If you shoot film and Fujichrome Velvia 100 is your film of choice, I have some bad news for you. The film has been labeled toxic, so Fujifilm was forced to discontinue it in the US.
How many times have you heard or said that Instagram is toxic and full of meaningless content? In fact, it kinda is, but is it the only kind of content you’ll find there? Today I want to talk to you briefly about your Instagram feed and whether it’s food or poison for your mind. Because it depends only on you what it will be.
It looks as if toxic lakes are rising in popularity among Instagrammers and the latest hit is Monte Neme in Galicia, Spain. Several visitors have reported skin rashes and stomach issues after taking photos in the water. Some of them have even ended up in the hospital after suffering damage to their skin and digestive systems.
This is a pretty interesting video from Manny Ortiz talking about an observation that I think a lot of people have come to notice over the last couple of years. And that’s that the photography community, particularly online, can be extremely toxic. To the point where I’ve actually seen people give up photography completely due to the harrassment they’ve received online.
Is it the same in the real world? outside of Facebook and other social media? That’s what Manny believes, but I’m not entirely sure. It definitely exists more online, but it’s still definitely out there in the real world, too.
