Adventure photography and the casual observer

  1. Really interesting post. I have been thinking about this a lot recently as well. Personally, I have noticed that on hikes or trips, I become extremely focused on getting that one gold photo shot if I know that there is an online audience for it. I worry that adventure photography on social media might encourage people to focus only on that one epic vista. I worry it will make hikers less mindful.

    1. Great point! I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this online as well, people even risking safety for the image. I feel the same way and I’m even guilty of doing the same. I do try to be more mindful when I’m outdoors. Do you feel like it detracts from your overall experience?
