Back in November my hip, young niece told me I had to start a gallery on Instagam. I did and then I panicked – I had no idea what I wanted to put in it. I didn’t want to post personal stuff – my life isn’t that interesting. I did want it to hold together in some way photographically but I wasn’t sure how. So it sat there empty until I decided to shoot the same scene every morning and see what came of it.
I had a few ‘conditions’ for taking on a new Social Media site.
1. It had to be fun 2. It couldn’t take longer than the time it takes to drink my morning coffee 3. I wouldn’t leave my backyard. I happen to be blessed in several ways – I love coffee, I’m fairly competent at operating my Samsung Galaxy S4 and my backyard has unrestricted coastal views over tidal marsh.
When I started with Instagram, I was shooting with my phone camera and doing some rudimentary processing. In December I bought a new camera, the Olympus OMD EM1, which has wifi capabilities. This, combined with of a few phone apps like SnapSeed, PhotoShopExpress and SquareDroid – is the perfect combination for an easy, fun filled morning photo shoot!
Thanks for taking a look and if you like, follow me on Instagram!
