Been quiet on the blog lately, we had a new arrival into the world a few weeks ago. A little boy (our 3rd). Have been working on some photos which I will show soon. In the meantime a few photos from a train trip to the city with my eldest boy. Nothing major just a few iPhone snaps from the day out.
I recently began posting non-iPhone photos to my Instagram feed
These have mainly been taken with a Canon DSLR, most of the photos would have been impossible to take using an iPhone, fast shutter speeds, compressed perspective with a long lens.
Screen grab from my last 16 images posted to Instagram. The top 10 were with a DSLR.
I’m still not certain it is the correct thing to do or whether it should be iPhone only. Its a great service to get your photos out there, sharing and commenting in the social way.
What does everyone think – iPhone only or any photo you have taken?
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
I thought it was time to download a few of the lens and film packs and give Hipstamatic another go. Shake to random gets the most use, this selects any combination of film and lens, you take a photo and wait for the results, unknown of what combination has been picked and what your image will finish up looking like. Like being back in the film days without knowing what film is loaded into your camera.
