As a photographer, one of the worst feelings is when very few people like a photo you are proud of and couldn't wait to share with the world. This really makes one question the path they are on in life.
That's when you realize the importance of taking photos for yourself and not others. If your main goal as a photographer is getting +1's, likes and positive feedback as well as thousands of followers it's time to reevaluate your goals as a photographer and why you are on social media like G+, facebook and twitter. Maybe it's time to take a different path on this journey called life.
