For the past number of months I have been part of an Instagram Megapod which operates through Slack and aims to help users boost their engagement, profile and help users beat the Instagram algorithm we all hate so much.
There is nothing quite like the buzz of street photography, really that is where my heart is when it comes to shooting new photos. However for many people, there is an overriding factor that can hold them back: fear.
Everyone wants to have a drone these days and for arial photography and video footage – well there is no easier time than now to get up into the sky and grab those shots.
“Should I buy a DSLR? Is the camera on my phone not enough now? Everyone keeps talking about how good cameras are getting on phones so is the age of the DSLR dying?”
Lets cut straight to the chase, watermarks suck shit. The debate goes on and on regarding whether you should watermark your photos or not. I have actually had people reach out to me in the past genuinely concerned someone could steal my work because I uploaded a photo without a watermark.
Are you a photographer or an aspiring photographer? Yes? Well in that case you should be working on some form of online presence. There are so many platforms to choose from now, so which is the best one to show off your photos and to catch people’s attention? Here are three I would highly recommend.
Do you know what one of my biggest gripes is with Twitter? The whole follow back and follow for a follow thing which is rampant over the platform. It has even become a “recommended tactic” to grow on Instagram now. Forget posting high quality content, just follow as many people as you can and see who follows you back.
I know, I know. Some of you may cringe at the idea of taking photos of your food in a restaurant or a bar and posting it on Instagram for likes and comments. Just enjoy it instead!
I’m a number of things, broadly I simply tend to refer to myself as a creative or creator at this point. It allows me to encompass several of the different things I do on a professional level be it writing, blogging, content for business, personal content or photography.
