What Ever Happened to Photography - and Photographers?

"I have more than a million followers on twitter."

"I have a gazillion+ hits on a Google+ picture"

"My facebook fan page is liked by thousands of people around the world."

More and more, I am hearing these types of comments. Same with you?

I think there is a tendency for some photographers to get too hung up with social media - and to forget about the art and craft of photography - the magic of capturing and sharing an image.

I'd like to hear your take. Leave a comment if you like.

P.S. I photographed this man in a train station in India. Eye contact makes the picture for me.
