After my long flirtation with Instagram I'm back to blogging, despite being riddled with guilt for this neglect. During my period of absenteeism I find that Blogger has undergone so many changes and revamps that I feel quite lost and left behind. So, I'm going to start off gently and post some of my iPhone pix to prove that I have been busy with my photography albeit in a different medium.
Instagram is the THE most addictive photosharing app on iphone. It's the work of a couple of seconds to upload pix after spending some enjoyable time editing them with one of the dozens of photography apps from the iTunes shop. Forget Photoshop, for sheer fun and spontaneity there's nothing to beat an iPhone and IG (instagram).
The IG community is friendly and enthusastic and it's easy to gather followers who give feedback on your pix. As you begin to follow other photographers, it's wonderful to see pictures posted by people all over the world, from Russia and the Far East or Europe and the Americas. IG walks are organised by groups of people from the same towns and it looks as if Cape Town will soon have a group of its own.
So if you have an iphone and you enjoy "shooting from the hip" I urge you to give the IG community a try. But be warned it's addictive.
A final word : The photographs you see on my blog are all taken by me. The cami21 watermark is what I use for my pix on IG. Just saying ...
