1001 reasons why you should instagram

someone would seriously have to be crazy to come up with that many reasons.

My photo pep talk today, is simple.
It's to get a smart phone with a good enough camera & download instagram.
Even if you create an account, and keep it private with no followers.

Oh, and when looking into buying new cell phones-
checking out its camera, should be number one!

Don't just rely on the most expensive one - or the one the sales people say is best..  They have trial cameras in the store and go practice on them to compare quality.
When I was with T-Mobile we got the most expensive one- thinking it was suppose to be really good according to sales reps- and my sister had the one right below mine & hers took by far better quality images!! I have now switched to a different cell phone provider and got an iphone- which i love.
But to me, it was soo worth the cancellation fees!

Instagram is now on both Android Market & Apple - so the only excuse you could have as to why you do not have an instagram- is because
you live in the Dark Ages & refuse to upgrade.
Kinda like my dad

Why should you?
Because seriously there is no better or easier way
for you, to be able to take daily pictures & easily go print them.
plus it's a 1,001x cooler than facebook, just sayin

I really, really struggle to find the time to go through and print our blog blook-
I want my post to line up with the order of pictures & that literally would take me a good year to do!
Lucky for me, I started instagramming around January or February,
so by the end of this year I will most likely at least have one small image to remember each day by.
sure, it's not all the images i took this year..
but atleast I will actually be printing them!

No Clue what Instagram is? it's a phone app - that is basically like a Facebook mini-feed of just pictures
and you don't have to follow everyone and their mom

Why I wouldn't recommend bedazzling out your photos:
Let's see..
I have done that to a couple of images here and there but seriously at the end of the year- I want majority of my photos to not really look too crazy! Like the stickers... i did this to one - and decided that was the last- If bedazzling is your thing, I'd recommend to keep it simple or stick with the same look...

APPS i favor:

I actually use the in-edits for Instagram a good majority of the time,
VSCO cam, InstaCollage, Typic, and Whitagram!
I have a bunch of others (6 or so more) on my phone that never get used

Oh, the possibilities
This little neat video below is just a trial possibility,
but wouldn't it be amazing??

  2. question, and this may be completely stupid, but how do you get more than 1 pic in your instagram photos? i have an iphone and I dont see this setting. is it a separate app that you use to edit it and then go to instagram?
