Last week i wrote a post about being tired of pinterest🤪, now i wanna share all the reasons why i actually love it🖤. though i do need breaks.😬
my top 5 reasons to love pinterest:
👉🏻 check my ideas: whenever i get an idea for an image, this is the first place for me to go and see if other people already did something in that area;
👉🏻find reference: i’m not a pro in say makeup and hair, so i don’t even realize what’s possible to do with a model’s look sometimes. pinterest is my primary source to search for those looks. with that said: it’s irreplaceable for creating shoot moodboards for either your team members, or clients, or both.
👉🏻 great suggestions: pinterest does an amazing job at suggesting you new stuff to look at. i really like 85% of the images suggested to me, that’s why i find the site/app so addictive.
👉🏻 learning: pinterest was my most favorite way to create collections of images when you study history of photography, or any other visual art (fine art, illustration, architecture). i used to create boards for photography masters’s works, so that i can remember them better.
👉🏻 storing ideas: as some of you may know, i like to steal some of my ideas from other forms of art, like illustrations. pinterest boards are a great way for me to keep my idea sources in one online space and easily accessible. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
what are your reasons to love or hate pinterest? are there some ways of using it that i’m missing out? share in the comments! 👇🏻
this is another shot from the cool lost and found project.
