Win a Place On Our Mobile Photography Workshop With Our  First Photoion Photography School Instagram Competition!

Instagram has changed the way we share and consume photographs. 75 million people open their Instagram application each day on their smartphones. Since it was invented in 2010, more than one billion pictures have been posted via Instagram from all over the world.

A smartphone is also a camera that you have all the time with you. It comes with limitations, but it’s also amazingly discreet. It allows you to do great street photography, intimate and candid shots.

Instagram is about mobile photography, Instagram is about speed, Instagram is about community, Instagram is about real time sharing.

Instagram has been increasingly used for documentary photography and not only by amateurs, but also by professionals documenting important events such as: American soldiers’ lives in Afghanistan, political elections in Iran, the Arab Spring, conflicts in Libya, hurricane Sandy in NYC and more.

Are you already using Instagram? If not, it’s time to start doing it!
