Thats a great question. I think it’s important for photographers of any kind if thats the kind of following they want, I’ve seen some photographers on there with tens of thousands of ‘followers’ so it’s a huge platform to have your work seen in your viewers hands. At the minute I post more to instagram because of it’s quickness and the layout is nice and simple for the phone format. I havent enjoyed uploading to Flickr since the layout changed over a year ago, whoever designed it and keeps making it worse really needs to stop and re-think their career. It’s lost the community feel and most of the people I followed on there have stopped using it which is a shame.
Thank you, I just use the standard lens I found it with. Its a Helios 44mm and it’s pretty dreamy!
