A very good read this article on Fstoppers by Danette Chappell
One reason I’m moving my internet photography away from Facebook and to the open internet.
There is a lot more truth on the Internet than you think. One just has to read beyond the headlines and sometimes connect the dots.
Facebook is an artificial environment. Yeah, I use it every day I’m around it, I keep people entertained with my latest brain farts, but the photography?
Facebook is unfulfilling for this photographer. I don’t care about likes. I care about good photographs. I post too many photos with the intention of getting likes. I don’t show you much of the strange stuff on Facebook because when I do, nobody likes it.
Every so often, I feel I have the change my mindset. Mental cleansing. Cerebral enema, purge the Facebook red meat from my photographic colon.
Crude but effective.
Art isn’t always pretty.
