Default Instagram or Facebook?

Independently of OPF which has a different purpose (at least for me…), I opened last April an Instagram account, just to see ...
With time I find that it is quite complementary to Fb.
Less interaction with friends / followers but an easier overall vision of the photographer's work ...
Globally they both are useful for my "brand" recognition…
So, I keep both!
Follow me!

LoL! LoL! LoL!
They are auto squared by Instagram, but if you click on a "thumbnail" you'll see the original framing…
All above are screen prints of my Insta's wall.

PS Didn't you note that I have MF Pentax 645Z? ; )
BTW most of pics post on my Instagram are uploaded from my computer.

Nicolas,

I have never used instagram. Am at the moment pestered each day with requests for "links". Linked in is the worst. Why on earth they find something about me worth linking to, I do not fathom! Facebook are at least some folk I know.

I shall have to explore instagram!

I guess one doesn't have to win "The Voice", get a Nobel Peace Prize or massacre folk to become "famous" if one can only get enough "followers"!

I gave up on getting a free trip to Sweden! Not even a hint, LOL!

So at least I can say I am a good friend of "Nicolas de Bordeaux"! That at least will get me into a winery!

Asher

Hi Antonio,
you cannot load directly from your computer on your insta account, you must use a web service like Gramblr (there are others, all free).

Asher,
I am not very experienced at Instagram, but AFAIK (but I don't use Insta thru the smartphone app), it behaves quite differently to Fb…
i.e. You cannot invite directly someone to follow you… all you can do is to follow that person and get his/her
attention.

I don't understand your sentence about Sweden nor the requests of links!

When one is a young competitive 24 hr a day devoted scientist, there always is the fantasy that ones next discovery will be that breakthrough that will change science forever. That is the hidden dream of most researchers. This was my reference to going to Sweden!

My work did not reach that peak but it was exciting and a most wonderful drive and obsession to unlock secrets of nature.

As to links, if you are on "Linked in" or in "Facebook" one has to deal with requests to link to them and be friends in a never ending stream of requests. But why would anyone want to take time to connect with someone they know nothing about?

Take care Nicolas.

Hi Fahim

.Instagram and Facebook?
just another way of (pseudo) existing…
But also a way to "brand" my name… After all I admit that I am a commercial photog, the more my name is known (branded), the best I can sell my work…
It often happen that I meet people (during shows, fairs etc.) that know me and my work, but so far I never heard of them before. Strange feeling (and a little piece of pride if you ask me!
That comes from the photo credit in magazines and Facebook as well!
