Instagram And Other Photography Apps

on Oct 27, 2011
I've been playing with 'instagram' since it's inception but I stop playing with it almost the same time I started it... I don't know the reason but I guess is down to my antique 'iPhone 2G' that I'm using... I'm very sure most of you know that the camera on the first generation 'iPhone' sucks BIG time... So I took a few pictures and posted it online and that's about it...

Recently, I don't know what got into me but I'm actually quite addicted to it... But I didn't take those pictures with my 'iPhone'... Instead I took it with my 'iPad 2'... I know the camera sucks as well but frankly speaking, taking pictures with 'iPad' is much nicer in my opinion... You may look like a fool to most people but I just don't care about them... They can laugh and label me as a moron for using an 'iPad' for photography but that's what I enjoy doing...

The experience of using 'instagram' with 'iPad' is totally different with 'iPhone'... Everything is much nicer now... I can fully appreciate the pictures I took and those that I follow because everything is BIGGER... I don't have to use a magnifying glass in order to view pictures now and this is what got me hooked I guess... Is true that pictures taken with 'iPhone 4' is much more better in terms of quality but to me, 'instagram' is not about picture quality... If you want good quality photos, please use the 'DSLR' or any dedicated camera and NOT your camera phone... For me, taking pictures using 'instagram' is more towards feel... I can't really explain this but the feel must be there... But this is purely base on my personal preference... 

Another reason I'm hooked is that there are a lot of good photographers in 'instagram' and it is always a delight to see their pictures... 


By installing different photography apps, you can virtually create any kind of pictures that you desire... No messy photoshop work to get those 'cross process' colour that I love... Besides that, I don't have to waste a fortune on lens as well... No fish eye lens, no problem... Just install 'Lomo Lomo' (one of my favourite apps for photography) and viola... As easy as 'ABC'!!!


Below are some of my favourite pictures that I took using 'instagram' and others photography apps...




I can even combine two or more pictures and turning it into one picture... Take this picture for example... I used two different pictures and turning it into one... There is a meaning in this picture but I don't really know whether people can understand what I'm trying to portray here... If I separate this picture into two different pictures, I won't be able to portray the meaning of it... 












So happy 'instagraming' guys!!! Btw, if you like to add me just search for my username 'nothingmuchdave'!!! Peace out for now...
