Joining 500px

Even though it’s been around for a while the photo-sharing site 500px is all over the place at the moment. During the last few weeks it was almost impossible to browse through Twitter without noticing that more and more photographers in my timeline started to use it to share their images, or at least are giving it a try.

Long story short: now there’s one more.

I learned about 500px some time ago for the first time in an article by Manfred over on German photography blog Zoomyboy and since then I noticed more and more of my friends over on Twitter signing up.

I finally took the plug and signed up myself now and you can find me there under this addy:


As of this moment I have uploaded a few images (for the regular visitor here, these should already be familiar) and slowly get started with the site and added/followed a few familiar faces already. So far, it does make a good impression, if it actually will stick only time can tell.

It definitely is a good alternative to Flickr, which in fact, I never liked, hence the insanely low activity in my stream.

If you are also on 500px feel free to connect with me there.

  1. It’s very interesting, but I think that 1X much better ( It’s hard to be admitted (but I think you should not have problem ๐Ÿ™‚ ) , but the image quality is really high. Take a peek…


    • Hi Max!

      Thanks for your comment and your humbling words. In fact I have tired 1x a while ago and somehow found the process to get an image into there, so annoying that I decided that it’s not for me. Quality of images aside, I think it shouldn’t be so difficult to get image up there. Have been hearing the same also from other sources.

  2. And so, how have you been getting along Sven? I’m in Social Network overload at this point and am very careful about adding another one ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi John!

      Just fine, been hanging out over there a bit and so far it’s been going nice there. At least nicer than on Flickr. Which in fact is easy, as I’m not doing anything there at the moment ๐Ÿ™‚

      Let’s just see what happens over there.

  3. Good post Sven – I’ve been quietly following your work since rolling out with my own daily PhotoBlog (Canterbury, NZ) almost 6 weeks ago! Social media is incredibly important these days however, it can really soak up your time… but for the additional exposure, then it’s a case of needs must!

    Keep up the great work! ๐Ÿ™‚
