Going Mobile with Instagram

Bean Machine

Bean Machine: Taking a moment to capture my morning ritual has become, at the time of writing, my most liked photo on Instagram.

I’ve been easing my way into the whole social media thing over the last year or so. From Facebook to Twitter to Google+ and now Instagram.

Instagram is an app and online community designed for sharing photos made on mobile phones. Some choose to show DSLR shots, but it is pretty much frowned upon. The idea is to share your view of the world instantly. Shoot on your phone, process on your phone, upload from your phone. Boom, the world see’s the world as you see it!

I’ve known of the app for quite a while, actually had it installed, but I hadn’t signed up because I didn’t want to worry about yet another online community to keep track of. After hearing a couple of my favorite Pro Photographers, Jeremy Cowart and Zack Arias, talk about it I decided to give it a try. I uploaded some images and followed a few people.

Shortly after I took the iPhoneography Workshop on Creative Live. The Jack Hollingworth led video stream not only got me more excited about shooting with my mobile phone, it opened my eyes to the inspiration and fun of the community part. You get to see what people from all over the world are seeing as well as what images they like.

My Can’t Put Down The Camera! site will remain my main chronological photo stream (most of the images came from my DSLR after all), but if you have an iPhone, Instagram is well worth checking out.

Below is a gallery of my most recent uploades. The full feed can be found on gramfeed or you can find me in the app by searching for @uberdoodles.

About Chris Wulff

I like to make pictures. Sometimes they move across the screen, sometimes they move you. I draw with fire on wood, with my finger on a phone, with a keyboard and fancy filters and sometimes even with a pencil on paper. I use a camera to capture what I see and my imagination to capture what I can't see.
