    APUGers on Instagram

    Any APUGers on Instagram? We should have a hashtag. #apug is mostly, well, pugs.

    Anyways, my username here is the same there. It's mostly iphone snaps but some film.

    No offense but this really made me laugh. I might put a phone ( turned off, stashed in the back somewhere ) in my jeep someday in case I get stuck, now that there are no phone booths anywhere. Maybe, someday, I keep telling myself it would be smart... GET OFF MY LAWN


    PS Just ignore me. I don't own a cell phone and I've never even looked at instagram, so I have no idea whatsoever what I'm talking about! Still chuckling though about APUGers on instagram.

    "When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

    Same username there as here. I get more hits on my imported film shots than anything I take with the phone...

    It's what it is, a flow of daily pics of low resolution, consumed or rejected instantly. Still it's a sort of "outreach" activity for an analog/hybrid photographer like me. As Fixcinater says, the analog stuff will draw more attention than the digital stuff. I get many questions from especially younger people who would like to jump on the analog train and in some cases I managed them to take the first step. We're all on a mission, right?
    I'm exposed_material on Instagram, btw

    My problem with instagram, twitter, facebook and other similar sites is: you get your result, you get the likes, followers, positive comments and the thrills from it. Fast result that gives ok looking pixels. But this pleasure is short lasting. And on the end it cost me more and more time and keeps me away from the thing I should do: make some prints. So I don't have any accounts on those sites any more. For me it is always the same: I get back what I put into. Fast result - fast fading.

    Of course this is only me - I am not saying everybody should do as I do .
