Let's look back on a year filled with adventures before throwing ourselves into a new 2018. In an era of digitalisation our Instagram feeds has certainly, for many, turned into our most important visual diaries. Allowing us to easily scroll back to remember all those good moments we've lived. It has also become one of the most important sources for inspiration, so lets find some inspiration from our community.
@tfreiij turned her instagoods into a lovely Poster Calendar. She's a wizard when it comes to composition and we wanted to know more about what she likes about Instagram and how she uses it.
In what way do you use Instagram and what camera is your tool when capturing?
I photograph a lot with my iPhone and I do use Instagram as a diary but also as a great excuse to edit and make the photos I take look really good. It helps me to keep my camera roll not too full.
This is not your first time printing - why do you like to print your photos?
I print simply because I think it's so much fun to get them off my device and delivered in a physical format. I put some of them on the wall or gift them away to friends and family. Always very appreciated!
@brgmnanna choosed her best 9 from Instagram and turned them into a Square Poster. Her color scaled feed along with inspiring surf- and travel shots are what characterise her visual expression the most, something that's quite obvious when looking at her blue poster.
What camera do you use?
I photograph some with my iPhone 8 but mainly I use my Fuji x-t20 and I edit in Lightroom. I then save my favourites in iCloud or on Google Drive. That makes it easy for me to access them from all my devices and I can easily upload them on Instagram in the best quality possible (a very good thing when eventually printing).
What's it like to get your digital photos as physical prints?
It's so much more fun than you could actually imagine. Every time I look at them all memories comes to life. It's really something special to get them printed. I have some Framed Big Prints as well with some of my own photos. It's really cool to decorate your walls with your own art.
