howlandstudio Find me on #backspaces. I'm howlandstudio. Download @backspacesapp. 2y
  •   burningme 2y
  •   photosbyabby First I've heard of it. Downloading...๐Ÿ˜€ 2y
  •   photosbyabby Looks like I can share your stuff to my Facebook there too. Just saying. But very cool!!!!! 2y
  •   bruceeee Very cool Jen, looks interesting! 2y
  •   howlandstudio Do it! I'm not suggesting it as an IG substitute btw, it's totally different. @yoncie 2y
  •   howlandstudio It makes for a much richer photo sharing experience I think, (not a substitute for apps like IG where you post just one shot at a time). @bruceeee 2y
  •   howlandstudio Hi Sylke! @burningme 2y
  •   spotodog I'll check it out. Lately I've been very happy with tadaa. 2y

howlandstudio As I delete photos here from my account, (before the new IG terms of service kick in tomorrow and they can give them away, credit free), I realize it's not so much the collection I'll miss, but the wonderful conversations and comments with, and from, you all from the last 18 months or so that have transpired under the photos. โ€ฆโ€ฆ I just want to thank all of you again, most sincerely, for all of your love, wit, and the time you've spent with me here. It really means quite a lot me. โ€ฆโ€ฆ Also, I'll be keeping my account here, (and a very pared down collection of my photos), with an occasional watermarked () post here and there, just so I don't lose touch with those of you who are only on IG. โ€ฆโ€ฆ Much love! 2y
  •   notestomyself I will sincerely miss your amazing and colorful flower images!! You are a master of capturing beauty in nature. 2y
  •   mimiwings Firstly this is so beautifuland I hate to see you delete...but I'm glad you are not closing your account altogether. You truly are one of my favorite IG ersand I miss seeing your pics immensely. Hope to see you soon. 2y
  •   jk_jen I'm happy to be part of your Facebook page but sad to see you leaving here 2y
  •   dccitygirl How in the heck did I miss this? 2y
  •   razalas This is the best of the best!! I love this photo!! You did fantastic with this!!!! 2y
  •   bazbird Wow glorious butt shot Jennifer 2y

howlandstudio Even if IG has momentarily modified it's plan for world domination, er, I mean virtual total control over our creative property, it could change again at any time, with no notice, and near as I can tell, though they might not be selling our photos, they'll still be giving them away for free. ................And then there's the horrid spam, and bots, and what-nots. ................What to do, what to do? ................I have yet to find another photo sharing app that allows for the same feeling of community as IG does, but then again, some of the other apps seem to actually give a damn about their users, and not so concerned with how to use them. ................ So far I like Tadaa best for a mobile photo sharing app and they're starting to allow the importation of all of your IG photos if you so desire. So what's your #exitplan, if you have one? 2y
  •   bruceeee I hope you decide to stay Jennifer, it would not be the same without you! 2y
  •   howlandstudio So it was an awesome idea, (the tag to delete idea), unfortunately IG seems to think I'm spamming myself and will only let me tag a few at a time. @ncloe 2y
  •   howlandstudio I totally understand. @x_jk 2y
  •   howlandstudio We'll see... Thanks Mavis! And thanks especially so much for all of the wonderful comments you've left on my photos. @mavis_sctang 2y
  •   howlandstudio Thanks Paul! Is this your only photo home at present? @bruceeee 2y
  •   _treynor I'm packing up and slowly moving to stream zoo. I tried eyem and tadaa but I felt more at home with SZ. Not deleting my account at IG though. 2y
  •   sippewissettsea Thx for airing this. I went private and that has cut spam to almost nil. I do like the ig community, so conflicted... I love your work! 2y
  •   photosbyabby I'm with @mimiwings hoping for the best, and watermarking. Don't gooooo! You know you were my inspiration!! 2y

howlandstudio A little food for thought for the #macro_power_hour and #bwwednesday. Read on if you so desire... I know there's lots of folks up in arms over IG's latest announcement(s), and some who are thinking, who cares? I'm in the first camp, so allow me to get on my soapbox for a moment.
I can't say I was surprised by this latest development, since Facebook already has the same crappy policy, but I am still disheartened. The fact that you won't get at least credit for your photo, however trivial it may be, is just lame.
Secondly, for those who think it doesn't really matter, I think it really kinda does. While you might not care if some big company gets free images rather than pay a photographer/artist, it does hurt lots of hard working artists who may rely on that income, or at the very least, a credit that could lead to paying work.
I understand that IG is out to make money, FB has gotta find a way to recoup that billion dollars they paid after all, (though I'd venture to guess the constant barrage of copious advertising on FB, they must be making enough to leave IG alone), but I don't think this is the right approach.
I'm not jumping ship just yet, but between all the spam and other bs that seems to be on the rise here lately, I'm not sure I'm too keen to stay. I know I haven't been very active here lately, too much going on, too little connectivity, and too bummed out by not being able to use tags without getting spammed, I've been taking a bit of a break, but I do really miss my IG friends and all your great photos. Truly. Okay, stepping off the soapbox, (for now).

  •   howlandstudio Ain't that the truth! @yoncie 2y
  •   dragonflydreams_ Yes you will! 2y
  •   orbabgirl I know exactly what you mean. I feel like our family is falling apart too I'm not on any other apps as of yet, but I will join up on a one or two. Not quite sure which ones yet (as there are so many to pick from). What about you?! Have you joined any yet?! 2y
  •   howlandstudio I'm already on tadaa, (which I like a lot for the most part), and Flickr (howlinhill on there). Tried streamzoo a while back but it's just not for me. @orbabgirl 2y
  •   rawpiqs @howlandstudio the editing is Great on tadaa but the Interface is confusing. To much options and categories 2y
  •   seeallie365 Hey Jen, thanks much for articulating this. It matters. I am tired of and sick of the FB behavior/policy, waiting for someone like Josh Jonson to come up with an alternative. Meantime, I am thinking of my own exit strategy. If IG has taught me anything, it has taught me how much creativity is within us, how important a community is for anyone to grow, how hard it is to improve yourself, yet how rewarding and fun it can be in this creative process. No matter what the next step will be, I will remember all these lessons, search for and contribute to the making of the next creative online community in which we can continue to grow. Let's not lose touch: my twitter handle is 'seeallie' :) Happy 2013, Jen! You have been my inspiration. Take good care. 2y
  •   howlandstudio Thanks so much Allie!! I was just preparing a post as to where to find me if I should leave IG as you left this comment. I've just followed you on twitter, but I hardly use it, (still don't fully understand it), but at least we'll be connected there. We may well become photo sharing app refugees, and I hope so much there will be a positive new home for us all to reconnect and continue to learn and create. You have been an inspiration to me as well and I hope one day we can finally meet up for a photo walk! All the best for you in 2013! @seeallie365 2y
  •   spotodog Hi. I like Flickr and 500 pix 2y
