Snap happy

Look! A midweek update! I mentioned in the last post that I'd recently hopped onto the instagram bandwagon. I don't actually have an iPhone - I've got an iPod Touch, but it still works on it (I just have to be connected to the net to upload pictures). I didn't really understand the craze before I tried it, but I must say, I'm addicted. Here are some snapshots from the past week.

  
  
  
I like the freedom I get with it - my iPod's not bulky or inconvenient to take places (unlike my DSLR, as much as I love it) and much less conspicuous. When I'm shooting with my DSLR, I almost feel pressured to take a "perfect" pictures - in focus, not blurry, nicely composed, etc.; but it doesn't feel like it matters with instagram (probably because the filters make the picture look nicer than it really is, aha). For those of you who aren't fans, never fear - I'm probably not going to replace my usual photos with instagram ones. I'll probably just use it to do a fortnightly/monthly round-up sort of thing.

And, yes... I really should be studying right now.

  1. Lovely snapshots! I know what you mean about the filter making pretty much all photographs look nice; totes the reason ALL MINE are Cinemascoped before going up.

  13. I love Instagram photos :) Yes maybe the filters are a bit of cheating, but a great way of cheating. I use Camera+ all the time... But I really need to get a good camera asap!

    Have a nice weekend! //Niina

  20. It's so freeing when you don't have to carry your clunky camera around! I don't do it very often though. I use a program called Picplz, which is similar to Instagram. If it weren't for apps like this, pics on my camera phone would be super crappy!

  21. I like your selection of photos very much :) the selection of colours is simply so peaceful and still..

  22. Is it bad that I want an iPhone solely for Instagram? Haha. My contract for my blackberry runs out next September so I think I will have to finally join the iPhone brigrade. And I know what you mean about DSLRs, they are not very good for family events and stuff because you have to explain to everyone what button to press and everything. Your photos are lovely, they really have a vintage feel to them. xxx

  24. i just got an iphone the other week and i feel the same about instagram vs. DSLR. sometimes it's easier to just use your phone and you don't have to worry about editing it in photoshop or making it perfect, you can just use the filters in instagram! :)

  25. Lovely shots! My iPhone is my default camera these days when I'm out and about - much more convenient. And instagram is sooo addictive!

  26. i loooooove how these ones came out! you can almost never tell the difference between these and lomo prints. and it makes me quite sad that maybe i shouldn't have invested in all these toy cameras, develop film and try so hard to produce something the instagram can create in a click of a button x
