The Shifting Lens of Photography

Photography has evolved greatly from the early days of Kodak, to iPhones and Instagram. In the age of social media, sharing and crowdsourcing have been key to reshaping photo journalism – is it for better or worse? Join us at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 15 at NBC News in Rockefeller Center for a lively discussion. This ONA NYC monthly meetup is also part of Social Media Week:  http://socialmediaweek.org/newyork/

    I learned a lot at this event. As an amateur shutterbug, I knew very little (if anything) about Instagram until last night; the panelists' praise has sparked my curiosity about it. I enjoyed hearing from them (s/o to my former colleague Jim Collins), especially James Estrin -- I sense I can learn quite a few things from him (LOL).

    substantive, insightful.
    gave me a lot to think about, and some ideas for the future.
    more diversity on the panel would have been good, and more focus on the future.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
