Every day, I pick up one of the photos I worked on to distribute to a handful of social media platforms as part of my work flow. Besides my website promotion, it is beneficial to understand what the regular people like. Among which, 500px.com is the one I like most. The core algorithms of the platform ranks tens of thousands photos from that day by popularity (a number what they called ‘Pulse’). Eye catching images, even the author has zero followers, can make to the front page. It is true that the ranking does not fall in line with the artistry of the photo however it is a good reference and knowledge to understand what people or the market mainstreams love.
In March, my work focused on New England Foliage series, One World Trade Center and couple of mixed locations in New York.
