    My fondness for Flickr continues to grow as I make more and more connections with people who are doing the kind of photography I love. I do also use it for research, both for locations and for real world examples of photos taken with various lenses. Instagram started out as a site for phone photographers, and it was cutting edge, but then it migrated quickly towards general social media. Flickr on the other hand feels like a site for true enthusiast.

  2. Mads T on October 12, 2021 at 9:26 am

    Still using flicker. I can’t accept giving up copyright on instagram (and I’m not keen on getting trapped in the horror that is Facebook)

  3. Ryan H on October 12, 2021 at 9:28 am

    Some quality tips

  4. John Smith on October 12, 2021 at 9:28 am

    Yeah, use Flickr. I would love for you to check me out. Just search Adison Ransley on Flickr. I’ve only got 2 photos up though. With the current situation I can’t really go anywhere. Quite saddening.

  5. Dominic Lester on October 12, 2021 at 9:29 am

    You need an App to help with your music fade-outs 😀

  6. Richard Jackson on October 12, 2021 at 9:32 am

    I use Flickr all the time, also great for location research it’s helped a lot of the years, good vlog

  7. Toni Cañabate on October 12, 2021 at 9:33 am

    Hi Nigel, today I just received your calendar. It looks wonderful!

  8. keremina100 on October 12, 2021 at 9:33 am

    Hi Nigel, loved this video. really helpful. I’d like to add phone photos and locations to Google Maps too, but can’t figure out how you do it. Could you go into step by step instruction for that please?

  9. Ben McCarthy on October 12, 2021 at 9:33 am

    I still use flickr a bit

  10. Anthony Plancherel on October 12, 2021 at 9:34 am

    Great advice as always Nigel! Thank you!

  11. Ralph Watson on October 12, 2021 at 9:36 am

    Strongly prefer Flickr on my PC. Put my favorite photos there and use it often for research.

  12. Andy Dorsett on October 12, 2021 at 9:36 am

    Hi Nigel, Have you tried Gaia gps? It’s a great app and one I use a lot when working. You can drop a pin on your exact location, add notes and photos of the location, plan a trip, mark where you left your car so you can always find your way back lol. Once home you can then put it all on to the Gaia basecamp site online.

  13. Jeff Guile on October 12, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Yes I use Flikr and I think its a good platform

  14. David Cooper on October 12, 2021 at 9:41 am

    Hi! again, Nigel Danson. I just wanted to say, Thank You! for this one, it gave me a very good reason for using my cellphone for more than making calls. THANKS!!! Composition Framing

  15. Heather Jennings on October 12, 2021 at 9:42 am

    As always a great video–you’re my new photography boyfriend by the way 🙂 So, I need to know where you are. The stone wall with the rolling hills behind you is a dream. Seriously, where are you??

  16. Yagan Kiely on October 12, 2021 at 9:44 am

    Has any one else worked out how to pin photos to google maps? 😬

  17. Joel Wolski on October 12, 2021 at 9:44 am

    I just posted to IG explaining how the GPS tagging on the photo taken with my phone on my scouting hike 3 months ago, made it possible to return to the same location for a sunset image. Even with the little flag on Google maps I still walked past it 3 times. But I eventually got the shot.

  18. David Black on October 12, 2021 at 9:50 am

    I use Flickr for photo trip planning.

  19. Ian Slingsby on October 12, 2021 at 9:54 am

    I still use Flickr. You’d be surprised how many people search for you and end up looking at my tagged photos from your workshop. Shame the light was terrible, hope they don’t put anyone off!

  20. Timothy Hanko on October 12, 2021 at 9:55 am

    Except I NEVER take my phone with me when I am out. Don’t want to be bothered by it. But that is just me. 🙂

  21. Kevin Olson on October 12, 2021 at 9:57 am

    Thanks for the ideas. I have taken some good notes. Very helpful!

  22. Otto Astorga on October 12, 2021 at 9:58 am

    Great video on the use of the phone. Back in the film days I would use a card with a cutout about 2×3 if I remember correctly. I would hold it closer to my eye or farther to simulate wide, normal or telephoto lenses. My fear has been running out of battery power using the phone so much but I’ve got my back up solar power brick now plus PhotoPills and I’ll have to check out the one other weather app you mentioned. I’m using an iPhone 7 and have beaten into submission and probably will need a new one at some point. But it works for what you mentioned perfectly. Thanks for sharing this fine set of tips. And now I must go spelunking a metaphor for that undiscovered angle. 🙂

  23. David Simpson on October 12, 2021 at 9:58 am

    Yes Nigel, still use Flickr which has been improved and allows posting of better quality images than others.

