Instagram photos

March and April 2020: Instagram photos: As the old saying goes, whats the best camera? And the answer is always the same, the best camera is the one you have on you at the time. This saying is so true.

A phone camera is handy as it is generally always with you wherever you go. Bear this in mind when you are out walking or even at home and see any interesting texture, light or a moment in time worth capturing.

Although I use a DSLR for the commissions I undertake, outside of these a camera phone is ideal. I’m constantly looking for anything that catches my eye wherever I may be and a phone camera is always there to capture the image or images. Instagram is a good platform to post the images that feel are worth sharing.

Below are a few shots that I have taken whilst out on local (Lockdown) walks. I’ve put them in sets of three to add interest. The common theme is nature, but that is because there is a lot of nature around where I live. They are also without people.

I tend to look up, down and generally all around when out on these walks – if there is anything that I feel is interesting in any way (be it colour, light, texture, arrangement of objects or words written on a wall) I will take a photo. Not all the images work but some can look strong; remember interesting angles, close ups, symmetry, even asymmetry, just take an image and see if it looks worth posting.
