    Hello!

    Hopefully I post this the right place.

    I'm an old fart starting out with Instagram, and need some advice.

    I photograph (and write about) cars as a part time income.

    Other stuff I shoot is landscape, nature and "random" things. I've a Insta account with a few photos (and even less followers), with mostly car photos.

    Would it be a good idea to just post car, and car related photos, and hava another account for the rest?

    Thanks!

    If it were me, I'd just have the one Instagram account, can't really see the point in having two.

    It'll break the Instagram account up as well if you post different photos instead of just cars.

    Thank you for your reply.
    Yeah, I see your point, that's the way I'm leaning at the moment too.

    I just use one account. I know some use two accounts, one for personal and one for business. I totally can understand that. But having two accounts for two different kinds of photography subjects, in my opinion, wouldbecome too overwhelming to manage.

    I would have 2 accounts if one is related to your paid (car) stuff. If I were a car enthusiast and I followed you and was getting other stuff I wasn't interested in from you in the feed I would probably unfollow.

    I don't do any of the Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. So, can't help you there.

    But I will say welcome to the forum.
