I love Instagram! And I love it for a couple of reasons: One, I get to easily see updates from photographers that I get inspiration from; and two, I get to keep up with my family and friends. For this post, I want to focus on reason number one.
Like many of you with Instagram, I follow a lot of folks, but how many of them do I really pay attention to? How many of them do I look up when I think I’ve missed their post? Let’s be honest, this probably amounts to only handful or maybe few more.
Here are four Instagrammers that this applies to for me (in no particular order):
(1) Forest & Field Photography (www.forestandfieldphotography.com / www.instagram.com/forestandfieldphotography). Lindsay’s style of photography appeals to me because it’s honest and depicts real life around her home and family.
(2) Meg Loeks (www.instagram.com/meg_nlo and www.instagram.com/megloeksphoto). Meg’s style is similar to Lindsay’s, but a little brighter. I love the way she manages to capture the emotion of her subject.
(3) Ashley Jennett (https://www.instagram.com/thestorkandthebeanstalk). A lot of Ashley’s photos are slightly de-saturated and have a vintage feel to them. I think the feel of these images combined with the realness of the subject, location, and situation, really draw me in. Her images often remind of similar situations or expressions my son makes.
(4) Jake Olson (http://www.jakeolsontutorials.com and www.instagram.com/jakeolsonstudios). Jake’s photos are saturated, bright, stylized, and often have a whimsical feel about them. I love these photos because I feel drawn in by them, and I want to imagine the story that goes along with them.
So, there are four Instagrammers that I enjoy following. Who do you follow, and what draws you to their work?
