It’s Tuesday and it’s time for my blogging group to post our weekly blog topic. This week we had the option of writing about our favorite photos and it could include our Instagram pictures. I chose to write about my Instagram pics, but I couldn’t narrow down my favorites! So instead, I’m posting about the app and how I use it for my business.
In case you haven’t heard of it, Instagram is an application on most smart phones for sharing pictures. You can crop, edit, add a funky filter, frame it, and even create a bokeh (blur) type effect.
What I LOVE the most about Instagram is how easy it is to share my pictures. Once I’ve edited the photo, I have it automatically set to post the picture to a number of social photo sites. The options include Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Tumblr, and Flickr!
I like to use Instagram not just for my personal life, but also for my business at times. Every now and then I’ll post what I’m doing on a shoot. This has been a lot of fun to see my clients’ family and friends react to what my clients are up to during our shoot. My makeup artist, Mollie McGrath of Pinup Salon, will often be the one who snaps an instagram pic or two so I can share what we’ve been up to :). Thanks, Mollie!
