Abstract

Instagram, are you on it? Have you dismissed it? Instagram the mobile phone photography App created by Kevin Systrom an American entrepreneur/programmer and Mike Krieger a Brazilian entrepreneur/software engineer. The App that’s filled with photography created by amateurs and professionals alike. Instagram, the new gateway to photography? Let me explain. I’m not an early adopter of any form of hard or software so it took four years for me to open an Instagram account. I didn’t ‘get’ why I needed it, despite hearing tales of photographer’s work being ‘discovered’ by high-paying clients amongst its many supposed ‘positive’ features. It seemed like a platform I could take or leave so for a few years I left it alone.
