Got an Instagram account? If not, start one today. Now that you have one, work on your profile a bit. tell the world who you are!
Here's the challenge:
Part 1: Find 10 good photographers to follow on Instagram. Search out people who have a style you like, see what kind of hashtags they use to get their work seen (#streetphotography #Maine #smalltownlife etc.)
Part 2: Create an interesting photo and post it to your own Instagram account. Consider getting creative - explore some of the editing tools on your phone or online. Explore VSCO (https://vsco.co/) or any other free editing platforms. If you have your drive from class with you, see what's there. If you don't, it's with me. If there's a photo you know you took and I can find if for you, let me know. But definitely, shoot something new! In these days, consider using the #lockdown hashtag.
Part 3: Follow the Mid-Maine Technical Center Instagram account and definitely, search out our followers. Check out: a Colby student photographer who was coming to our class: https://www.instagram.com/jbui.photo/, and me:
