The iPhone is getting me to shoot in situations where a conventional camera cannot, unobtrusively. I also love to be able to post process my images right after I take them.
Instagram is my favorite method of broadcasting my vision to the world and to be inspired by other people’s vision of the world.
My love for photography started at a very young age, I think I was about 7 years old when my father first introduced me to photography. I vividly remember the first time I heard the beautiful sound of the camera shutter of his Zenit-E Special Russian Olympics and I instantly felt in love with it.

I feel that Instagram has refueled my passion for photography. It's challenges you to get better shot by shot. I've recently affiliated myself with the IgersLA group. We go out on Instawalks and helps me meet other IGers in the L.A area. I've taken a couple of film photography classes.
The iPhone and Instagram have single-handedly turned my world upside down. Mobile photography is still a relatively new community that I could not be happier to be a part of, I've met a lot of great people and inspiring artists. My personal history with cameras include taking Photography I & II in high school and the rest is learning on my own as I go.
I am a language challenged, chocolate loving, perfectionistic Norwegian in my best age:), married to a German prince, living in the Netherlands, CEO of two pirates and a little princess and last but not least a self-taught freelance lifestyle photographer and loving every minute of it.
A student from Berlin who recently fell in love with street photography!! All this happened because of Instagram and that's where i spend a lot of time :) Still new to mobile photography and trying to learn something every day! All pictures taken and edited on an iPhone 4. It's the only camera i use!!
I am a 20 year old student currently studying digital photography at university. I am interested in mostly architectural, candid, documentary and street photography, I still have a lot to learn but I try to vary the type of photography I do in order to learn new things that will help me in the future.
I grew up in Paris where my father worked at the International Herald Tribune; my mother is an artist. Much of the reason I moved to NYC for school is that I had started modeling and going to school here at least legitimized it a bit for my overbearing parents. I think up until a year or so ago, I had tried/worked/done everything *but* photography. I've been in some films. I've written quite a few published works and have been published many times.
I started using Instagram a while back when Japan was hit with the earthquake in March and everyone was very fearful and uneasy. At that time I took a peek at the Instagram popular feed and saw a photo of the Japanese national flag and the words "Pray for Japan". Seeing this, I remember feeling deeply moved and at peace. I felt happiness knowing the world was tied together as one. At that time, more than words, I truly felt the magnificence of "Photo Communication".
I put my first steps on the long road of photography. I travel this road in search of emotion seized by the moment, especially in the street with ... my phone. An anxious look, a bright smile, an outstretched hand, a ray of sunshine ... I want to be moved and to move people. I want to"capture" people's energy and transfer it to those who look at my photos.
I'm not a professional photographer, but just a man who obsessed with iPhone apps. Instagram is a great tool to communicate with many people visually. At first, I started it for polishing my English skills along with twitter. But now, Instagram has become a daily habit not only taking and posting photos, but also communicating with many internet friends living in countries I have never been. It would not have been possible without this app.
I'm 27 and a soon to be elementary school teacher. I love all things old and vintage and the funky sign culture we have here in Los Angeles. I also find beauty in urban decay or parts of the city that have been neglected. It's been so much fun photographing and sharing this unique side of Los Angeles to everyone on Instagram.
