Ahhh then you should be safe here because I doubt anybody here is your friend!!! LOL, LOLI don't feel the need to show all my friends, all my imagery.
Agree; makes me wonder how many people have "wall hangers" instead of hundreds (thousands?) buried in a computer. Me? No social media at all, grand kids bugging me to try FB. No thanks. My office walls loaded with 11x14's some B/W, most Ektachromes from inter negatives. How many know what an inter negative is? Admit, this was digital Nikon D5000.I am very specific where I post. I seriously don't care about the likes but do appreciate them.
My FB page posts are of family stuff and then the other non family stuff is posted in specific, private forums that interest me. I don't feel the need to show all my friends, all my imagery.
I post randomly on here, usually specific forum related to the imagery or challenges. I shoot daily and process once or twice a week. I have many images I'm very proud of that I don't post at all on any platform. I am surprised by how many people do not want to post their imagery on any platform and I respect their wishes. I have been doing a lot of film portraiture this year and don't post them. However, the private work I can post in my portfolio.
In my opinion, likes are a slippery slope. It potentially can influence how and what you shoot which is an issue with me. I stay the course on my projects and don't take myself too seriously. I realize how much growth I need and the hobby keeps me humble.
