Go rebel, drop instagram

ok, now that you’ve just shot your last one-hundred-thousand instagram pic, it’s all about this: will you choose Nashville or 1977, Earlybird or Amaro? Maybe you’re wondering.. hey, why the hell they do not add some more filters?? Do they really want me to try some other app??? In a while, crocodile…
Yes, instagram is getting boring and all those pics taken by over one billion users look all the same. Let’s be clear: you can get some good, or even great shots with instagram (for example, look here!!); but photography is something more than adding vintage-look-like filters. So before you download another super-smart-and-very-artistic-app, looking for a new awesome-magic effect, consider what your smartphone can really do with that 8 megapixels camera
Yes, photography is about storytelling. You can try different subjects.. portrait, landscapes.. doesn’t matter, but if you lack the story you miss everything. Now, I know that all you instagramers have a lot of stories to share so.. just show us!
Dark as a dungeon
You can also try something abstract.. but, be careful: abstract must make sense!!
The golden rule
No, nothing to do with the golden hour. It’s not the hour you shot, but the hour you post. I mean.. we all want to share pics one minute after we’ve taken, after all… that’s the web, baby! But BE REBEL, wait a couple of hours… just the time to go back home, and watch your pictures again. Now: if while you’re watching a shot, you’re asking: is this good? – then probably you’ve got something to share. But if you’re asking: should I try another app? – then probably you have not!
