Instagram Versus Facebook
People often ask me why my Instagram feed only highlights my black and white street work. When I first got onto to Instagram, I really did not know what I was doing. So like most people I started posting color images of things I thought might be of interest. As time went on, and I did a little more research, I decided to focuses on one area of my photography that I felt Instagram could show case in a better format than Facebook. Hence, my predominant posting of black and white street images on Instagram. I really like the way Instagram shows off my work in black and white. Facebook, on the other hand plays better in color, at least in my opinion. My thought was to leave more of my environmental landscape work on Facebook, and use this format just for highlighting my landscapes. As time has gone by, I have to honestly admit that Facebook doesn't do it for me anymore. I think the bad press of selling our personal information, and my overall impression that Facebook has an aging group of users, (though personally there's nothing wrong with that, since I'm one of them) it's format leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion. Facebook’s picture posting format doesn't really do it for me. I'm aware that Facebook now owns Instagram, and I personally think that's a shame, I'm hoping they don't screw it up too much, and then I'll be looking for another social media outlet to post my work. Maybe I’ll take a look at Snap Chat, if only I can get my teenage son to show me how to use it.
