Instagram, Hit or Miss?

 

I keep reading about Instagram and how much learning people get from it. Is it worth getting on to?

Instagram is one of the fastest growing communities and also houses some of the biggest names in photography as well. Over the course of its updates, Instagram has moved from just being an app about filters, to offering more serious control over your images. Through the hashtags, you can discover your favourite kind of photographs and different perspectives!

All the major publications in the world have a presence there. Journalists have been able to document high-tension and conflict areas through Instagram. Over the last couple of years, startling images from wars, natural disasters and other phenomena have made their way into people’s feeds. It is truly an exciting medium!
