Instagram was installed on my budget mobile handset, a Nokia Lumia 520, as soon as it became available on Windows App Store. Was eager to try this popular photography tool and indulged in it for a few weeks. Loved the square image format and the spontaneity associated with it — of capturing images quickly and casually (since a mobile phone is frequently carried in a pocket), applying filters (like quick fix post-processing), seeing the final result on screen soon after and the ability to share images on social media instantly (without having to first download them on a computer).
However, while using the app, missed the (old-fashioned, if I may say) handling, control and image quality of a physical camera and ended up switching (back) to a pocket, carry-everywhere point-and-shoot digital camera for casual photography. Shall perhaps return to Instagram in the future; for now, am pleased to share some images taken in the short period of using the app.
