Right, so I’m on Instagram now. Actually, I’ve been for awhile but didn’t really use the service til now since I didn’t think it was really necessary since I’m on so many different photography-related social media sites already. However, it’s a really fun way to share pictures, especially from a camera phone.
Actually, the primary reason I got myself on Instagram is to try out posting pictures from my 5D3 on the go. It sounds sort of complicated but it really isn’t. Basically JPEG copies of pictures taken by my 5D are sent wirelessly to my iPad (the RAW file stays in the camera), where I can edit and post to Instagram. Results? High resolution photos treated with Instagram’s ridiculous filters. Tried it out for the first time this past week at a media event for Ocean Wise and the Vancouver Aquarium.
It’s a cool experiment and a fun way to post everyday camera phone photos from my daily routines so if you’re on Instagram, follow me and let me know so I can check out your photos as well!
