Instagram is more about personality than talent. Trust me on this. I have seen some amazing photographers with way too few followers when it comes to the work they produce versus some okay photographers who have tons of followers. Why is this? Because social media is a popularity contest. Sometimes the increased followers is because the person can write and draw a person in but sometimes they are followed because they do and say and act the way they think they are supposed to and then people follow them because they also think that’s who they are supposed to be because a bunch of celebrities told them to be that way. I’ve seen compliments and gushing on photos I barely glanced at and crickets on the same caliber, or better work, and can’t seem to wrap my mind around it. Then I realize two photographers, or more, are all commenting on each other’s posts and are most likely doing it as part of a pod. In other words much of it is contrived and scripted adoration to make each other look more important than they are. I was in a pod for a short time and I loved the artists in that pod but I felt so awkward as I wondered if they were only leaving comments because they felt they should and I quietly left. If I leave a comment on a photo of yours, whether it’s based on the photo or on the merit of your words, I’m doing so because I actually want to - not to get something in return. I hope people will do the same with me because all this facade garbage is really getting old and isn’t the world I want to be a part of.
I can’t wait until spring and some warmer, nicer weather.
Most of our days are spent inside lately. If it's not cold weather it has been brief (thankfully!) colds and viruses. So the kids are going stir crazy some days but also using their creativity with building lego creations and some drawing. Now if I can only replace the video games with more thought provoking activities. Looks like we will be stuck inside even more this weekend and into next week as a snowstorm is on it's way and temps are going to drop below zero. Someone hold me (or just send chocolate 🙂)
