Today, the entire photography industry is driven by mobile cameras. The DSLRs (and also Mirrorless) are becoming more and more niche every passing year.
While you might always argue that a serious photographer will never fall into these tiny, sometimes inferior, mobile cameras, it might all change in a few years time. The innovations in the camera segment are rapidly catching up with their big brother–DSLR.
Whether the DSLRs or Mirrorless cameras will be extinct in a few years or not is debatable, there’s no doubt that more and more hobbyists and amateurs will resort to the mobile cameras.
As the famous saying goes, “the best camera in the world is the one that’s with you,” holds good now, more than ever.
I have been using my mobile to take photographs from decades. I still remember vividly borrowing my brother-in-laws Nokia smartphone more than a decade ago to snap some photographs on our trip.
I still use my mobile phone–iPhone 6s–to take photographs. I have loads of photos from my mobile camera!
Today, Instagram has reached a billion monthly active users! Can you believe that?!
While Facebook is the most popular social media site which also relies heavily on photo sharing, Instagram is undeniably the King of Photo sharing apps.
I recently joined Instagram (annoyingly late for a professional photographer) only to discover that it’s not just about the Filters as it’s usually thought to be. I mean, Instagram became famous for its easy-to-use filters that are great, the speed of upload, and a possibility to share your photos across the social media platforms.
When I Dug Deep into Instagram…
WhenI dug deep into Instagram, that’s when I realized the real power of the app. It’s loaded with all the post-processing controls that we normally use in Adobe Lightroom! (As you are aware, I’ll soon be releasing my brand new video course on Adobe Lightroom).
I was really impressed with the whole bunch of post-processing tool that Instagram supports. Also, the ease of use is next to none. And, that’s what Instagram is famous for, at least till the founders Kevin Systrome & Mike Krieger were part of it.
Introducing…InstaPower (A Free eBook!)
I thought there are a billion users who are uploading their photographs every single day, and they might not even be aware of the fact that they have these powerful post-processing tools at their disposal!
So, the next thing that came to my mind was, I could very well empower all these users and you to convert their snapshots into great shots! Of course, I am assuming the photos have to be good in the first place for that to happen.
So…here’s the guide to uncovering the post-processing power in-built into Instagram App.
