Like all social media there are tricks and tips on how to increase traffic to your pictures and connect with other photographers. By photographers, I mean people who actually take interesting shots with creative perspectives and interesting compositions, not people who take selfies (pictures of themselves) or food pics (just eat it, don't capture it every single day). So I have been connecting with people, making comments, learning what hashtags connect with the type of people I am trying to connect with, etc.
This week I received a nod from a magazine that I look at on a regular basis and have a goal to be published in some day, Canadian Geographic, one of the premier photo magazines in Canada. They liked the following picture that I took back in early December:

This small but significant nod made my week. Approximately 80 million photos are uploaded onto Instagram on a regular basis, and I was LIKED by Canadian Geographic. Go me!
Back to thesis work I go. More photography later!
