Flickr: Practicum #6Posted: November 10, 2011
I have been taking pictures with the intent to post them to Flickr. This past weekend, I had a friend visit and we walked to Picnic Point, taking lots of pictures along the way that I uploaded onto my Flickr page. Another new update is that I didn’t log on for about a week, and then when I logged on I had all of these requests to follow my account from people I knew. It was really cool, because it proved that people were looking at my pictures and wanting to follow my photography. I haven’t received any comments yet, but I’m hoping to soon. I went through the accounts that I am following, and made some comments on pictures I really liked. Part of this assignment is to communicate with people in a media-based social networking way, so I figured I would start my adding my own personal comments. Hopefully people will respond and let me know what they think of my pictures, too. Some of the questions I asked were in regard to style, place, and focus, and other comments were just if I thought a picture was pretty, cool, or professional. I asked where pictures had been taken, what lens was used, and if there was any Macro settings or lighting changes. This was really interesting to me, and I will keep an eye out over the next few weeks to see if people respond to my comments and feedback.