  24. Dan R on October 12, 2021 at 10:00 am

    I do use Flickr still, Love your videos i also already have some of the apps you suggested but thank you for the new ones i shall have a look into 🙂 Amazing videos, Amazing photographer and a true inspiration. Thank you 🙂

  25. Cascadian Man Photography on October 12, 2021 at 10:00 am

    Flickr for me. Much better resolution than Insta, and without the restrictive conventions. The Insta “drip bag” – that feeling you always need to feed it to maintain engagement – is tiresome and promotes mediocrity and mimicry… at least it did for me.

  26. Sergei Korschmin on October 12, 2021 at 10:01 am
  27. DAVID PAUL DENNIS on October 12, 2021 at 10:03 am

    Still use flickr have done for years.

  28. Joseph A on October 12, 2021 at 10:03 am

    That photo was amazing. What a gorgeous landscape

  29. David Nurse on October 12, 2021 at 10:04 am

    Another interesting video, Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. I have downloaded a few of the apps. Everything helps when you are learning.

  30. Aurelius on October 12, 2021 at 10:04 am

    That’s a very beautiful place. How do you watch out and keep safe from natural dangers like wildlife and slithering poisonous snakes. Any tips?

  31. Andrew Hooton on October 12, 2021 at 10:04 am

    Nigel you should check out the app called windy

  32. Jose Sanabria on October 12, 2021 at 10:06 am

    Awesome video Nigel, thanks for your excellent thr way, I loved the way you ended the vid, good sense of humor haha.

  33. True Dat on October 12, 2021 at 10:06 am

    Nice list of photography apps. Also checkout True Dat app. It lets photojournalists, photographers & anyone with an iPhone to create, share, buy & sell unedited, verifiable & tamper-evident photos & videos and prove that they are NOT fake or photoshopped or deepfaked.

  34. xchaser69 on October 12, 2021 at 10:07 am

    flickr is still really good.

  35. Darren Russinger on October 12, 2021 at 10:09 am

    Flick who? Used it years ago during a 52 week challenge. Haven’t looked at it since. And thank you for the great video. Just bought PhotoPills and can’t wait to start using it!

  36. Robin Caddy on October 12, 2021 at 10:10 am

    The best thing about Flickr was the groups. As they died my use of the site declined. I still have photos stored there but didn’t renew my pro account this year after many years of paying. A shame really.

  37. Re Rod on October 12, 2021 at 10:10 am

    Thanks for another quote helpful video Nigel. 👍

  38. Hugh Wolfe on October 12, 2021 at 10:11 am

    Nigel lots of good information as always…
    There are viewfinder apps available as well. I’ve not purchased one as of yet, however it’s on my list. They mimic your camera/lens combination and are available from free to “they’re really proud of that app”.

  39. Al Evans on October 12, 2021 at 10:13 am

    I really like Flickr, there’s no selfies 😉

  40. dizlys on October 12, 2021 at 10:14 am

    How do you tag your photos to google maps?

  41. Paulo Amaral on October 12, 2021 at 10:14 am
  42. Pablo Gonzalez on October 12, 2021 at 10:15 am

    The all mighty phone for better or for worse who knows!

  43. thebiblioholic on October 12, 2021 at 10:16 am

    Yes, I am on Flickr.

  44. Mark Ferrell on October 12, 2021 at 10:16 am

    Thank You

  45. mario measor on October 12, 2021 at 10:16 am

    my local photographic society uses Flickr, so I got an account for that. Otherwise, I would have never signed up

  46. Steve2426 on October 12, 2021 at 10:18 am

    Definitely picked the tip in using a phone first off of you Nigel. I prefer 500px to Flickr. Instagram and way it operates are not for me. Definitely agree about Photopills and Clear Outside apps. I use Weather Underground & met office plus View Ranger /All Trails. Outdoorgps has bad reviews. Good idea about using Google maps to tag locations – thanks 🙂

  47. AHB on October 12, 2021 at 10:18 am

    TPE 3D is only available on IOS …

  48. Vanya Simon on October 12, 2021 at 10:18 am

    Flickr baby

  49. Martin Aarne on October 12, 2021 at 10:19 am

    Nice, you have a camera operator in this video! 🙂 I like it

  50. NSNorfolk on October 12, 2021 at 10:21 am

    I use Flicker and even after 40 years of photography, constantly find educational take always. Flicker is great!
