The Beauty of Instagram

Photographs speak volumes to me. Everything around me is a subject begging to be captured, loathing for a lens to focus on it and embrace its beauty. Most of the people who love a specific photograph often credit the camera than the person who took it. People should know that perspective is not something that comes easily. Okay I am getting away from the point. So, photographs have a really powerful influence. It is something that you capture and from that point in the space-time dimension it becomes fully immortal.

Instagram is the most widely used photo sharing application till date. It is founded by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. Now, it has been taken over by Facebook. If you haven’t used this photo sharing social media app already you should know it is used by most of the people to apply certain filters to their images. It makes certain perfect photos even better (as impossible as it sounds). Last year Instagram even started their video feature, which allows you to take a short clip and add features to it. We have seen so many go viral in the past year its crazy!

So, Instagram is probably the most powerful app around that just beautifies everything. I am not so good at taking photos. I own an iPhone 5 which I love very much and more than I love my phone as a whole, I love the camera. I am always taking photographs of trees paired up with the sun and the clouds, certain flowers, sunset everything and anything related to the nature. You would find very less photos on my Instagram (id: kjroger94) which are not related to the nature. Instagram takes my average looking photo and adds a whole new oomph to it.

I love what the filters do to my photograph. Apart from this filter, there is this small option you can apply on the photo which makes the dark elements of your photos even darker. You can use this to enhance the effect of clouds and the sunlight. It does not always ideal in every situation but yes mostly. Here is what I did with my clouds.

College. The clouds were dark but this gave it a distinct detail

Instagram is not just helping me share what I can create but also help me discover something beautiful. Use the hashtags to search for something and the results will be nothing less than incredible. With Instagram you cannot just create eye soothing images but also discover them, videos too. Here is an example how Instagram changes your images with each filter:

Here are some of my favourite pictures I have taken, I prefer the X Pro II filter almost 95% of the time.
