So, the StreamZoo went down, sadly.

Most of you probably never heard of it, but it was a nice photo-social-network, in some cases even outstripping famous Instagram. For example, you could follow not only users, but hashtags, too. Or officially upload photos from the browser, made with your non-phone camera. The result - you had a stream of lots of beautiful photos, and you could easily follow new works by the topic, not by the author (who cares who is shooting the beer. Just gimme the shots!!!).

Oh, and there were not only squared formats, too.

So, after the 22nd of the March it will be only Instagram, again. Or am I missing something?

Why am I talking about all this stuff? Because I realized I'm more productive in shooting with phones than with my DSLR, nowdays.

No, it does not mean I'm quitting the traditional photography, not at all. I'm just adding phonetography - which is not so different from traditional photography, at least today. It does not matter what you are shooting with. All the matter is the idea and the result.

Couple of years ago many professional photographers were quite skeptic about all this phonetography thing, and I partly understand them - all those camera systems in phones were quite poor, but for some reason those professional photographers did not look to the future. Technologies always getting better and cheaper, i.e. more and more people can get a photographing device. More people with photographing devices - more chances to get some newbies hooked on photography and grow them into good photographers, finally.

Today professional photographers are doing phonetography too. And, surprisingly, many of them joined the game, called Instagram. And yes, they're making amazing shots there, because of the same reason - it does not matter what are you shooting with, it's your mind that matters. And Instagram is simulating some skills, so that is why it's popular around the beginners and amateurs.

Yes, the Instagram is a game. Or microphotography, as I call it (I love to add micro- everywhere it fits). But this is a good shhsss...tuff!

It's educating, it's raising (or preventing from losing) your skills and creativity, it may be beautiful, but most important - it's fun!

Right now I'm contemplating on publishing some of my instashots here, on DA. Yes, they look much worse on the big screen, and there are lots of them, so it's hard to decide which ones are worthy for republishing, but what's your opinion, guys?

And do you (I'm addressing to those who are shooting in a traditional way) use Instagram? Care to share you profiles? I'm @ godbjorn there.
