What do you prefer and what is your advice to me, please let me know.
A reflection from my time on Instagram is that a lot of following action is made with the single purpose to get followers and the remove the one you just followed ASAP.
Don’t know what people want to achieve with this, does it look better to have many followers and follow few, are you looking better or more important or what is it?
In my eyes it is selfish and disrespectful and only shows that you are uninterested to learn from others and not understand that there is a lot of brilliant people and photographers out there and that you have a lot to learn from them.
So – stop trying to look important an start share and learn from others this way you will grow as a person and as photographer.
