Here’s an assortment of my recent Instagram images. The first set are mostly from recent bike rides and the second set are all from a hike up Stone Mountain that I made a few weeks ago.
So I’ve been having way too much fun using Instagram, as mentioned in an earlier post. It’s a great visual social networking tool. It’s especially useful if you’re in the early stages of leaning the art of photography as it can open up a world of feedback to help you along. I’m really jealous of kids today, though they will never know the wonderment of working in a darkroom seeing images come to life through chemical interactions.
Using Instagram reinforces my love of iPhoneography, that’s for sure!
Ever wonder what a photographer’s fridge may look like? Yeah, me neither. We got a new fridge recently and after moving stuff from the old one into the new one I was startled at my film reserves. I’m especially happy to still have a decent amount of Polaroid sheet film, and I’m dying to use it, but wish I had much more.
I hate to see film disappearing from this world, but then, maybe it’s ok. I mean, it’s not the most friendly medium there is in terms of its ingredients and effect on the environment. But I will still miss it, just as I miss spending days at a time in the darkroom.
This is a few months old, as you can tell by the abundance of snow in the video, but I thought it was worth posting here. I finally got around to experimenting with shooting and editing video on my iPhone. Itâ€™s a pretty cool process, Iâ€™m not sure why I havenâ€™t done any of this before now. My dog Jack absolutely loves snow and plastic flower pots. This film documents that love, or tries to anyway.
I’ve been getting more and more addicted to Instagram. Something that I was warned about before I started, I should have listened. Actually, I did listen. That was kind of a selling point for me. I wish you could customize the settings and combine them differently, but even still, it’s pretty fun to be limited and work to make the best decision based on what’s best for each image. I love that having an iPhone means that I always have a decent camera with me, always. And I love that I can do a wide range of post-processing while I’m out and about, not having to wait until I’m at my desk. I also love that this, for me, serves as constant inspiration for making photographic artwork.
