Are you on Instagram? It’s one of the most popular apps out there, so I gave it a whirl. Described as “Twitter with pictures instead of text,” you snap low-quality, square pictures and apply optional filters to them before posting them for everyone to see. Like Twitter, you follow the accounts you’re interested in. Sounds cool, right?
I’m already posting pictures in so many places, so Instagram is always an afterthought for me. The low-quality photos with filters are supposed to be clever, I suppose, but to me it’s just not as good as the better photos on Twitter and other places.
I’m trying to find a niche on Instagram, so what should I photograph? Handbags, of course! I tend to have different bags all the time, and I take them many different places. I’m going to use my Instagram account mostly for handbags about town, fashion pics, and other pretty things. I have a lot of purses, so hopefully I can keep things interesting.
