PHOTOGRAPHY

faces of the people who reside
in a community, and not simply
highlight a select few. " Photography as it relates to equity should
be approached gently. Through
our experience in engaging our
diverse community, we have seen
ourselves or partners rush to capture the moment and overwhelm
our diverse participants coming
out for the first time, " says Eduardo " Eddie " Campos, marketing
and communications manager at
Mountain Recreation Metropolitan District in Colorado. " My advice is to take a step back, let your
participants enjoy the moment
and take photos when appropriate. We want to encourage more to
participate through photos of this
group, but do so gently, " as you
don't want to make a spectacle nor
make anyone uncomfortable.
He adds that equity is critical to
his agency's photography, as he
and his team seek to ensure their

diverse community is represented
and feels a sense of belonging in
their community centers. " Photography plays a huge role in bringing
down stigmas and beliefs that our
spaces are only for certain groups
of people; our spaces are for everyone, " says Campos.
According to Booth, " Durham is
one of the most culturally diverse
cities in North Carolina. DPR's
mission is to provide opportunities for the entire community to
play more by connecting them to
wellness, the outdoors and lifelong
learning. To do so, we are careful to
ensure that we are equitable when
selecting images to promote our
programs, activities and events. "

Smartphones and
Photography
Today, most people forego using
a traditional camera in favor of
a convenient smartphone. When
you take a photo with a smart-

phone these days, it's usually
very high quality, especially with
these recently released models,
according to Mabon. " However, if you're using a phone that's
five years old, that's not going to
be the case. But if you've got a
phone that's been put out in the
last year or two, it's probably got
a really good camera on it with
some good resolution. "
She adds, " One of the challenges
with the smartphones is that people often take the photo with their
smartphone, but they're not exporting it correctly. You have to make
sure that you export it to your computer or send it to your email.... If
you're getting it off your iPhone,
you need to make sure that it's
set to the original quality and not
anything less. " See figure 1. Note:
Using Airdrop or when exporting on
an Android via email, it will send the
original size automatically. But if given
a choice, always go for the largest size.
