ULTIMATE INSTAGRAM GUIDE FOR MORE UPVOTES

!1sDeKQBWVc No.3080084 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
This is the end all be all to instagram threads. In it, I will write a step by step guide on how to have more people like your photos. If you are one of those super cool people on /pee/ that hate people besides your mummy seeing your photos, or hate using hashtags because your photos of homeless people are just too cool for hashtags, fuck off, this isn't for you.

Preface

The first thing to think about before even posting a photo is what is the ultimate goal?? Answer: get more followers. How do you get more followers? Answer: get seen by more people. That is the only real thought process behind this guide, so if you don't like those two answers, you can also fuck off, why are you even reading this?

I will now list out the steps as clearly as I can, and attempt to leave no questions by the end of the post

Step 1: Have good content

This should be obvious. You can't put out shit content and expect people to applaud your failure as a photographer. Your photos should represent the best of what you have to offer using your camera. But having good content doesn't just mean having good photos, it means that you must also have content that is CONSISTENT. So if you're serious about having a landscape photography Instagram page, only post landscape photography, and nothing else. Think about it from the followers perspective, they saw a cool picture you took of a lake or something and liked it enough to say "I want to see more pictures of lakes and nature just like this!!" Why the fuck would they want to see a picture of your coffee in the morning, or why would they want to see some street """"""""""photography""""""""""? Pro-tip, they don't. Keeping your content consistent will keep these people interested in your content and continue to interact. I will explain later why it's so important to have your followers continue to interact.

Does anyone want to try a thread where we post up a RAW file and see how other users would process it?

I think it might be fun. I'll start.

I want more people to see my pictures that I post on Instagram but I feel like a pretentious cunt if I use hashtags and I'd feel even more pretentious if I make a separate photography Insta, especially since I'm still pretty shit at photography, so I just post the pictures on my personal Instagram.

What hashtags do you people use for people to see your photos? Are there any hashtags you can use so people can give you constructive criticism or anything like that? Do I just have autism?

Can we skip the "Sony sucks" and dive into the technical aspect of this. I really want to understand this. Why is this still happening? Generation after generation and they can't fix this problem? Why? Why doesn't any other brand have this issue? Why won't Sony ever take steps to truly fix it? So far all they've done is updates to increase max temp rating, but that just leads to a camera that gets too hot to hold in your hands. Couldn't a simple change to the body composition fix this? Or even a small surface area increase. I don't get it.

I really wanted to get into photography, but my budget wasn't very high. I bought a sony a350 from craigslist, and have been using it the past few months but have begun to feel self conscious. I feel like I'm shooting on some outdated piece of shit that is ultimately going to waste my time. I understand high megapixels are really only important when printing but I still feel like shooting on a ten year old camera just isn't right.

tl;dr can decent photos be taken with an old dslr and why should I/when should I invest in a better camera?

Let's go to Belfast

No.3082218 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Hi /p/

So I went to Northern Ireland when I had a few days off last month, and created a small body of work about the remaining peace walls separating Loyalist Protestant and Republican Catholic neighborhoods. There are about 100 of these designated "Interface Points" in the six counties, with the majority of them being in Belfast.

I'm currently finalizing my edit, dusting the negs, and shopping it around to a few editors I know, either as a printable story or as a precursor to some more projects I'm hoping to produce in the summer.

C&C welcome. I will try to add captions and pertinent info as I go.

This image was in North Belfast, in a Loyalist area. My caption info notes are elsewhere so I can't tell you exactly what street, but this is relatively new construction (since 98), and the wall has been built up from a lower concrete structure into this. Often the walls are built in this fashion, with each addition getting thinner and serving different purposes. The highest points are almost always this type of fencing, which sits high enough to prevent bottles or balloons full of paint from being thrown but eliminates the danger of collapse by allowing airflow.

So, let me ask for some help.
I can't take a decent selfie, never.
Every single time I turn out to be weird, and live i'm not that bad.
Any tips on how to take at least one single decent photo of myself?
