I-N-S-T-A-G-R-A-M anno 2014

photo by Kreetta järvenpää with phone,

It's Sunday. My first week with Instagram is soon over. I'm so late with IG I know. But somehow I've felt it's too overwhelming - too many photos coming and going. Too much photo noise if you know what I mean.

But I did it. I saw Sandra's invitation to take part in IG challenge to take selfies. That was the final call to me. I took it and did it. I have had some troubles to accept phone as a camera. Forgive me. But I've thought you need a real camera. Well, I was so surprised when I opened a phone photo file in PS. Oh my god, photos size was so big 14,4M. I don't like to read manuals so I usually test and nowadays you can find so many good tutorials in YouTube. I think that's amazing. Sounds almost joke to say - watch a YouTube video. Or what you think?

These photos are taken with camera but not with any IG filters. I've noticed that VSCO is in big hype now. I haven't used it but so many does. Do you? Do you like it?

If you like to follow my IG you can find it here.

Where I can find you in IG?


ps. These silver shoes I found many years ago in Beyond Retro shop in Stockholm. I think they give quite nice sparkle to our winter Sunday. Have a lovely week!


  1. This post is so interesting! I understand you, I also had trouble considering a mobile phone as a medium for my own photography. Till I purchased my current i-Phone . Then everything changed! It' s great to see things from a new, fresher prospective.

  2. Well, I have I need to upgrade my mobile in some point :) We'll see when Barbara!

  3. Hi Kreetta, welcome to the world of instagram! I usually use an app called snapseed to edit my phone photos. I have a samsung, too, and I think it works fine, most photo apps are available for android, too, now. Even vsco - I just downloaded it and havent's really gotten into it yet, but we'll see.

  4. I have to try those also, Lena. Thanks for sharing! But I just compared my samsung photo to iPhone photo and iPhone won...

  5. I've enjoyed your debut into the IG world and your really fun selfie shots. I too just really started myself. Just started using VSCO and the filters they have, I imagine there's a lot more to play around with as time goes. Before I use a filter, I always play with the exposure, crop and possibly straighten on Snapseed. I'm @mel_chesneau
