May Instagram Overload

30 May 2012

So I guess that May 2012 will go down as the month I finally got accustomed to the ways of the iPhone (though there is still many an incomprehensible text) and got snap happy with the magic of Instagram.  Now, I've got enough apps to distract a small country and I'm gladly rediscovering some of my favourite 2007 music thanks to iTunes.  I wasn't sure at first if I'd take part in a regular pictorial round up, but after such a positive response to the last post, I've decided to do a post summarising all of my mobile goings on at the end of every month.  There's something about a mixture of photos collaged together randomly, that displays the way I capture things and hopefully I'll keep seeing things that excite me so much that I want to photograph them.  I do need to stop exclaiming 'Instagram!' at these moments though and be a little more stealth when doing so.

Recently I've discovered these posts by Gala Darling and Krisatomic on how to improve iPhone photos and it's really helped me (and increased my app count).  Now, I no longer feel that leaving my DSLR at home is a wasted oppurtunity and love having a visual sort of diary on my phone that people can see.  I also love having a nosey at what everyone is doing and seeing the random elements that make up their lives, please say I'm not alone?  You really start to pick up on all the details that make up an individual and what they find interesting.  What have you been capturing this month?  It feels like May has gone so quickly and contained about three different seasons, so hopefully June will be more consistent!  Remember to follow me @fashionknitsta on Instagram to see all of my updates.
