Instagram – mobile photography or all photography sharing

The debate at the moment is should I use Instagram for sharing only photos taken with a mobile device, which for me is an iPhone. Or should it simply be a sharing app for sharing all things photography, in which case I will start sharing my sporting images that were taken using a DSLR.

Decision made – to share from any camera, Instagram will be my primary photo sharing facility. instead of photos sitting on my hard drive they will at least see daylight. The great thing about instagram is the image size that is shared, very small and cannot be used to print very big. In terms of copyright I believe this to be win/win. Sharing photos while still retaining original full size images. So over the next few weeks I will start to post from the sporting archive. If your interested, load up the instagram app and search for “gregm”  Or to visit using a webpage use Webstagram

  1. I had not thought about the copyright advantages of Instagram in regards to the image size but you do make a good point. I agree, having a platform to share images that is easy to use is a must and Instagram certainly capitalizes on that functionality.
