Occasionally, I take a photo that I feel really pleased with, and if I’m honest, the reason I’m happy with it is because it feels like a photo that I might ‘like’ on Instagram.
Is that a funny thing to say? It’s not news to anyone that imitation (very different from coyping) is very a valuable learning tool, and getting the opportunity to see the world through other peoples’ eyes on Insta has definitely helped me learn a great deal about how to notice, compose and frame my own photographs.
In that spirit, here’s the work of a few talented Instagrammers whose posts inspire me as I go about my day, noticing the world around me.
Some treasure hunters do their noticing through a viewfinder, others do it through their pens and pencils.
Do you have a favourite Instagram treasure hunter too? Someone whose work inspires you to go out and do some treasure hunting of your own? Let me know!
