People aren't searching for it though are they? Instagram works through searching tags. It's like being pissed off that people aren't caring more about the preservation of late 19th century ironclad warshships.
It's because nobody searches about niche shit on a platform known for titty pics.

So quit your bitching. You're just a attention whore yourself since you did it for the likes on the internet and not for the experience.

Maybe I can solve your problem, let me explain what I did

>be me
>like to shoot birbs like you
>realize a spoiled teenager can achieve 1000 likes with a selfie while I was stuck at 100 likes when shit was good
>realize instagram wasn't about photos, but lifestyle
>burn 8000 units of money on a new pro gear
>cell phone photo of my gear while taking photos of birbs
>all tags is about gear
>"This is the set up if you want to shoot birbs like a pro!"
>spend more 100 units of money on a sponsored content on the app
>???
>profit

result is: I'm sharing how I do it and flexing the gear on my account, profile is now over 50k (maybe reaching 60k until end of December) followers because people are following me due my gear. Even my most shit image is now reaching 1000 likes, and some brands are now calling me for sponsored partnerships.

>mfw now I'm the spoiled teenager

>>3759745

Wildlife photography is dumb. You'd have to be fulfilled by it to care to do it. Or have a magazine to pay you or something. But it's like, who cares? Yeah, it's an animal, so what? The photos don't make you feel anything. They don't really serve much purpose. Like OK, >>3759698 is a picture of a random birb. So what? Nobody cares about your wildlife photos.
>>
>>3759896
You are confusing 'wildlife' with 'my opinion'
>>
>>3759910
Nobody cares about your opinion, either, but that doesn't mean they care about your wildlife photos.

Wildlife photographer cope.
>>
>>3759896
try arguing this with a biologist. i literally cried when I found out Colorado voted to reintroduce wolves. what you feel is entirely person to person. i'm overwhelmed by the complexity of life, the beauty organismal relationships, the elegance of evolution, the magnitude of biodiversity. foggy gas stations, portraits of friends, and old beat up cars are emotional children's-play to me.
>>
>>3759916
Cried in a good or bad way? These fuckers can be a major problem to the ecosystem.
>>
>>3759916
It's interesting to hear a different perspective. I don't think most people feel that way though. When most people like or upvote or complement a photo of an animal, it's because it's cute or looks cozy or something. There's typically some aesthetic value to the photo other than just "this is an animal." But wildlife photos are like, "this is an animal."

you spent your $1500 on camera gear, she spends $1500 on clothes for those instagram photos then fake likes and followers.

To be honest she probably put more effort in that you did, i bet she spends half her life studying other girls pages on instagram.
Also huge amounts of time on that app networking, liking and commenting on other peoples content.

So onto the real question OP, did you study what bird pirctures do well on instagram? did you study and put tons of time and effort into replicating exactly that?
She no doubt has spent 100s of hours studying what pictures other girls post, she has also spent 100s of hours networking on the app, and she has spent big money on fake likes and followers,

She has put in at least 1000% more effort than you and also cheated by buying fake. You never stood a chance OP.

In summary, if you dont buy big on fake likes and followers and also spend huge amount of hours on insta liking and commenting on other peoples pictures, plus studying and getting good at copying exactly what is popular at the moment(which changes constantly) you wont do very well on instagram.

inbefore some faggot claims he did good on instagram without buying fake likes and followers, (so you got someone else to buy them for you, you used some follow unfollow or commenting app, you did some other bullshit you arent telling anyone about)
>>
>>3759934

i also forgot to mention the $20k it costs for a good boob job, the lips would of been hundreds more for the botox, which needs redoing quite often as the body slowly clears it away.
The hundreds of dollars of makeup, the hundreds of dollars on hair extensions, 10k if she got her teeth done with veneers (also that involves having all your teeth ground away to points)

the list goes on and on...

>>3759939
>people get emotional over things I don't understand getting emotional over so it must be faked
i might have autism (never been examined, but i certainly show some consistent traits) but I'm no larper; i'm currently a phd student at one of the US's (mot likely the world's) top 3 marine biology institutions. i genuinely love chemistry, hydrology, geology, paleontology, maths, but most of all biology. so much that i have dedicated the last ten years of my life to the study of and will likely dedicate my the rest of my life. my insta is well over 99% wildlife and nature, my printing is mostly about what i am studying, and communicating patterns and concepts that occur at population and community levels and up through single, non-composite images. i read about it every single day. if you think i can't get emotional enough over something I love and value this much to cry it's because your own understanding of passion is limited to the degree that you cannot connect it to reasoning, or because you lack reasoning or empathy/sympathy skills.

>>3759924
i agree, probably most people do not feel the same that i do, but it's important to recognize that for some of us a photo of an animal has a lot more depth than just the animal. photos can contain representation (subtle or obvious) of complicated behavioral interactions between or among organisms, they can contain the fear associated with the extinction of a species or an ecosystem service, or of many species/services in the case of the extinction of a keystone species, they can contain feelings of inconsequentiality if the processes exhibited are large enough in size or scale, or feelings of admiration if the phenomena exhibited are just that fucking cool, they can contain memories of particularly incredible encounters or field seasons or research projects. I can show you one single picture that could inspire a decade of research. feeling comes from knowing, so the more you know about a subject the more feeling there is to extract from any image concerned with it. tl;dr wildlife photos are very many layers deeper than "this is an animal" if you know enough about biology.

Ah, but you see, it's the fuzzy/exotic stuff that can be most endangered, because those are the animals targeted for poaching, and containment. Nobody is going to disturb some monstrous deep sea creature, or a weird spider that only patrols remote forest floors at night. Although you're probably right if you're saying that all the environmental damage we're doing is impacting and endangering them too, even if indirectly.

what did he mean by this?
>>3759987
Oh I see what you mean now. Academia is a cutthroat environment and people often try to steal others' research for fame & glory. I've seen it in the maths field (university professors peeking at coworkers notes and that kind of thing), I can't even begin to imagine how bad it'd be in biology.
>>
Daily reminder shooting photos for vapid likes on social media is for faggots and you are doing it wrong if you do this
>>
Thats a cracking pair of tits OP
>>
>>3760300
the endangerment bias is only very weakly skewed toward mammals and birds, and to some degree that is difficult to separate from the fact that a much greater proportion and number of known creepy-crawlies are data deficient.

for sure direct human interaction plays a role in things being at risk of extinction, but I am willing to bet you all of the cameras on my shelf, including a 35Ti and 2 Calypso PHOTs that climate change and habitat destruction/degradation drive more than 90% of species' declines.

"exotic" depends on where you are. marine organisms face a different suite of extinction pressures than terrestrial ones.

This all being said, it only strengthens the point I was originally trying to make, which is that for people who both know and are passionate about biology pictures of wildlife and nature can contain deep layers
>>
>>3760322
I use new topo very closely to describe the modern trend of minimalist photographs of the built environment that people on p and a lot of other communities love so much. It's really photography for photographers if such a thing existed. Most people I know who aren't photographers with a capital P don't care about that stuff.

Because anyone taking photography seriously in their own right, is taking it seriously. They don't need the latest shit Peter McKinnon's whole gear list. There are people who use literally one body and lense and make a living. Even get shit done with point and shoot to prove you don't need amazing gear to make art. A good photographer who's serious, can get their point across just by being.. [spoiler]good at taking photos.[/spoiler]

First of all, start shooting for yourself as in for self satisfaction and to improve your skill. Why care about how many likesothrts get even if your work is more technically sound? The teens in question don't have any effect on your life or well-being so don't get stuck on them.

Besides yourself, the only others to be concerned about liking your photos would be clients who pay you to deliver
