We talk about our photographs and how we arrive at them. But what about our likes and comments? How do they stack up.
With a photo, you can talk about many things: the type of camera you used, the type of film, the place, the time of day, your mood, etc. Likes limit themselves to a few styles:
1.) You like everything your friends produce
2.) You like everything your friends produce unless it is truly awful!
3.) You are careful to like only those photos which move you.
4.) You like a photo for each photo the other person likes of yours.
5.) You like only what you consider to be true lomographs (e.g. made by toy cameras) or heritage cameras, etc.
6.) You love it when people like your photos, but you don’t bother liking their work back. (Yes, I know a few of these. I won’t name names.)
I am a #3 most of the time. What about you?
