What is VSCO? I think of it as an odd social-media platform because on one hand, through the photographer's community of the world, it's immensely popular. On the other hand, with other social media participants, it's still a hidden anomaly.
You can think of VSCO as a social media platform that reaches many areas. From one angle, it's "an art and technology company empowering and inspiring people everywhere to create, discover, and connect" (VSCO Website). From another angle it's a technology company that creates photo presets for multiple editing platforms for photographers. On the other end of the spectrum, other than being a camera on your mobile devices and a community, it allows you to create something that they call a VSCO Grid: the perfect place for a photo gallery.
I'm a nut for consistency and clean photo streams. Unfortunately, through the multiple uses of photo related social media platforms (such as Instagram), we tend to be on the messier side to attract a wider audience (which is not true in all cases). My Instagram feed is a multitude of photos taken from digital cameras, iPhone photos, colour and black & white, and different aspect ratios. It's not the consistent photo stream that I always dreamed of.
Considering the majority of my Instagram feed is speckled with iPhone photos, I decided to create a VSCO Grid to showcase my very best and favourite iPhone photos that I've taken through the years.
This is accomplishing one of my dreams: a beautiful, consistent, and aesthetically pleasing gallery.
