Shot Notes

One of the reasons I take pictures .. such in really take pictures with ISO and aperture etc etc – is because i think it’s funny and I like to create a history or maybe a feeling when somebody look at my pictures. I love to combine the light, the object/person, the angle, the technology to create “the perfect picture”. I’ll gladly walk around with a 2 kg (4.4 pounds) camera in case I find something interesting. I also love the post production in lightroom/photoshop to make the foto even better.
I even love putting my pictures online and see the stats how many of you guys visit my site…

But now..
Everything is done on my iPhone!
(.. or maybe I’m just very slow! Although I have had my Instagram account for 3 years)

Doing this summer my Canon 7D has not been used more a couple of times. No… now i use my iPhone and Instagram.
I don’t have to think about aperture and all that and the post production is just a couple of clicks and then you done.
Is that good or bad?

I have round about 3 times more followers (/visitors) on Instagram (and that’s NOT much compared to others) that I have on this site so my pictures reach out more.
And that’s what its really about? or ?

I dont know but I think that Instagram kills my “perfect picture”.. 😉

In the future some of my instagram pictures will appear here on my blog.. and maybe the other way around too.Btw.. the picture is taken and editet on an iPhone and are online on Instagram

    Felix:

    I do both. Instagram and “real” photography.
    And actually, I also shoot film from time to time.
    But, as you, I love my real photos the most.
    I only have a very slow Samsung mobile phone with a lousy 5 MP camera and awful photo capabilities.. But it’s still an option for 2 purposes:
    1) instant photography (hence: Instagram)
    2) replacement when my camera is unavailable

    I too love shooting a real photo, planning the shoot, nerding ISO, shutter speed and all that stuff. And I love the postprocessing in Lightroom and occasionally Photoshop and I’m proud of my Flickr account.

    But I’m not stubborn or oldfashioned in any way, and I see a lot of good things in instant photography too. I see it as a challenge: Combine your photography skills with your social media skills and make the most of it.
    And when looking at it this way, it’s not really comparable.. But yes, it sometimes takes away the time I spend on “real” photography and maybe, when having my camera AND my mobile present, I should practise prefering my digital camera more often instead of choosing the instant, easy mobile solution.

    Hope you know what I mean 🙂
