Having got heavily into Street Photography, I came across a Swiss Photographer recently who explained all the benefits of Flickr.
He suggested not using my own name and specialising in just one type of photography and further suggested that for street pictures, it was a good idea to work mainly in Black & White. And so F4Niko was born and I have been uploading a picture my F4Niko Flickr site every day since the start of the year. I still have a Flickr site in my own name as well as this site and www.goodphotolocations.com but my recent focus has been on F4Niko.
It has been great fun learning how the system works but the best thing is that I already have 38 contacts from all over the World and when I post a picture that they like, they tell me so. This is incredibly encouraging and really helps me to sort my good pictures from my not so good ones. Something that I find really difficult to do by myself.
So let me in turn encourage you to try what I did. Concentrate on your favourite type of photography and keep a Flickr site just for that. If you like street photography, have a look at F4Niko (there is a link in the links list) and make me a contact if you like what you see.
If it’s not too late, a Happy New Year to you all.
