I’m on Instagram
I’ve joined Instagram. The key point about this social network is that it’s all about photos: that’s what you post, every time. So it’s the obvious place for a photographer to be. As Scott Kelby asks: ‘how can you not be there?’
For me, there were two reasons. The first was practical: my old phone was just too slow, outdated and underpowered for the Instagram app. Secondly, my impression was that it’s inhabited almost exclusively by vain, selfie-snapping celebrities and their wannabee followers. Having joined, I can see that many high-profile photographers are present and active, sharing great images with their legions of Instagram followers.
