Uncategorized March 18, 2020 Instagram: the worst feedback for your photography

Instagram, probably the worst feedback for your photography. Don’t choose a social platform as Instagram to share your works if you want to receive constructive suggestions. This is absolutely the wrong place to “test” your art. Don’t use “likes” or “followers” to test your capacity, this is not an indicative score. Instagram is based on stupid …
