Do you Instagram?

I started using Instragram a few months ago for fun.  I take a lot of food pics with my iPhone!  Many times, I don’t take blog pictures of weeknight things I make due to lack of daylight or time.  Food pictures look pretty unnatural with flash photography, unless taken by someone with real photography skills.  (Ahem, not me.)

What do you think?  Do you love or hate Instagram?

Cinnamon rolls rising…

Weeknight stir fry…

A pancake feast for two…

Molten lava cakes…

Or, even delicious pasta dishes…

Without Instagram, I’d be missing out on a lot of lovely food memories.

I love it.

P.s. Follow me on Instagram @thedrivencook!

    I feel somewhat embarrassed to say I have never heard of Instagram before. :-) Mandy

    I have not used Instagram, but I LOVE Pintrest, which is a wonderful way to categorize photos and see what others are doing. I know what you mean about trying to get a photo of dinner when it is dark by 5:00 pm, it’s tough. However, I highly recommend Adobe Lightroom as a finishing tool for photos, it does wonders and is super easy to use (more so than photoshop), it is my best friend since I’ve not yet made friends with my camera. :)

    I LOVE instagram! I totally agree that it’s great for food pics during the week when you don’t have the best lighting/tons of time. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that nearly all of my instagram pics are of food. I will definitely start following you!

    I don’t Instagram. And I ask myself if I really need another way to spend time online – - but looks like so much fun. I may need to check this out!
