A PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN LONDON

Portrait photographer in London

 

A step to far for Insta?

As I sit eating an omelette and listening to Drake, it's Thursday midday and I'm still racking my brain on how I can work out this new Instagram update. 

I spend a lot of time working on how I perform on Insta, I watch most stories from my followers I comment back and I have active conversations with everyone that talks to me. Yet I have lost 75% interaction on my posts. The guys over at LATER say that I need to be pushing the IGTV and stories more, but as a photographer should I be creating a video to push my stills work? 

I also heard that if you have a business account, than Insta will want you to pay for posts, once again, that's not confirmed, but it wouldn't surprise me as the dark cloud of Facebook lingers over the social media world even more. 

I'm thinking of finding some of bot or "naughty techniques" just to keep up engagement. It's not something I want to do, but if Insta is allowed to change the rules then why can't I change the way I play? 

Finally, what's everyones thoughts on VeroDayflash, Stellar or Swng? Should we all be moving away from Insta to let them know we're not happy! 

Maybe I will just Vlog full time post it all on insta! Has anyone watched my YouTube Vlogs yet? I have a new one planned and this time I'm not going to stop making them! 

Oh and if you don't follow me on Instagram follow me here and we can be friends!! 

Much love, as always
