I’m still having fun posting some of my film photographs on Instagram. I’m still saving photos to my phone using the Flickr iPhone app, and then cropping them and applying filters. But I’ve expanded my filtering horizons by using other photo-editing apps too, ususally Aviary, but sometimes PhotoToaster or BeFunky.
This is great fun. I’m really just farting around with filters and cropping, not thinking about what I’m doing too much (which I find freeing; I tend to overthink things). I stop when the image makes me feel good. I’m starting to master hashtagging, which is helping others find my photos and me find other film photographers on Instagram. If you’d like to follow me on Instagram, here’s a link.
Here are a few of my favorite recent Instagram photos.
I barely filtered this photo of the Bridgeton covered bridge – just enough to bring out the golden tones in the wood and boost the contrast a little. I used my Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 80 for this shot, and probably Kodak Gold 200 film.
In contrast, I cropped and filtered the bejebus out of this black-and-white photo, which I took at the 2010 Mecum auction using my Argus A-Four and Fujifilm Neopan 100 Acros.
Filtering really brought the sunscatter out in this photo I took with my Kodak Pony 135 on Fujicolor 200.
Here’s a big gallery of many other photos from my Instagram stream.
