nomophobia : fear of being without access to a working cell phone
As I go through my archive of images this afternoon, I have noticed how many frames I have shot where the people I am working with are on their phones. Sending a text message. Creating a story for Snapchat and Instagram. A quick behind the scenes shot from our shoot. Checking what everyone else is doing. Judging people based off what they choose to share with the world. Keeping up with the local gossip.
Put your phone down. Turn off your notifications. Look at someone while you are talking with them. Quit looking for that instant gratification fix. Just fucking look up and live.
