The Advantages of Instagram
Instagram is as popular as it is because it’s so efficient when it comes to photo sharing. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it’s convenient thanks to the way users can maintain their accounts via their SmartPhones. When an interface is this simple and user-friendly, people are that much more likely to actually use it on a frequent basis.
If you’re new to photography and looking to get more feedback as far as the quality and impact of some of your shots, then Instagram can give you that. It’s also a great way to get used to sharing your work with others, as well as learn what does or doesn’t work when it comes to what you do. That’s an essential experience for every photographer.
If you’re not quite ready to enter your work in contests or look into opportunities to have it shown in local galleries, Instagram can be a great way to get your work out there and seen. It feels a lot less intimidating and it’s a great way to start building a following. When you are ready to start selling prints and services, you’ll already have an audience in place that you can market to.
