It's not really a complaint, but how do you get your IG photos spread out over a number of posts. I wish my port was half as good as yours. Stop being good.

Did I do that right?

Hey I am looking for a beat down,

Lol

But I will answer your question

Resize your Images to 120 cm x80cm ( or 80cm x120cm)

And then chop them into  up into 40cm x40cm  sections for individual IG posting

Canon Beach on the Oregon Coast

But the Model sadly is retired

Overall the Shoot was disappointing because the weather was forcast to be good but we got there mid day (from Washington State it immediately began to cloud over and then started raining … I would really only recommend trying to shoot there in the middle of summer

I think I've shot on that beach  .  .  .  flew into Seattle to complete the drive down the PCH to Baja Mexico, I musta stopped to shoot beautiful spots at least 50 or so times on the way south  .  .  .  it had been over fifty years since I did that drive, the last time we surfed our way down the coast, but, that was in prehistoric times, when boards were made outta wood (balsa) and surfers were nutz  .  .  .  really enjoyed the image GK!

I know that spreading images out over several frames is fashionable, and that you are a fashion photographer, but I find it overused in in your Instagram port. There...berating over!

For the most part your photography, both here on MM and on Instagram, is spot on and I enjoy looking at your work.
