For reasons I can neither fully comprehend nor explain in any coherent way, I decided a couple of weeks ago to dive into Instagram. Having had a Tumblr account since the dawn of Vinyl Connection I largely ignored the world’s largest image sharing social app, a choice that says much about my ability to pick the second-place getter in a two-horse race.
Anyway, vinylconnection_aus is now alive and kicking on Insta, and very addictive it is too. A steep learning curve is inevitable for a ten-thumbs technophobe like the writer, but I’m persisting. For now.
Having a consistent ‘style’ for your record photographs seems to offer some advantages when it comes to enhancing brand recognition. (What language am I actually talking, here?) I’ve been experimenting with a few ‘preferred’ arrangements and would value the responses of Vinyl Connection’s core community, here at the blog.
The categories are these:
GENESIS “Duke” 
HOODOO GURUS “(Stoneage Romeos)” 
STEELY DAN “Two Against Nature” 
KEITH JARRETT “Facing You” 
Which do you prefer? Do some work better than others? Any Insta-secrets to share?
While you are pondering, let’s run through those options one more time:
STEVE HOWE “The Steve Howe Album” 
SHAKTI with JOHN McLAUGHLIN 
JEFF BECK GROUP “Rough And Ready” 
PINK FLOYD “Works”
