I am having a love affair with Instagram. Unless you’ve been living on another planet for the last couple of years, I’m sure you’ve heard of it. It’s an online photo sharing and social networking service that you use with your camera phone.
Instagram has been around for a few years and I’ve always used it for photo editing but I’ve only recently gotten into the social networking aspect of it. It appeals deeply to my creative side because it provides filters and utilities that you can use to enhance basic camera phone photos. And the square format makes my inner graphic designer very happy. I love that the opportunity to capture and create a gorgeous photo is always at my fingertips. Even if I don’t have my big fancy camera with me.
Another cool thing that I haven’t done yet but I wanted to share with you, is that Blurb offers these fantastic Instagram books. It pulls all your IG photos and formats them into a small square book. Making one of those books is on my summer agenda.
So if you want a quick and creative outlet that fits in your pocket, I highly suggest you join the Instagram tribe. Here are a few of my favorite captures:
