Pet Peeve of Mine - People That Purchase Fake Instagram Followers

Guess what? It's very easy to spot fake Instagram followers: A fast and large spike in followers, thousands of followers that all have only 5 photos posted each. I choose to keep it real and gain my followers slow and organically, and apparently I'm not the only one. It takes time but at least it legitimate. Check out this story here:  http://racked.com/archives/2014/09/11/buy-instagram-followers-bloggers.php  And please don't forget to follow me on Instagram http://instagram.com/jonathan_alcorn Thanks!

DITCHtheDSLR event in Hollywood This Tuesday!!

Join me, Nick Cannon, Julianne Hough, fellow LA area imageloggers, and Samsung Camera at Hollywood and Highland this Tuesday October 14 for DITCHtheDSLR day in Hollywood! Bring an old DSLR for a chance to trade for a brand new NX30 or NXmini. Also, if you are in to selfies, you can witness a world record selfie attempt in the afternoon to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. Below, I am posting some of the images I've been making with these amazing Samsung mirrorless cameras. Hope to see you out there!

Where:
Hollywood and Highland Center, 6801 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028
What:
After a successful and action-packed stop in NY’s Times Square, Samsung’s #DITCHtheDSLR day rolls into Hollywood and Highland with a chance for VIP Press and consumers to trade in a DSLR to the award-winning Samsung NX30 or an NX Mini SMART Camera, and witness a selfie Guinness World Record breaking with Nick Cannon andJulianne Hough!
As technology advances and cameras become smaller and lighter, many have continued to carry around large outdated DSLR cameras or often limited smartphone cameras without questioning, “Is there something better?”
Come and check out some of the newest, slimmest and most connected Samsung SMART cameras. Consumers that Ditch a DSLR (trade in) will receive a new NX30 or NX Mini SMART Camera - WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.
In the afternoon, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles will join SamsungNick andJulianne to break a Guinness World Record. Samsung will donate $50,000 to the very worthy cause once the record is set.
 To be eligible to Ditch your DSLR you must have the following items:
  • DSLR Body
  • Lens
  • Battery
No exceptions will be made. For more questions please consult the terms and conditions.
