Is it any coincidence that the most successful photographers are the ones that are the best at marketing their work?ajfotofilmagem said:There will always be good singers, photographers, painters, but they achieve visibility amidst the ocean of garbage trying to steal our attention?
Here's an interesting take on this from someone with perspective (Interview with Steve McCurry of the Afghan Girl fame):
Q: When talking about change, many photographers allude to the fact that we're all inundated with images now thanks to Instagram and the web in general. Have you seen a change in the way we interact with photos because of that?
A: People are taking many more photos now, but we have always been inundated with pictures. 40 or 50 years ago we would have magazines and newspapers, but now there's Instagram, the Internet and all of that. It's an evolution.
