NYC eats its young. Chomp, chomp! Street art. East Village, New York City.
This is my weekly mobile photography post. I hit my one month anniversary of when I first started using Instagram and dabbling in the world of mobile photography a week or so ago. I really never expected to have so much fun with mobile photography!
The community(ies) on Instagram is/are wonderful if you know where to look. I have found so many truly talented artists on there (lots of people involved in surrealism which has blown my mind) and it’s probably one of the most interactive and engaging photography hubs currently (aside from some of the other larger traditional social networks). If you stay away from the popular page (although there are some gems to be found there at times), and really explore, you can find real treasures there.
Prior to a month or so ago, I didn’t really understand mobile photography. I thought that people were just taking photos and applying the pre-made Instagram filters and that was that. However, I have learned that there are so many quality photo-editing mobile apps out there and an infinite amount of ways you can add your own style to mobile photography just like ‘regular’ photography. I have also noticed that there is a rather active and stunning world of street photography and documentary photography out there that I would have never come across had I not ventured into mobile photography. And it’s so much more than just Instagram. With other photo-sharing networks like EyeEm, StreamZoo and Facebook’s venture into its own camera app, the future seems bright for mobile photography.
