Before the dawn of Smartphones and apps like Instagram, we photographers always liked to carry a camera with us for a high percentage of the time, be it your SLR camera or a compact of some description.
The reason was simple. You never know what you would come across during your day and you certainly would not want to miss out on that ‘photographic opportunity.’ In practice though we did not always take a camera with us.
For a fair while now we have had the phones and the apps with us and their usefulness increases each year.
One of my favourite apps is now Instagram. Whilst the images cannot be enlarged all that much I am taking more and images this way. I still use my DSLR for my business and serious personal projects however when I don’t have my DSLR with me I enjoy pulling out the camera and taking shots of images that impress me as I go about my daily routines.
I have included a few here however please feel free to check out my Instagram page.
If you don’t have an Instagram page as yet, consider having one. I feel it helps me continue to ‘train my eye’ on a daily basis and it’s a lot of fun too!
