Instagram :: April 2012

Expression of daily life with Instagram and iPhoneography continues. Though I’ve been less active than previous months lately, I’m happy to post the monthly update to recap April 2012.

Seattle, trains, mountains, views, record store day, a new facebook page, rooftops and art shows all caught my attention this past month…

Instagram :: December 2011

Holidays, a new year, road trips, glorious hikes in the redwoods of California and a trip to NY. All of that kept me pretty busy in December. Still loving iPhoneography through Instagram, and absolutely loving the Snapseed app from Nik Software, where I process at least half of my mobile images these days.

Instagram :: July 2011

Another stellar month with Instagram and my iPhone 4. Lots of travel all up and down the West coast had me swimming with excitement of new places and far away lands of the Western United States. I can say this for sure, if you ever get the chance to drive US Route 1 north of San Francisco to it’s end where it meets the 101, and then up into Oregon, do it!

You can catch up on part of our journey on my previous post here, and I’ve got a host of personal project images made on the July road trips coming your way in August. Stay tuned for more images from landscapes and cityscapes of California the Pacific Northwest.

Instagram :: June 2011

June was a cool month for Instagramming…

I got revived with some true street inspiration this month, and went back to some of my urban/street photography roots. I joined Doctor Popular and Photojojo for an eventful instawalk in San Francisco (#instawalksf) where we rambled all over Chinatown for a few hours. The best part was picking up a fisheye lens for my iPhone and becoming instantly addicted to the thing! I think it’s going to be my new go to tool for keeping iPhone street walks interesting.

My new photo friend, Felix Lim (@fixelzero) and I decided to ramble onwards to downtown and after starting at 11am, ended up photowalking until around 9pm that night… It’s a real treat wandering around and shooting with Felix as we have about 33% overlap in our style and 66% difference on our vision, so we end up with really cool and often completely unique perspectives on the same city block. After covering miles and miles and dozens of those blocks on this instawalk, we came out with some cool complimentary images. Felix goes for people and gestures in place, and is a master of seeking and capturing these great black and white compositions with a person or two in them that just make the image. I tend to stick to grit, details, wide industrial views, and close focus tilt/shift type images of street scenes.

Hoping I can spend one day each month on a walk like this. I really like the idea of using a simple point n shoot camera like the iPhone, getting some snaps, processing them in the phone directly through the Instagram app or other iPhone software like Camera+ or Noir, and keeping it simple. I tend to process on the fly, usually right after shooting the image, and post directly to my feed. The beauty of all this to me is simplicity. The only time these images touch my computer is when they’re getting backed up onto a hard drive, and so I can post the processed images here on my website/blog. It’s refreshing to use such a simple process to deliver images, and anyone can do it. The more people you follow on instagram, the more interesting perspectives you gain from all over the world.

Happy Instagramming!
