I’m loving the new video feature on Instagram- the only thing is I would like to make my videos better with a tripod or a steadying grip, (which are actually available! at photojojo). Here are some general pro tips for shooting better instagram videos (also courtesy of photojojo). I really enjoy watching the videos that people spend a bit of time and thought into shooting (this applies to pictures as well). No one wants to see your grainy under-lit dinner!! Putting some light and composition into your ‘grams and vids makes the internet and instagram feeds a more beautiful place.
What are your instagram video secrets?
The last iPhone accessory I purchased from Photojojo is the Holga Special Lens & Filter Turret (now available here). Amidst my incessant instagramming, it’s fun to use ACTUAL lenses and filters, it makes your iphoneography more of an experience. Plus, I think it’s a nice alternative to an actual Holga camera, since I don’t really have the patience to wait for film.
The lenses and filters include a macro mode, a heart outline, and lots of other fun stuff. I also like it because you don’t have to take the lenses on and off like my other iPhone lenses- sometimes they’re a pain because I drop them all the time. The Holga is ready for spontaneous photo action anytime the moment arises.
