Regular readers probably came to the realisation a while ago that I’m addicted to Instagram. I credit my developing interest in photography to this little app, as it has opened my eyes to the possibilities of capturing life through a camera lens.
My favourite imagery tends to feature beautiful, dramatic landscapes or quirky and whimsical artistry. I love shots that are strikingly composed or capture a unique detail of a particular place.
And don’t forget the cute animal shots!
It can be hard to find great people to follow on Instagram amongst the noise, but there are some talented folks using the app. Here are a few of my favourites:
This account is full of quirky and interestingly composed shots, plus plenty of photos of adorable dog Maddie as she travels around America with her owner.
I think this might actually be my favourite Instagram account, for all the dreamy, snow covered landscapes and striking portraits. Scroll back far enough through the feed and watch the seasons change. Honestly, beautiful.
Another account that primarily shares striking landscape photos and makes amazing use of leading lines.
The National Geographic feed is fascinating. It features a variety of content from landscapes to pictures of animals or people from around the world and is always thought-provoking.
These whimsical photos taken in Mississippi make brilliant use of colour and often have a fairy tale quality about them.
Gorgeous landscapes and city shots that are full of bold colours.
This photographer captures life in Germany with her adorable dog, Sugarbear. The pictures have a vintage feel, and it’s impossible to resist those big brown eyes gazing up at you.
Another set of stunning images documenting the photographer’s travels around the world.
This is another technically magnificent account, full of colour saturated landscapes that also use leading lines to great effect.
Featuring a mix of cityscapes and detail shots, these images taken in and around New York capture the essence of the city.
These accounts probably reveal a lot about the sort of photography I appreciate, but they’re all stunning and worth checking out.
