The Lurking Projector is the Worst Person on Instagram for Photographers

You’re most likely very familiar with who the lurking projector is on Instagram.

If you’ve been following this site for a while, you know about my gripes on Instagram. In fact, they’re my gripes on social media. We were partially built on it, but I abhor it. It’s still a sizeable part of our traffic. But gauging how big it truly proves difficult due to how Algorithms interact with Google analytics. So today I’m talking less about photographers per se and more about the business side of it. It’s about the shallow, self-centered smoke and mirrors account that pretends not to be. You’re probably one of them. And if you are, then you’re the worst. You probably complain about how Instagram isn’t real and yet you’re just as awful. In fact, let’s just call this a rant.

Please Don’t Be a Reckless, Stupid Photographer

Photographers please listen up.

This post isn’t necessarily meant to talk down to photographers; specifically the ones who have joined only in the past few years, but it’s more about sharing some sage advice from a calm standpoint. The truth is we live in a world where people love to risk their lives and sneak into places for Instagram likes much to the support from people who don’t care about your well being, and that we also live in a world where photographers sexually harass women. Both of these things give photographers very bad names and label all of us in a way that changes what people think of us. The honest truth (if you can seriously be that real with yourself for a moment) is that you’re not sorry and you’re not considerate until you get caught or until you’re at the center of it in some way or another simply because the internet makes it so simple for us to mentally disassociate from something by moving on to the next thing.

Review: Lens Distortions (Photoshop Actions and Apple iOS App)

Lens Distortions arguably solves the problems I've been having with photography for a while now: a clinically engineered lack of character into lenses that results in a sterile image which therefore doesn't make me want to purchase a product. That's a mouthful for sure, but it's true. While many photographers these days would prefer a clinically clean look where they can then add in their own modifications to the image in post, I'm not like that. There's a generation of photographers that truthfully don't like sitting down at computers because we do everything on a tablet or a phone instead. And for those photographers on both sides of the line, Lens Distortions makes a lot of sense.
