I’m going to start a routine of posting my pictures from Instagram once a week here so that you don’t have to be an instagram user to see them. I just signed up for it and I LOVE IT! I love looking at everyone else’s pictures and taking my own. It’s a really great creative outlet!!
It’s cool to capture images in a square format because as I learned in History of Photography, square photos provide the viewer with a very different narrative than long format photos would because the subject of the picture is much more limited to what’s in the field of the photo space.
The idea behind instagram is to take photos in the instant when something happens, allowing both the taker and the viewer to experience the image like you would back in the day when Polariods were the hip thing to do.
I’m excited about this because I’ve never been a fan of taking pictures, and it’s a shame because I don’t have very many from my high school through college years. It’ll be fun to look back at these with friends and family as time goes by. I’m excited!
Regardless if you want to follow me on Instagram my name is: “DHa Forsmartchicks”
Have a great week!
