Instagram: iPhone and Android Photography App

Instagram, created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, is an app available to iPhone and Android users that allows you to take or import photos, choose a filter, and post them to your Instagram profile, while simultaneously sharing them to your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, and foursquare accounts. Instagram isn’t currently available for Blackberry users, but the new Blackberry Z10 has compensated by providing various filters and photo editing options.

I use Instagram frequently, mainly as fast and efficient way to post pictures to my blog (otherwise known as dirty hipster food blogging). This week I tried to take a range of pictures, but some foodie shots still managed to sneak their way in:

Anytime I took a photo I tried to make sure that there were no shadows (mainly my own) or eyesores. Depending on the content of the picture, whether there were light or dark colours, if the picture was already naturally dark, I would choose a filter which would either add contrast to darken or lighten the image. Choosing where to distribute the image depended on the picture itself. If it was of food, it went to my blog and sometimes my Facebook page, for example.

About babblingbitty

My name is Emily and I am currently completing my Masters in Rhetoric and Communication Design. I have a strange (or adorable) obsession with my dog, and am a horribly cliche Instagrammer, snapping pictures of food at every opportunity. I’m a (proud) feminist, but internet shy. I love to lurk and observe, but am lacking confidence in participation. In my spare time I lose hours of my life in Minecraft, spend time with my partner and try to get outdoors for at least fifteen minutes a day. I am also an avid baker with the unhealthy habit of eating icing with a spoon (but you only live once, right?).
