Look Up

It was only Tuesday of this week that I was floundering like a fish out of water trying to take pictures with my iPhone using Instagram. But, I have been using it religiously to take pictures over the past couple of days and I have to admit, I've been quite pleased with the results.  Today I took this picture whilst out on my dog walk, it's had a little pre-processing work on it in Picnik.

This is quite an interesting article from the BBC posing the question if Instagram is making everyone's photography look the same -

Can we be users of Instagram and yet still infuse the photo with our own style? I would love to hear your thoughts!


  1. Really interesting article. I don't have a smart phone, so don't use instagram. But do get a little sick of seeing hundreds of generic retro looking snaps all over facebook. But then when in the hands of someone who knows how to compose an interesting picture the results can be fantastic. I guess its the same with all kinds of photography. Some people know how to do it and some don't! I do find it annoying when looking at examples of people's work and they have been taken using instagram. As they don't give a clear image or true colours. I don't understand why you would do that. Ra ra ra rant rant rant. Your picture is beautiful by the way.
