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?
Various analog styles were discussed with Matthew holding portrait sessions using the Wet plate colloidal style of image making. We also made film pin hole cameras using a matchbox, tape and cardboard.
The workshop made me think a lot about film and alternate photography. Some of the concepts of going back to film I like, slowing down, thinking about your image, composing – not the spray and pray style of digital. At the moment I don’t believe analog/film photography is practical for me. I think I will stick to digital but with more thought and time taken to produce images. The plan will also be to make a pinhole lens cap for my DSLR or possibly even purchase a Pinwide for my m 4/3 camera.
