was a nice way to have the koalas engage in the process and have a more natural photo. Apparently the koalas liked the idea too since there’s plenty of photos. We’ve been talking a lot about the presence of social media within our world and selfies are a large part of that too. They allow us to capture what we are doing in the exact moment we are doing it, regardless of how ridiculous we look. That concept can be seen with these photos too as we are able to see the koalas explore and capture their personalities in the moment without human interaction. As always I have my favorites below but I’ll link the rest incase you need more! Until next time!
