For as long as I have had a cell phone, I have made use of its camera. It’s fast, convenient and inconspicuous. As much as I have been pretty disinterested in digital photography lately, I still love using my iPhone for pictures and Instagram for sharing.
Aside from flickr and this blog, I don’t really show my photos anywhere. Facebook used to be a good place to share pictures with family and friends (which I still do on occasion) but with the uneasiness of its forever changing privacy settings, I found myself deleting a lot of my albums (yes, I know nothing is ever deleted off the internet and there is no such thing as privacy).
I love to be able to document myself, places, food, people (and dogs) as I come across them. I love film a lot, I love the slowness and the process and the results, but there are still times I do miss being able capture and edit a picture within minutes and share it with others (I can’t even get that with my DSLR).
I don’t use Instagram for publicity or as a showcase of my work, maybe I could in the future. Right now it just a really good representation of the things I love, the things I find interesting and the stuff I get up to.
