All the Cool Kids
… have Instagram these days apparently. I recently got my mobile phone upgraded (HTC Desire C if anyone’s interested – and it is gorgeous!) so thought I’d give this thing a go and see what all the fuss was about.
At first I was a bit sceptical, because I’ve been trying to learn Photoshop and frankly this seemed a little too easy. Kinda like cheating. But the effects… well the effects are actually quite nice. I wouldn’t ever pretend that a lot of effort has gone into them, but it does give you a neat, quick way to make photos look different (or rather, look the same as everyone else’s… But still cute).
Thought I’d share with you a few of mine, just to brag. Look how awesome I am!
From right to left they are as follows:
1- Rarotonga sunset
2- Mt. Tongariro; North Island, New Zealand (the one that erupted recently!)
3- Sunrise at Angkor Wat, Cambodia
4- Me… heavily air-brushed!
5- Me again, playing with light (both this and the above were done in a studio. Someone gifted me a shoot.)
So yeah, couple of button presses and boom! some fairly effective photos.
Let me know what you think. Or share your own!
