In past articles, we have highlighted that technology is a science applied to problem-solving. It provides the human being with tools. These allow them to meet needs. In addition to this, it can be mentioned that current technology is mixed with a series of artistic aspects, which lead it to leverage the development of new expressions, whether electronic or virtual artistic. And in this case photography is one of its main protagonists.
The concept of photography is associated with capturing images through any device that can do so, with smartphones, digital cameras, tablets, but photography goes beyond the simple fact of capturing images, it contains techniques and a historical context that are necessary to understand to give it the true meaning to this complex art.
Educate ourselves under the motto of “new normal”
The confinement measures designed to stop the outbreak of COVID-19 in the world reformed the way we communicate, work or study and even how we socialize and exercise. A large part of the population was forced to migrate to “virtuality” in order to continue their daily lives. Staying at home 24 hours a day for several months is not easy for humanity, safeguarding ourselves in our homes. It means adapting to a different way of working, studying, exercising and even celebrating with our loved ones.
A new way to educate our interests
