Photo friends - any recommendations for other photography sharing apps? Rant follows:
I agree with the general languid sentiment in the Instagram air - it used to be easy to connect with people around the world over photography and travel. But now it feels like community growth is exclusively delegated to narcissistic accounts that peddle discount codes for watches. I used to be content ignoring these accounts when they showed up in my explore tab, but now Instagram features them in a new “recommended for me” section in my feed. I’m OK with ads but this has sort of crossed a line of annoyance for me.
I want to go back to being inspired to shoot by photographers from all walks of life over epic landscapes, exotic travel destinations and awesome portrait work. Hence my call for any recommendations of other sites where this type of engagement is still encouraged.
This is me at work in Nepal with @radiatinghope 📽 Taken by my friend @joelforsmanphotography, who is an amazing photographer. Check out his feed if you want to, it's full of adventure and outdoor stuff 😁
