From the Chairs, November/December 2018

Instagram is one of the most powerful ways to make your work known and to discover other like-minded photographers. Our Instagram page, SierraPhotoNYC, is up and running with 98 followers and counting! Photos posted to the page very quickly start accumulating likes and comments. If you don’t have an Instagram account, it’s easy to create one, through your smartphone. Start by installing the Instagram app from your app store (such as Apple). The page provides answers to many questions.

As you post your best nature photos from your phone, add the hashtag #sierraphotonycpix. They will be considered for posting on our page. You can move your photos from your computer to your phone’s picture gallery. One of these methods will make it easy.

• Start by sending the photo to yourself as an email attachment and open the email on your phone.

• For Apple phones, hold you finger on the photo and a menu appears. Choose “Save Image” and the image will be available in your “all photos” menu.

• For Android phones, hold your finger on the photo and a “View Image” message will appear. Tap the “View Image” message and a menu icon will appear (3 vertical dots). Tap the menu and select “Save”. The photo will now be in your phone’s photo gallery.

Give Instagram a try! It would be great to have more photographers included in the mix.
