Instagram Straighten Tool Reduces Quality

Hey fella Photographers!

I noticed today while uploading a photo to my Instagram profile, that the Straighten tool in Instagram REDUCES the image quality. So, if you care about your photos then try to use different Straighten tool until they fix this issue.

Samples:

Without Straighten – Original (Notice the trees)

With Straighten – 0.3 (Notice the trees – Blurry)

Create Stunning Instagram Videos

Create stunning Instagram videos, think of unique ideas.. Use creative transitions.

Try to Google Instagram videos, and learn from others:

  • How did they shot their videos?
  • What apps did they use?
  • What scenario did they use?

And then, you’ll be able to invent new creative ideas, using and building on the ideas you’ve already seen.

 

This Video Has Been Shot Entirely using Instagram

 

That means each frame was shot through the app and then edited together similar to a stop-motion. It’s a music video for The Plastics Revolution, shot in San Francisco by Arturo Perez Jr. (via)

Here is another example:

Once you have Gramblr’s photo uploader, you just:
1. Sign in to Instagram
2. Choose the photo you would like to upload
3. Add a caption
4. Hit upload
5. If the text boxes are empty on the confirmation window, something went wrong… try again and it should work!

Earphone as Shutter Release!

Do you want to take photos from distance? Or Do you want to take more steady shots?

How about using your iPhone’s Earphone as a Shutter Trigger?

Either a Bluetooth headset, or the normal iPhone Earphone.

Press the Volume Button to take a shot, and have fun! :)

You can even cut the earphone, and still use the volume button as shutter release:

Petzval Effect on iPhone – Swirly Bokeh

Finally I got it! I’ve been experimenting lately on how to accomplish the best Swirliness out of a camera, and then I found a way to create that “Swirly Bokeh” on an iPhone!

I’m happy with the results so far.. :)

The problem is I cannot get “less” swirliness, but I manage to get “Sharpness” at the center.

**Never edited, straight out of the iPhone

Here are some of the photos I took today, at Multnomah Waterfalls:
