I have been entertained by Instagram photos for some time, at least some of them, and wondered if I should become an instagrammer myself. Several things made me not to. One is lack of time. It obviously takes some extra time to take, edit and upload photos to another page, in addition to this blog, to my webpage, and to my Facebook Page. In addition to my regular chores. But maybe my biggest feeling against it is the sharing. Why “give” away for free, since photos is my work and income. There are also criticism, saying Instagram is ruining photography, all the photos looks the same. But that is maybe yesterdays criticism, for here is a link to how 4 photo editors are using Instagram.
I will probably not loose anything by joining Instagram (except for time). I‘ll see if it adds anything. So a few days ago I got my own Instagram. For the moment it is just a pastime, doing some testing. And then we’ll see. I have just used my phone yet, but understand you can also upload other photos. It is probably not necessary to put those retrograde fileters, but at the moment I am seeing how they look like. What do you think? And are you on Instagram?
