I realize this has become an Instagram world. But these images are not fuzzy or filtered with technology other than me learning how to push and pull the Smart phone aperture (I remember such experiments from the darkroom days of mine).
Light does its own job. Consider these images as selfies in a James Franco world. Doesn't Mr. Franco know every image you take is a selfie--"person" present in the frame or not. Each frame is a reflection of the maker.
