Instagram

I recently discovered Instagram. At first I was hesitant to post images because I thought my images deserved to be uploaded and viewed at a much larger resolution--I have professional equipment, why would I want to show off my work next to images that were taken with a iPhone camera??

Yes, there is rampant abuse of filters, frames, and over-the-top vintage, but who cares? Many old school photographers will shun Instagram and miss sharing their images with an entirely new audience.

Then it dawned on me that I have thousands of "less than perfect" images that I've never shared because I thought that they were flawed. By flawed I mean that the images would not be accepted at a micro-stock agency or ones that I could not print super large due to shutter-shake, focus, poor framing, etc. On Instagram, nobody will notice these imperfections.

I'm now going back through my entire catalog of images and editing them on my iPad with either the Instagram or SnapSeed app (<------ is a super amazing free app that works flawlessly on the iPad; I'll write a blog post dedicated to it's awesomeness soon.) My goal is to upload one image a day.

Here is a an image I took on my Sony Alpha 850 that I processed with SnapSeed:
