I’ve seen other bloggers write Instagram roundups and I love the idea. I might make this a regular thing if people like it.
If some of you hadn’t noticed, Instagram is my favourite social networking site. I like it because it puts emphasis on visuals and I enjoy working around the restrictions of the media to create beautiful shots.
There are so many amazing instagramers out there who are genuinely talented and don’t just rely on a filter to make their photos look good. Whilst many of the people I follow capture everyday scenes, I also follow people who are artists, designers, crafters or just everyday IG’ers. Here are my top five instgrammers from this December.
Ingrid Petrie is behind the handle @ingridpetriedesign. She’s a graphic designer based in Scotland who sells prints of cute and whimsical designs.
I first came across Corinne Alexandra via her blog, also called Stuck with Pins. She’s a designer. illustrator, photographer and a collector of the macabre. I particularly love how she frames her bone collections for interesting shots.
Carly Morris is one of those instagrammers who uses her account to share her professional photography. Her feed is packed with delicate macro shots of water droplets clinging to petals and tiny insects.
The @skull_society bio reads “Welcome to a world of skulls” and their posts definitely deliver on this. From, graffiti to paintings and from illustrations to sculpture, if the subject matter contains a skull, the Skull Appreciation Society will post it.
Nicholas Goodden is probably one of the most talented urban photographers I’ve seen recently. Oh – and he’s been named in the Top 100 Most Socially Influential Photographers. Rather than capturing a building or structure in it’s entirety, Goodden exploits unusual perspectives to make us see our everyday surroundings differently.
