To print or not to print Instagram photos...
Raise your hand if you feel Instagram is your favourite social media app ever? Yeap... I knew we will be friends fast. No we it's time to take our love above even beyond to print Instagram photos.
Instagram, for peeps like you and I, has become so important in our lifes not only because it added a new the way to express ourselves, in addition to some posts and tweets; thanks to this app, we discover, or better yet, unwrapped, this hidden talent, unattended hoobie and passion we knew we had before but we were not really investing enough time on it, people call it, the love for photography.
Guilty of charge, I've honed my expertise on filters, lighting tools, the use of perspective, shadows, contrast (you name it!). My smartphone is now out of memory not only from the amount of photos I've taken, but also due to the so many additional apps I've downloaded to make my photos even better.
By the moment I click share, I am actually fund for the final result. I enjoy seeing how my little piece performs in social media, how it looks on my overview page and fits perfectly into my gallery. I also like to see how others connect to it and share their own pieces around, but there is something missing, all this magic and joy that creating and sharing this pieces brign us it's lacking of that last.. let's call it... closure. I've reached out many times to my fellow insta-photographers (yes, that's how we call each other), and we share the same feelings, in one of our multiple conversations it was actually @HubPhoto who actually said:
"Our phones turned into a gene's bottle, once you don't have it in your hands, the magic is gone" Tweet this.
