How to Instagram like a pro
Instructional videos from a popular Pro Instagrammer
I recently came across some instructional tutorial videos on how a pretty popular Instagrammer takes and edits his photos for Instagram. He is legit (currently at the time of writing this article), his Instagram account has 282,000+ Instagram followers: @mrbenbrown. I have found three videos on his YouTube channel and embedded them here so you should check them out.
In the videos, Mr Ben Brown talks about how to edit Instagrams on computer as well as on your mobile. He gives some pretty good general photography and Instagram tips and walks through his work flow and the photo editing software / apps he uses: Adobe Lightroom for pictures coming off his DSLR to Snapseed and VSCOcam. I pretty much use the same apps and workflow for my Instagrams (@itchban) as i find it is the easiest and quickest way to edit pictures.

Hi friends. Just checking in to let you know that I've decided to move Visual Inspirations series (see below) off to it's very own Tumblr blog. Most of the images in the visual inspirations series are sourced from Tumblr anyway so this just made more sense.
Do check it out - on desktop if you can. The blog looks best browsed on a large desktop monitor:
Yep - I lost two whole years worth of photos and videos. I didn’t take my storage workflow seriously enough and I paid the price. I’ve since revamped my entire workflow from the bottom up, and have come up with a pretty great solution.
