Insta Portfolio Review

Aloha, photography is my life with my wife along side myself. What I ask of you all is to critique my work. All photos are shot in RAW, and edited with the usual LR. Head on over to my IG: chapman_photo and critique my work. All suggestion are taken as knowledge. So don't be afraid of being harsh. Reason why I post here for advice. Thanks

Why I'm not a good at PODS

I used to be a member of the #leadinglinemonday team on Google+. It was one of the more popular themes and as many as 4 of us would try and make sure we visited and commented on every post shared to the theme every Monday. While I really enjoyed it for a while, I started to get burned out when I found myself commenting on sub par photos of...

Starting a Small Online Business

My name is John and I'm trying to start a small online business, working at increasing my overall exposure. I've created an Internet site and have been trying to promote exposure through the use of Instagram. Needless to say, It's definitely a slow process building up followers. I would appreciate any comments on my images and or advice on...

Pod for lighting geeks like me!

I've been toying with the idea of starting a pod that focuses on lighting. Would that be something that people would be interested in? I love sharing how I got the my shot and I want to connect with other people who are as passionate about lighting as I am. So if you're out there, hit me up! You can fine me on The Insta @readylightmedia.

Instagram Pods

I'm new to Instagram and don't even know what a pod is. Could someone explain and possibly consider adding me or even following? I'm not really sure how to maximize it as a learner, but i really want to connect with others.

Adding Curated Hashtags to Instagram Posts Automatically

Hi Instagrammers,

Adding proper and relevant hashtags to our Instagram posts can be a pain, and so I found out a way to add some curated hashtags to a post without switching from the Instagram app.

This however is only applicable for Instagram for Android.

To do this, you need to have this app installed - https://play....

Hey everyone !

Instagram deleted me for no reason

Has anyone else had the unfortunate experience of their Instagram account just vanishing? It sounds ridiculous but that is exactly what happened to mine. My username was Onelittletaste and then yesterday after uploading an image my account just simply did not exist anymore. The whole thing was deleted like it had never been. No warning, not...

Drop in engagement

Might just be me, but has anyone noticed a significant drop in engagement in the last week or so? I'm aware of the shadowblocking issue with some hashtags, and (according to the shadow block checker), my posts are "safe".

Impact of new Instagram Business profiles

Does anyone have any experience so far, positive or negative, with the newly added Instagram business account option? I run two accounts, one for my freelance photography business (~6k followers), and for my "day job" (16k). My day job account brings us a LOT of our business and attention, and I'm nervous about messing with it. I know I'll...

Hashtag management

What tools/approaches have you found to work for managing your hashtags? I have been using the TFL Pro app, but it is super buggy. What I do like is it let's me save collections of tags and counts the tags in each collection. Anything like that out there?


Instagram Picture Selection Dilemma

Hi there!

I am an amateur photographer living in London. My main occupation is doing a Masters degree (clinical research) at Imperial College London, but I do some freelance work from time to time (events), mainly thanks to the jobs being advertised through the facebook page of my university's photographic society.

So I have this...

Any social networks worth the time alongside Instagram?

Hi, pretty new to promoting my work over social media. I've been putting my efforts into Instagram for the last while and am happy where things are going. I'm wondering though if anyone thinks any of the other networks are worth the time - Google+, Flickr, 500px etc. etc.

I don't really have the time to maintain a bunch of different...

I'd love some advice

I'd love if it I could get some critique on what I'm doing right/wrong from some more experienced instagram users.

I've never been super into social networks so that's probably my first hindrance.

I know that I should be posting more often for sure but aside from that I'm trying m best to tag and do what I can but there just doesn...
